Beef Cattle

In 2014, Scottish cattle farmers generated a turnover of £837m, some 27.5% of all Scottish agricultural output, from the sale of animals for meat production and breeding.  71% of the cows in Scotland are beef cows and only 29% are dairy cows.  This is the highest ratio of beef to dairy cows among the countries of UK and Europe.
