         neighbor using a Blue bull on his commercial herd “Talk about changing a calf
         better over night! I was impressed.” Belgian Blue  breeders are pioneers and continue to have the
                                                                                                is that each

    Belgian Blue Beef Breed History, Facts, & Info!

     As the name implies, Belgian Blue Cattle originated in the
     small European country of Belgium. While today Belgian
     Blue cattle are their own fullblood registered breed, their
     roots can be tracked back well over a century to a crossing of
     Durham Shorthorns and Friesian cattle.

     Initially the Belgian Blue was developed, as most European
     cattle are, for their use as a dual purpose breed or, more simply,
     for both milk production and meat production. For most of
     the early to middle 1900s the breed tried to exist in the dual
     role. However, even at this early stage of breed development
     there was an increasing movement among many breeders to
     develop cattle of a more ‘meaty type’. Following the second
     world war, a liberated European economy quickly demanded
     an increased quality and quantity of meat, particularly those
     cuts of high retail value. This economic demand accelerated
     the development of Belgian Blue cattle in a more heavily muscled direction.

                                                        Finally, in 1974, the breed was divided into two branches,
                                                        one for continued use as a dual purpose animal and the
                                                        other exclusively for meat production. The vast majority
                                                        of breeders concentrated their efforts on breeding the
                                                        Belgian Blue for beef production. Today we see the result
                                                        of the 150 years of work in the modern Belgian Blue.

    Short gestation length
    One of the highest yielding carcasses (meat 80%, fat%, bone 12%) with a killing out
    percentage of 68%-72%.
    Great tenderness of the meat due to the thinness of the muscle fiber
    Higher percentage of quality cuts

Belgian Blue Beef Breed History, Facts, & Info!
The Belgian Blue crossbreds show 16% less marbling and 14.2% more ribeye area than the average carcass.
USDA at the Meat Animal Research Center at Clay Center, Nebraska.

The Belgian Blue breed is hardy and adaptable to a wide range of terrain and climates. They prosper in the
bitter Canadian winters, as well as the hot Texas summers.

Crossbreeding
Virtually no calving issues (less than 2%)
Crossbreds are easily raised
Docile temperaments
Feed efficiency
Early maturing (18 square inch ribeye at 12 months)
Higher lean meat yields

Belgian Blue Cattle are used extensively in Europe as a terminal sire to produce more tender lean meat on
each carcass.

The characteristics of the breed allow the production of crossbreds of the best possible conformation.


Why Do I Need A Belgian Blue Crossbred Calf?
Why would I want to produce 20% more meat from my calves?
            A 1200 pound live weight feeder calf will have a
dressing % of 60% or less from most cattle breeds but the
Belgian Blue crossbred calf will have a dressing % of 64%
or more. That is at least 48lbs more meat hanging on the rail
before processing.
            About 63% retail cuts will be produced from
most of the other breeds but the Belgian Blue cross will
produce at least 71%. All these numbers equal to 92lbs more
eatable meat from a Belgian Blue Crossbred calf or if you
put an average price of $4.00 per pound for the meat that is
$288.00 more money.
            Why would I want to produce more meat with
12% less feed?
The average feed conversion for one pound of gain on an average feeder calf is slightly over 8 pounds of feed.
The average for a Belgian Blue crossbred calf is slightly under 7 pounds of feed per pound of gain. That
equates to over 12%. Basing this ratio on feeding a calf from 600 pounds to 1200 pounds, you would use at
                                                   least 600 pounds less feed for the Belgian Blue crossbred
                                                   calf. With feed being at $260 per ton that is $46.20 you
                                                   would save.
                                                           Why eat a Belgian Blue Crossbred Rib Eye Steak?
                                                   A Belgian Blue crossbred calf has a tenderness score, a
                                                   flavor score and a juiciness score that is equal to or higher
                                                   that certified Angus beef or Herford beef yet much higher
                                                   in moisture and protein than any other breed. The Belgian
                                                   Blue crossbred also has much less fat and cholesterol than
                                                   a skinless Chicken breast. That may not be more money
                                                   but it is much better health wise. Ask yourself, what is my
                                                   families health worth!

     Breeding Qualities
     The Belgian Blues are a hearty breed. Herds are thriving in hot and dry Texas as well as in bitter cold Canada.
     The average calving age is 32 months although with intensive production herds, calving can begin as early
     as 25 months. The gestation length is 282 days with a suggested calving interval of 13 months. The average
     birthweight is 96.8 pounds for a Belgian Blue and 79.9 for a crossbred calf. USDA Animal Research, Clay Center, Nebraska

     2009 Premier
     2009 Premier Breeder - JSH Blues,
     James and Sharon Hunt
      In 2009 the title of Premier Breeder was earned by JSH
     Blues, owned and operated by James and Sharon Hunt from
     Walnut Grove, Missouri. The Hunts first discovered Belgian
     Blue Cattle in 1999 in Central California at a local county
     fair. After further research on the Internet and learning
     about the health benefits of these cattle for today’s health
     conscious consumers, the Hunts began their Belgian Blue
     adventure for their beef business and for their own needs
     for a healthy beef product. An instant success with positive
     response from their customers. Business became too busy for their small operation and limited time
     while working full time jobs. Their love of Belgian Blue Cattle took over and subsequently they
     migrated to the Midwest to be more centrally located with breeders and sanctioned shows for their
     new love, showing their Belgian Blue Cattle.

     After just four years showing Belgian Blues, the Hunts have proudly bred and produced several
     Champion and Grand Champion heifers and bulls with the goal of continuing the traits of this
     wonderful breed of cattle and introducing more of America to a healthier beef choice.
      Now maintaining a herd of 130+ head of percentage to fullblood cattle, the Hunts would be more
     than happy to help new and existing breeders of all types to grow and expand this wonderful breed
     of cattle. Check their website, jshblues.com, for more information and photos.
