The Bleu du Maine breed, in the spotlight at SPACE 2021

The Bleu du Maine breed organises its national competition at SPACE 2021.

 

The Bleu du Maine is a meat breed whose main quality is to produce well conformed lambs. It is a local breed for which farm-direct sales are growing steadily. The Bleu du Maine is above all a grassland breed that optimises the potential of grassland. Their milk production is usually sufficient to avoid artificial feeding even with 3 lambs. They are docile by nature and quite prolific. Lambing is easy. Like all meat breeds, the Bleu du Maine is also excellent for crossbreeding with hardy ewes to improve lamb conformation. SPACE 2021 is an opportunity to showcase all these wonderful qualities.

NATIONAL COMPETITION

Tuesday 14 September from 14.00 to 17.00 
80 animals will compete in front of the judges David Rocheteau and Freddy Vandecasteele
