Due to an increased demand from most of the leading high street retailers and food service companies for a sustainable supply of Aberdeen Angus beef. Linden Foods has decided to make available to its dedicated Aberdeen Angus finishers an increased supply of Aberdeen Angus calves from its Linden Livestock calf units.
Aberdeen Angus calves are sourced from local dairy farmers where possible, but depending on supply some may be sourced from local livestock markets. The calves are reared in the Linden Livestock calf units until they are 100 kilograms before moving in batches to the finishing farms. The calves are fully weaned, eating meal and fully vaccinated before they move.
The demand for the Aberdeen Angus calves has steadily grown as the farmers who have purchased the calves have seen the benefits of been able to order and collect a batch of calves that have been well reared, are of a similar age and size. This allows for ease of management during the whole finishing period.
Linden Foods procurement staff are always on hand to provide help and advice on any aspect of production. In particular they are available to provide advice on the finishing of the cattle so that they will achieve the very attractive Aberdeen Angus bonus.
If you are interested in any aspect of the Linden Foods Aberdeen Angus scheme please contact any member of the Linden Foods procurement team.
