This contract runs from April until November

Beef cattle finishers can available of an opportunity to purchase weanlings or yearlings with a guaranteed factory price of €5.25/kg at slaughter at the upcoming ROI Dexter Cattle Group sale, according to Sean Flannery.

The sale will take place on Saturday, May 18th at 12 noon at Drumshanbo Mart in conjunction with an organic cattle sale.

Beef Kill

Pedigree-registered organic and non-organic entries will go under the hammer; all breeding Dexters will be pedigree-registered with the Dexter Cattle Society in the UK where the Herd Book is held.

Beef Kill

All steers will be birth notified with the DCS also. “This qualifies them for the Dexter beef kill in Nenagh at the ABP factory where a premium price of €5.25/kg is paid for steers 24-30-months, pure-bred birth notified, Bord Bia-approved, grass-fed with a cover of fat.”

This Beef Kill has the support and approval of Bord Bia in conjunction with amalgamated beef packers in the Nenagh factory. This contract runs from April until November with an expected kill of 10 steers every 2 weeks.

“Dexters will finish on grass on reasonable to marginal land without meal or nuts.” Growth

There are 170 Breeders of Dexter Cattle in the ROI with approximately 130 in Northern Ireland. The Dexter herd is “growing steadily” in Ireland with 10-15 new breeders joining the DCS UK Herd Book every year.

“This is creating good demand for breeding heifers and increasing supply of finished steers which is not keeping up with the demand for Dexter beef.”

“Dexter beef is a high-end meat sought after by top-end hotel and restaurant chefs to meet the increasing demand of their discerning customer diners.”
