Why choose the Belgian Blue?

Regarding the meat, it has a low fat content, and the constant demand of the market causes the breeders of this breed to continue the genetic selection.

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.


Meat with a low fat content

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.
