For farmers, their easy calving is a big advantage compared with other continental breeds. They have small heads and when the calves are born they are lively and grow well.
Bulls have a good temperament and are quiet to handle and they are an excellent option for dairy farmers to cross with heifers. They are excellent terminal sires for suckler herds.
The cows calve in spring and graze the marshes through the summer. The Blondes are turned out on stubble turnips in the autumn and brought in at night from Christmas.
The pure breed Blonde young stock is either sold to breeders or kept in the herd. Any animals that don’t reach breed standard are fattened and sold through Anglia Quality Meats.
High quality store cattle are also available.
