Windshiel beef is produced from Aberdeen Angus sired calves. The herd is outdoors all year round, grazing clover-rich pastures from Spring through until Autumn. During the winter they graze on a kale/turnip mix, supplemented by hay or wholecrop silage which has been produced on the farm.
All the cattle are spring calvers and start calving at the beginning of March. The Aberdeen Angus herd are renowned for being easy calvers and good mothers, which is perfect for an outdoor calving system. Replacement heifers are selected according to their calm nature and good mothering traits, which helps us to maintain an easy-going and easy-calving herd.
The beef is hung for at least three weeks to produce a tender, succulent, marbled meat packed with flavour.
