It is a rare breed in which the bulls have an extremely large and well defined muscle mass, they weigh over a ton. Sperm are analyzed for their development, and the breeding specimens are chosen on the eyebrow. The researchers collect sperm from bulls, subject it to tests and if it is “like the book” then it is artificially inseminated in a “quality” female that will give birth to a new sensational animal. The researchers can also define the gender of the future calf based on the analyzes carried out.

Created relatively recently, this breed has an extreme conformation for meat production, which is characterized by “double muscling”. Their musculature is impressive, a fact caused by a genetic mutation. Specifically, in the DNA of these cows there is a special gene that suppresses myostatin, a protein that counteracts the uncontrolled growth of muscle. This genetic mutation results in increased muscle mass by up to 20% compared to other animals for meat.
Belgian Blue is highly appreciated for the fact that all the meat of these cows has almost no fat. This breed appeared in the 19th century in Belgium from the crossing of a local breed with the Shothorn breed, from the UK, with the Charolais breed.
The name of this breed comes from the color of the robe characteristic gray-blue, but the color can vary from white to black. In addition, this breed has a high feed conversion capacity, reduced fat deposits, but also a reduced bone tissue development.
The breed exists mainly in Central Europe and Belgium, but you can find it worldwide. The Belgian Blue is known for its impressive muscle mass, its economic qualities, but also for its frequent use of caesareans.
