The first live exports of UK Stabiliser cattle to France have been delivered
in part of a five-year contract between Stabiliser Cattle Company and Bovinext
to fulfil French demand for British beef genetics.
As Stabilisers continue to be the fastest growing breed of cattle in the UK,
their moderate, easy calving frame with high fertility and efficient feed conversion
traits have opened the gates to international export markets.
Continuing growth in the numbers of Stabiliser herds and performance
recorded cows across the UK and Ireland has prompted the breed’s
parent company, the Beef Improvement Group, to appoint Dr Duncan
Pullar as Breed Development Manager.
A change of breed has transformed performance, lifestyle and
profit for Ulster suckler beef farmers Billy O’Kane and
his wife Liz, who run a herd of 150 Stabiliser suckler cows
