Its stage seven of the Rare Breeds Steaks Challenge.

The seventh breed up for the challenge is ¦.SHORTHORN

The Breed:  The Shorthorn breed has been developed over 200 years from Teeswater and Durham cattle native to the north-east of England. The cattle come in three colours, foxy red, white and roan- the latter looks like a red cow dipped in cream! The Shorthorn grows well when reared in grass-based farming systems, producing lots of fine meat with a delicious marbling of fat.
