Belted Galloways.....the beautiful beef breed!

By

Posted Nov 19, 2011

We have raised Belted Galloways for over 20 years and have enjoyed the breed. They are a beautifully packaged beef breed! Naturally polled, no horns, easy keepers that are energy efficent, too. Belties are medium framed cattle that are good foragers. We do rotational grazing which works well with them. We are happy to be raising a heritage breed, that is making a come back. They come in three colors, red, dun and black. My grandchildren are now showing them in 4-H. The meat is lean, tasty and well marbeled. We could have chosen any breed but we feel the Belted Galloways have been perfect for our farm and family.
