About us – Heuven Livestock

Heuven Livestock rose out of VION FOOD GROUP when they ceased exporting dairy heifers

Heuven combines excellent personal service with guaranteed product quality and delivery – driven by a passion for excellence in everything we do – delivering first class heifers to your farm.


Wouter Heuven has been actively involved in the field of export breeding heifers for more than 20 years. Previously he was active in the sales of farm equipment and export of pigs to southern Europe. Wouter is a graduate of HAS University College with a BSc in Agriculture. He started his own business in 2013 and continues to develop opportunities in the agricultural industry. In his spare time he enjoys shooting on his family farm, mountain biking and spends as much time with his family as possible.
