Miniature Belted Galloways
Belted Galloway cattle are a hardy breed that originated in the highlands of Scotland as early as the 16th century. Galloways are recognized as the oldest polled (hornless) beef cattle in the world. Registered Belted Galloway are a highly prized breed and are on the Livestock Conservancy list of endangered breeds, which only in 2007 were moved from the critical list to recovering when they just passed the 10,000 animal mark in the World.
Don't Be Fooled into buying a "mini beltie" that is not a REAL beltie. Some breeders are selling crossbred cattle and those registered with other breeds as Belted Galloways. They are only REAL Belted Galloways if they are registered with the Belted Galloway Society. The belt may be present on ANY cow but does not make them a Belted Galloway!
