Cull cow

Post by Julie » Thu May 28, 2020 8:24 pm

Hi,
This is my first post!
Just wanted to ask all the knowledgeable Dexter owners living especially in Leicestershire / Lincolnshire/ Nottinghamshire area what they do with their cull cattle?
Bearing in mind I don't personally want the meat.
Thanks

What livestock marts are in your area? I would look at the forthcoming sales and make enquiries.
Up here (N. Yorks/Co. Durham/Northumberland) there are regular sales of cull, or Over Thirty Month (OTM), cattle. I used to book a haulier to take my culls to mart. Sadly he's now retired, so next time I'll have to go myself. At the moment there's a "drop & go" policy, mart staff unload beast and take paper work, vendor doesn't leave vehicle. Cull bull trade is currently very strong locally, so good one vendor made the journey from Kent!

We can slaughter our own cattle locally up to 72 months but after that we send them straight to Taylors at Bamber Bridge, who advertise in the Farmers Guardian. Unfortunately they only seem to cover Lancs, Cumbria, Cheshire & Yorkshire, though. It's a real shame as cow beef is perfactly good eating but I haven't yet found an abattoir that private kills over 72 month cattle within a viable distance.

How many have you got to go? If it's just the one and especially if it is very old or lame, just ring your local knacker/ fallen stock man, he will deal with it on the property then take it away. Some hunts still take cattle, again they will cull and take away. Nicer for the animal to go at home, but of course money and numbers may be a factor.

I have just run a cull cow into JS Meats at Uttoxeter, they paid £130 per kg deadweight for my dexter but just check if you ring them. They only kill 2 days a week and you have to be there for 7.00am.
