Galloways are a very old Scottish breed and are recognised
as the oldest polled beef cattle in the world. The earliest recorded evidence
of the breed in Australia is 1858, however it wasn’t until 1952 that
a registration body was formed.
Galloways, with their unique double coat of hair, can be
Black, Dun or Red in colour in each of the three types – Galloway,
Belted Galloway and White Galloway (all referred to as Galloways).
Miniature Galloways have all the characteristics and qualities
of Galloways, only offering it in a smaller package which may be beneficial
for small acreages.
Bulls at 10 to 12 months of age to be no more than 110
cm at hip height; maximum height for showing, at any age, is 125cm at hip.
