EXPORTS of British breeding cattle have reached the £1
The landmark figure has been reached after just nine months
of trading following a 17 year absence from international markets.
In all eleven breeds, including Holstein, Limousin, Charolais,
Aberdeen Angus and Dexter, have been sold in nine countries with
Poland being the UK's biggest customer so far.
Jean-Pierre Garnier, MLC Export Manager, said: "It is obvious
there is a big
potential market for our top breeding animals and that breeders
are keen to improve their herds with our beef and dairy cattle.
"I believe the trade will build up from here and be worth
more and more as people abroad get to see what we have to offer
which is a wide range of absolutely top class stock."
