Meeting all your needs
The establishment of our 2 calf sorting centres in Fontannes (42) and Pommerieux (53) allows optimal collection across the country. We offer newborn Frisonne, interbreed and Montbeliard calves, Charolais and Limousin calves and weaned calves.
The large volumes of each calf category enable us to meet any demand whether you are an importer, breeder or integrator of veal calves. In addition, our subsidiary Vitagro can also assist you by providing expertise for weaned calf breeding and veal calf fattening.
NURSING BREEDING ANIMALS
Promotion and marketing
The cooperative implements various actions to both promote and market nursing breeding animals from selected livestock farms (within France and for export) but also to provide the best possible genetics according to the breeder’s needs. All of France and all breeding nursing breeds (Charolais, Limousine, …) are covered.
Breeders benefit from a large technical and sales network to market their breeding cattle. An online catalogue on the cooperative’s website as well as regional events (open days, …) are organised to promote animals for sale. The cooperative is also heavily involved in several monitoring stations where the best breeders from livestock farms are put up for auction.
The UCC is one of these genetic selection programs whose particularity is to exploit the phenomenon of genetic accumulation, both on the male and female sides. All calves entering the station are selected for their growth potential while continuing to preserve the females’ maternal qualities. The objective is to maximise the livestock farms’ economic profitability.
DAIRY BREEDING ANIMALS
SOLUTIONS OFFERING COMPLETE GUARANTEES
We are able to offer dairy farmers year-round solutions for buying or marketing breeders of the main dairy breeds.
Our sales staff provide solutions offering all the necessary health and zootechnical guarantees.
We are in a position to offer animals ranging from young 3-week-old heifers to lactating cows, from both conventional and organic farming.
In addition to the French market, we export 2,000 to 3,000 dairy breeders each year, mainly pregnant heifers from third-party countries, via Deltagro Export.
