The Luing is most widely recognised as a COW BREED.
Bred to the sire of your choice your Luing cow will produce an economical steer well suited to market specifications. She will rear well grown calves and will pass on her feed efficiency to her off-spring. First cross Luing Heifers are very sought after for breeding.
A nucleus Luing herd bred to sires such as Simmental or Saler gives the opportunity of breeding a self-contained cross-bred herd of hardy, very productive cows also well adapted to out-wintering.
