The Belstead Herd
Is a herd of pedigree Lincoln Reds. The breed developed from cattle brought to the East of England by viking invaders.
They are reknowned for being easy to handle, hardy, long lived, easy calving and good mothers. This makes them an excellent suckler cow.
The meat is succulent and tasty making it very sought after. So much so it has been sold at Harrods!!
The Belstead herd is in it's infancy but we hope in time it will grow. Our foundation cows are from the excellent stock of RG Parkinson & Sons of Donington on Bain, Lincolnshire. Robin's childhood home. Our bull is from CL Bembrige's Anwick herd which has also done so much to promote this lovely breed.
We shall be selling Lincoln Red beef in the future.
