The Galloway is one of the oldest and purest of our native cattle breeds. They are famed for their hardiness and can live off the poorest of land. The Galloway female is the ideal suckler cow, and will produce an excellent beefy calf, which is in great demand by people wanting highest quality, natural grown beef.
Galloway Cattle have a great deal to offer and will fit into any system, either a traditional hill farm or low land farm. Galloway popularity is growing due to the increased interest in British Native cattle and environment issues. At the 2009 Royal Highland show, the Galloways won all the major trophies including the individual, native interbreed, interbreed and pairs competitions. Never has one breed dominated all the cattle championships at Scotland’s premiere show. See here for more details.
