Galloway traits
There are many different breeds of cattle (beef) available, however, the Galloway is one of the oldest naturally polled breeds. The characteristics that the Galloway breed bring to the herd have been stabilised over many generations of breeding, including:

  • fertility
  • ease of calving
  • maternal traits and longevity
  • non-selective grazers
  • high quality and high yielding carcasses
  • produce high quality, healthy beef
  • the breed to cross breed

Galloway bulls have the ability to produce an even line of calves – in colour, polledness and high quality carcasses from mixed lines of cows.  The Galloway polling dominance in crossbreeding ensures 100% polled calves from horned females.
