The Luing herd

Originally Highland x Shorthorn, Luing is now a native pedigree: hardy, good mothers, plenty of milk and excellent meat quality.

Suckler cows

Around 100 Luing cows graze on and around Kellie Law through summer, where they are crossed to a native bull to rejuvenate the core commercial herd of 250 suckler cows. Calves stay with their mother through the first summer.

Mob Grazing

The commercial herd

The core commercial herd of 250 suckler cows enables Balcaskie to offer a range of finishing times throughout the year.

Homegrown provenance

All cattle spend their entire time on the farm eating homegrown fresh grass and fodder. Housing design provides natural light and ventilation and purpose-built handling facilities make use of natural animal instincts and curiosity, allowing livestock flow with minimal interference.
