HEREFORDS CARVE OUT A PLACE AT FIVE STAR BEEF FEEDLOT
posted by: admin-herefordprime, 2nd Aug, 2018 10:00am on the Hereford Prime website

Increasing market demand for New Zealand beef means Herefords are finding a place in the country’s only commercial feedlot. Demand for New Zealand grain-fed beef is growing alongside increasing market orders for grass-fed beef, and that means Herefords are carving out a place in the Angus dominated Five Star Beef feedlot. Five Star Beef feedlot, near Ashburton, is New Zealand’s only commercial feedlot, and this change in the business genetic landscape allows them to supply more beef to both export and domestic markets.
