Delighted to announce that last weekend during the award ceremony, the category ˜Beef Up Your Butcher’ sponsored by Eblex was won by Glyn Slade Jones of Kington using our beef. It was a public vote which took place last summer. Glyn also won joint Gold for ˜Best Ribeye Steak’ in the County. This category was judged as a blind tasting with individual scores for appearance, tenderness and flavour and again it was our animal that Glyn won with.
We’ve been supplying Glyn for the past 4 years and he had been so pleased with the quality of the meat that he knew he wanted to enter it and both he and ourselves are delighted with the outcome.
Highland Cattle is a beef breed which is exceptionally hardy with a natural and unique ability to convert poor grazing efficiently.
We finish all our cattle off grass, and it is 30 months before they are ready for Glyn.
It’s been a successful time for our show team too, winning in Scotland, Wales and England. Here’s to continuing good fortune for our fold of pure Highland Cattle from West Herefordshire in 2013.
