A very versatile breed, Belgian Blue is notable chiefly for its strong musculature, even temperment, and climate-adaptability.

Somewhat new to the United States, Belgian Blue has achieved a niche popularity due to its (relatively) healthy meat, which has lower fat and cholesterol levels than many other breeds (although some have claimed that this is due to poor marbling).
