Galloway Cattle

Posted on 08 September 2010

The Galloway is one of the world's longest established breeds of beef cattle, named after the Galloway region of Scotland, where it originated.

 

Characteristics

The Galloway is naturally hornless, and instead of horns has a bone knob at the top of its skull that is called a poll. This breed's shaggy coat has both a thick, wooly undercoat for warmth and stiffer guard hairs that help shed water, making them well adapted to harsher climates.
