As sunshine brought out the barbecues the weight of burgers sold shot up by a massive 33 per cent - an extra 2,513 tonnes - compared with the same period in 2005, reports the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX).

BRITISH cattle and cattle genetics came under the spotlight in Bavaria when EBLEX sponsored the British Livestock Genetics group to attend their first show following the lifting of the British beef export ban.

Inquiries received by the group included queries on breeding cattle and on semen and embryos for a total of 10 different breeds.
