Cattle Cow

How old is a cow / cattle when it is taken to the slaughterhouse?

Both supermarkets and butchers good age?

This is not so simple. In cattle in the United Kingdom are in the food chain to humans of approximately 16 months depending on their development. Continental breeds like Limousin will fatten faster than say Hereford / Angus types. The rule has now gone 30 months in cattle petrol and therefore more than 30 months may also enter the human food chain now. But anything over that age is the brainstem tested to ensure that did not get BSE. What comes pre1996 also not going into the food chain because of BSE regs again. They go on a special diet and are slaughtered and incinerated. Hope this helps. This means that the beef in our food is composed of a range of younger animals through older cows that are no longer farmed.
