Local Butcher David Moore from Country Meats, Aghagallon firmly believes that Native breeds such as the Hereford is the way to go when providing a top quality cut for the table. With his most recent purchase of the Hereford Champion at Allams show and sale on Tuesday David intends to give his customers top grade meat for the festive season.
‘The Hereford provides a marbled finish to the meat which gives it the edge, the difference it makes to the taste is remarkable’ stated David. With better colour and high in fatty acid omega-3 it has a distinctive taste.
The breed itself thrives well on a forage based diet making it a clear winner for beef farmers over the UK making it easy to finish with lower financial input.
If you would like to try a cut of quality Hereford beef call into David at Country Meats over the Christmas period, a great alternative to turkey this Christmas.
