Buying and Selling Calves

Aberdeen Angus CalvesWe purchase all types of calves direct from dairy farms for our calf collection centres.

From there we supply our contract calf rearing units and also commercial beef farmers wanting to buy young calves to rear for themselves.

In excess of 20,000 calves a year currently pass through our centres and this number is set to grow in the foreseeable future as the demand for batches of calves grows and more dairy farmers realize the benefit of being part of the Blade operation.

Our contract calf rearing units, which are strategically located throughout our trading area, rear weaned calves to order. These calves are reared to 3 - 4 months of age on a strict health protocol and specialised diets thus ensuring that we maximize liveweight gains, and produce a first class calf for the Finisher.

Weaned calves arrive at a predetermined date on the finishing farm in excess of 100 Kgs liveweight with a complete health history and with Electronic identification if requested.

Young calves are bought and sold on a simple grade and weight basis to ensure that calf producers are suitably rewarded for the quality of the calves that are put forward, and buyers receive the quality of calves that they have requested.

Competitive prices are set on a weekly basis.
