The ANSWER .....IS GALLOWAY...
Todays cattle market trend is Back to Moderate Mature size.....the Galloway has been there all along.

The Question is.........WHAT ARE YOU WAITING
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.
Today, Galloways 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."
