Beef for Dairy Herd

Dovea boasts the widest range of beef sires suitable for dairy herds. We currently have a huge selection of Angus, Hereford, Belgian Blue and Limousin bulls suitable for the dairy herd. Currently, beef calves born in dairy herds are a hugely important part of a dairy enterprise. We feel that only proven easy calvers should be used on dairy heifers i.e. Bulls with greater than 90% Reliability on calving difficulty.

Below are examples of Angus, Belgian Blue, Hereford and Limousin bulls which we recommend using for the dairy herd.
