The modern Durham ox
Why this breed
Shorthorns are dual purpose, promising rich creamy milk, as well as meat with generous seams of marbling, that caramalise and tenderise the beef upon cooking. These abilities require plenty of food, provided by being raised on lush grass pastures where they are most happy. Expect beef with a fine grain and buttery texture, that's well suited to roasting or slow cooking, but also promises well proportioned steaks with ample fat covering.
At Farmison & Co we are working together with farmers and actively promoting values that were in danger of being lost elsewhere through industrial processes.
