About Galloway Cattle

Galloways 

An Ancient breed of Cattle

Noted in chronicles of Roman Scotland, Galloway cattle have been with us for millennia. This durability, combined with feed efficiency and natural marbling, make Galloway cattle an ideal choice for both pure bred and crossbred beef herds. 

For the cattle Breeder, the wonderful double hair coat is a great asset. With a long haired outer layer these cattle are able to withstand all sorts of inclement weather. The long outer coat sheds moisture in wet weather while protecting against the sun in nice weather. The thick woolly under coat is an insulator to protect against severe cold.
