Simmental Cattle and Blue Belgium Cattle Ready for Sale

 

Spring is here and we are collecting a large number of cattle, mainly bulls from the Simmental and Blue Belgium breed. Our current livestock has a weight of around 300-600 kg/head and is of the finest quality. Most of it is Simmental but we do have some Blue Belgium heads that are sure to impress.

We prefer to work with the Simmental and BlueBelgium breed because they are of a higher quality compared to the Holstein (black and white) breed of cattle. They have a better meat to weight ratio and a higher survivability rate, therefore lower risk of death during sea transport.

Livestock Export During Winter

As some of you might already know we have a lot of snow right now in Romania. For the past week or so we have had powerful blizzards with snow as high as two meters in some areas and winds up to 100 km/h. It certainly sounds quite extreme but we are actually used with this weather during wintertime. To be honest we did not really had a proper winter this year, with the only snow falling in the past weeks. Temperatures are also way below 0 degrees Celsius, with some areas witnessing as low as -25 degrees Celsius, which is quite cold even for us.

Some of our clients ask us if we are still able to offer sheep for sale during winter, knowing the rough conditions we have to put up with. Although it is much harder to do business at these low temperatures and snow, the good news is, as a livestock exporter, we are prepared. This is mainly because we have enclosed housings for sheep and cattle with a capacity of over 8,000 lambs and bulls. Inside these livestock stables we have a temperature of over 18 degrees Celsius, which is good for a comfortable living. Most farms do not have such facilities, which makes accommodating livestock almost impossible during these months.

So even with such cold temperatures and lots of snow falling, it is business as usual for us.
