First ever Hereford’s into Belgium

The first ever recorded export of pedigree Hereford cattle into Belgium, follows recent sales of Herefords into France, Holland, Denmark and Germany.


The six in calf heifers born in spring 2006 and in calf to Ruckmans 1 Cardinel and Ruckman’s Casino and seven maiden heifers born Autumn 2006 and spring 2007, were sold by Ruckman’s Limited to Belgian farmer, Mr J Devlieghere.  


Delighted with the sale was farm manager Harry Hewlett who said “he was pleased to see the shipment go off without a hitch, following the disappointment of sales falling through due to export restrictions in 2007/08.”
