Consumers are increasingly looking for high quality, sustainably sourced beef that offers both extraordinary taste and a rich history to it. In response, we have introduced the Longhorn Scheme to create a point of difference to both the end product and the supplying dairy farmer.

Why the Longhorn?

Unlike most breeds, the Longhorn has seen little genetic interference and with a long and fascinating history, it has maintained the highly desirable attributes we require in a dairy-beef sire. 

Hear from our farmers...

I get the assurance of a fixed price going forward, removing some of the volatility in the marketplace.

Before we were put in touch with Buitelaar, the return we were getting on farm was really poor. It’s been nice to now see a return for our hard work and have an outlet for our calves. The fact we’re getting a great price, really drives you to produce better beef animals.

We are delighted with our first Longhorns born on our farm here in Tullamore, a set of twins!! We are very happy with the new Buitelaar Longhorn scheme and hope to kick on with more Longhorn inseminations this year. The guaranteed market and strong price are very attractive factors of the scheme.
