Galloway Bulls for Sale
Spring time is for shopping for bulls. You may ask yourself - why do I need
a Galloway bull in my herd? The answer is profit. Galloway genetics will moderate your herds' frame size lowering your
input costs. The Galloway will bring down your birth weights resulting in more live calves. More live calves equals more pounds
of beef weaned. When the drought is over it's time to keep your replacement heifers and she will be a lower input cow - reducing
the price / cost of wintering her. She costs less to winter because of that beautiful coat she will grow - 1 inch of hair
cuts 25% off feed necessary to stay warm. Finally, she will be moderate size at 1000- 1500 lbs.

The Question is.........WHAT ARE YOU
Galloway Cattle originate from the Scottish coastal
lowlands. This harsh climate developed a very hardy breed that withstands harsh winter, has rock hard hoofs, are excellent
foragers and resistant to disease.
They entered into Canada First during th 1850's and then into the US in 1865. They were the favorite then because of their
hearty disposition, feed efficiency and performance on the rail in Carcass Competition.
are being "rediscovered" as a breed that is highly feed
efficient, ideal on grass fed programs and "Back to Basics"
on frame size. Two of our Herd Sires have tested positive for all 8 of Pfizer's Feed Efficiency Genes. See the Pfizer Gene Star Results Page.
Pressure on feed costs from the Ethanol & other programs are going to demand that a producers cost/budget
"pencil." The cattle industry can't survive with cattle
that don't perform. That's why we say "Back to Basics - Back to Galloway."
