Grasser skins: a small portion of the Dutch calves is not fattened in stables but graze outside in the pasture and therefore do not have the specific characteristics of fat calves. The skins are thinner and the grain quality is less than that of the fat calf.

Horse skins: in the Netherlands horses are slaughtered that come from hobby holders, riding schools, horse riding sport and horse dairy farms. The bulk of the slaughter volume consists of larger horses that yield salted skins of ca. 16/17 kilos.

Head skins: the head skins come from trimming of the skin where the piece of head skin is sliced from the neck. These hides are salted in a drum and drain in a mold resulting in the fabrication of neat, straight export pallets.
