On the way to the winter Fest,
The exact origin of the breed is unclear although it is often surmised
that the white belt that distinguishes these cattle from the nativeblack Galloway cattle may be a result of cross breeding
with Dutch Lakenvelder belted cattle.
that's the red one
Some refer to them as sheeted cattle, reference to them as early as
the eleventh century.
Looking at ART , looks like they were in Scotland as early as the sixteenth
art as early as the 1 the Belted Galloway's first recorded history indicates
that they developed during the 16th Century in the former
Galloway district of Scotland.
The Belted Galloway originated in Scotland.
Though they have been found in pictures dated back to the 11th century,
the first documentation was in the
16th century in the former Galloway district of Scotland.
This is a very rugged and hilly seacoast, the breed had to be hardy to survive.
These baby's weigh1,000 pounds (450 kg) to 1,500 pounds (675 kg) with the average
being 1,250 pounds (565 kg).
Calves generally weight from 40 pounds to 60 pounds.
The Belties we had were only to ADORN the Pasture
and used for breeding..
Hello these precious baby's were on the drive to camden.
Yes we are on the way to ice sculpture
There is much speculation on the origination of the breed. The beef is quality marbled beef.
The breed may have been a cross between a Black Galloway and Dutch Belted,
which is a dairy breed. There is no documentation to uphold this theory.
But with all the trafficking between the Belted Galloway and the Dutch Belted is the horns,
which would disappear with the Galloway blood.cattle which were described
in Switzerland and Austria. These "Gurtenvieh" were evidently moved by
Dutch nobility from the mountain farms after the feudal period.
The Dutch were very protective of their belted cattle.
This is a view of the Camden Light house.
