Belgian Blue

Belgian Blue

Belgian Blues are medium sized, heavy cattle, sometimes with a massive double muscle structure.  Their colors are blue, white, and blue and white.  Belgian Blues are small boned with  a sloping rump, hidden hips, strong legs and a relatively small head. They are quite robust and healthy.

Belgian Blues produce a cross bred steer with a high yielding carcass dressing out between 65 and 70 per cent. The meat is tender with a minimum coverage of fat with a high proportion of the valuable cuts. 

The proportion of difficult births is particularly high among heifers.
