We have been selling meat from animals reared using suckler cow husbandry since the early 1980s. As the name suggests, these cows and calves grow up with their mothers – just as nature intended, making suckler cow husbandry the most natural form of cattle-rearing. The meat from these animals is available from us under the Natura-Beef and Natura-Veal brands, with the Naturafarm quality seal.
Natural feed and plenty of exercise
Calves (Natura-Veal) reared using suckler cow husbandry stay with their mothers for five months and drink their mothers' milk. The cows (Natura-Beef) live with their mothers for ten months. In addition to their mothers' milk their main diet is fresh grass and hay. This is the best diet for them as it provides them with natural proteins and removes the need to supplement their feed with soya. The animals can go outside whenever they wish, either to the field or – in winter and in adverse weather – to the exercise yard.
