Luing Cattle Society
Why Luings? The Luing breed has much to offer as the hill and upland sector of British agriculture seeks to offset higher feed, labour and building costs. Developed as a cow breed for purely commercial purposes, the Luing continues to fill a critical gap in beef production.
The Luing is extremely hardy and an efficient and fertile mother. Its ability to rear a suitable calf in adverse weather conditions is widely renowned. With good sound feet and a strong bone structure its considerable merits guarantee a good investment and currently place it high on many farmers' wish lists.
