About us

Europon Livestock U.K. Has been active in the UK market for more than 20 years.

Abram van Dorp moved to the UK from Holland in the early eighties and ran an extensive dairy farm in south-east England for many years. With his Dutch contacts and practical knowledge, he started supplying farmers in the UK with well-bred continental dairy heifers and ,the more serious breeder, with top genetic material from great cow families.

This business has blossomed and developed over the years resulting in the import of more than 25,000 animals  and building up tremendous experience and contacts on the way.

In summer 2011 Abram decided to move back to his native Holland where he continues to be involved in the business. He is obviously able to maintain close contact on a daily basis with our partners in Holland and Europe.

He has left the day to day running of the company in the UK with Job Postma and the company operates from The Netherlands where he lives.

Job Postma started working with us since 1989.
Being a son of a farmer and livestock exporter he brought with him a wealth of experience when sourcing the best livestock at the best farms for the right prices. In 1990 Job became general manager of Europon Genes Holland and after 3 years being our supplier, we decided to establish Europon Livestock UK together.
Since then, Job and his team have been responsible for the supply of cattle to us. Thousands of heifers were delivered from many countries among which Canada, when organising the legendary Europon foundation sale in 1993.
Today Job is owner of European Livestock Holland, a company we also established together in 2001.

Good service is essential and we are proud of what has been achieved over the last years – hundreds of satisfied customers, many returning to us time after time.
