The Stabiliser® Cattle Company is the UK leader in beef genetics for suckler beef production.

SCC offers a complete package for suckler beef producers from breeding stock through to a premium market for finished cattle. SCC delivers cattle that are driving beef profitability through innovation. SCC coordinates the breeding programme for 110 breeders, called Multipliers, who manage 12,000+ breeding cows to produce the best suckler beef genetics available today.

About Us

The Stabiliser® Cattle Company (SCC) was formed in 1997 by five significant beef producers based in East Yorkshire in response to their requirement to develop an improved suckler cow type to replace their less efficient dairy-bred cows.

The Company is now a UK leader in beef genetics producing Stabiliser® dam line breeding stock and offers added value for finished cattle through an arrangement with Morrisons

The focus of the breeding programme is to improve the economic efficiency of suckler cows and the production of consistently high eating quality beef for least cost from forage-based systems

Many leading Suckler producers recognise that the Holstein influence in breeding cow populations is undermining profitability with poor fertility and by increasing maintenance and replacement costs

Big Beef - Cattle

After several visits to the Leachman Cattle Company in Montana and the USDA Meat Animal Research Centre in Nebraska, SCC directors selected the Stabiliser® breed to develop in the UK as a new and improved purpose-bred beef cow.

The company is expanding the breed by developing a network of recorded nucleus breeders working within a Multiplier Agreement and with breeders who are grading up to pure Stabiliser® status from their existing cow base.

In October 2014 the Stabiliser® Cattle Company was officially recognised as a pedigree organisation by the UK Government under Commission Decision 84/247/EEC.
