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.

Annual Spring Breeding Sale – Dingwall – 19th May 2021


The Luing Cattle Society, in conjunction with Dingwall & Highland Marts Ltd. (May, 19th) sold 89 pedigree and commercial Luing cattle at their thirteenth Annual Spring Breeding Sale. Trade was steady for a smaller number forward, perhaps reflecting the difficult spring weather experienced. Both vendors and purchasers were allowed ringside, which helped the atmosphere considerably in comparison with sale conditions prevalent over the last 4-5 months. Buyers were geographically spread from Shetland to Exmoor, with brisk bidding between those present in-person and those bidding online. Pedigree bulling heifers (74) averaged £1586 and sold to a top of £3570, for a pair of 25 month old heifers consigned by F. Scott Renwick, Lochbroom.
