BELGIAN BLUE BREED
Belgian Blue breed
The Belgian Blue is a breed of beef cattle from Belgium. It's extremely lean, hyper-sculpted, the ultra-muscular physique is termed "double-muscling". The double-muscling phenotype is a heritable condition resulting in an increased number of muscle fibers (hyperplasia),
This particular trait is shared with another breed of cattle known as Piedmontese. Both of these breeds have an increased ability to convert feed into lean muscle, which causes these particular breeds' meat to have a reduced fat content and reduced tenderness. The Belgian Blue is named after their typically blue-grey mottled hair color; however, its actual color can vary from white to black.
