Weaned Finishers

Weaned Finisher

A Weaned Finisher farm takes weaned / reared calves from our dedicated team of Calf Rearers at 14 – 17 weeks of age. These calves are offered with a underwritten price contract.

Our UK network of specialist calf rearers rear calves to an agreed protocol for our supply chain, so that you can confidently start the finishing stage with a consistent batch of healthy, well grown calves.

When delivered to your farm, calves will typically weigh 130-150 kgs; prior to this, calves will have been weighed, graded and health checked by our experienced in house Tech Team. Only calves that are fit and healthy, meeting our weight-for-age specification will be delivered. All cattle are vaccinated, dehorned and castrated with the exception of the Dairy Bulls destined for our Rosé Veal supply chain. These are left entire.

We also offer native cattle breed schemes which require a store period of grazing following the rearing stage. The cattle would then enter the finishing period.

Hear From the Farmer

"The benefit of working with the Buitelaar Group is you know how much the calves cost and you know what price you are going to get for your product from the moment the calf comes off the lorry as long as you hit the targets."
