Aubrac cattle Ireland
Aubrac cattle have been providing us with consistent results for over 19 years.
Consistency in docility, milk, ease of calving, lively calves, good growth rate and feed conversion. Cows can milk well off grass, hay or silage, they do not need meal. Fertility, longevity, and calving interval are good. They are low cost cattle that are pleasant and easy to work with. Aubrac suit our system of farming which is not intensive but as we are full time farmers the profit has to be enough to sustain the family and keep on investing in the farm. With Aubrac cattle, we can do that. We are not interested in shows but look for an efficient suckler cow. The Aubrac we have for sale tend to sell well, be it selected heifers and bulls for breeding, or Aubrac bulls or bullocks for finishing. A few cherry picked pure bred Aubrac bulls are sold each year for pedigree breeding or to go on suckler or dairy cows. 19 years down the road, and with 70 pure-bred in-calf Aubrac cows, we can back what we say with figures.
