The Blue Grey steer doesn’t travel far in its 2+ years of life. Some never leave the farm on which they are born until the day that they sold to local butchers.
There are only two annual sales of Blue Grey steers, one at C&D farmers mart in Longtown, Cumbria and the other at the H&H Annual Blue Grey sales at Newcastleton, Roxburghshire. The small community of farmers who produce Blue Greys are all known to one another and those buy the Blue Grey steers for fattening and for sale as beef are also long-established and known.
The complete traceability of Blue Grey beef is without challenge and should provide great assurance to would-be consumers in these times of meat scandal.
