Our UK-wide network of specialist calf rearers rear Buitelaar calves to an agreed protocol, under the highest animal welfare standards for our supply chain. Each rearing unit produces even batches of strong and healthy, well grown calves, which are then sent to our finishers to complete our integrated supply chain cycle.
These calves are offered with underwritten price contracts to our supply chain farmers looking for quality livestock with price guarantees. We do also offer a number of these calves for sale for the private buyer to finish with no obligation to return these cattle to Buitelaar.
Calves are typically sold at 130 – 150 kgs at 14 – 17 weeks of age. All of our calves are weighed, graded and health checked by our experienced Tech Team; only calves that are fit and healthy, meeting our weigh-for-age criteria are sold. All cattle are vaccinated, de-horned and castrated with the exception of the Dairy Bulls destined for our Rosé Veal supply chain. These are solely vaccinated.
If you'd prefer us to call you about our reared calf sales at a time that suits you, please fill in your details and we'll get back to you soon.
We are proud of the recognition we have received for our commitment to the highest possible welfare standards in our supply chain which aids our goal of delivering a top-quality finished product to our customers.c
