Belted Galloway Cattle
Find out what makes our beef so special
The Belted Galloway is one of the most visually distinctive breeds of cattle in the world. Its merits lie not only with its unique appearance and good nature, but also in its hardiness and top quality beef.
Originating in the harsh Galloway hills of South West Scotland, the ‘Beltie’ is well-equipped to thrive outdoors in any climate. Find out more about the history of the breed here.
This remarkable animal is slow to mature,which means its beef has a special flavour and texture which is the envy of other breeds.
“The shaggy coat and face give the Belted Galloway a “teddy bear” appearance. Originally they were a family cow, used for both meat and milk. In the past, drovers always liked to have a ‘Beltie’ in front so they could see where the cattle were heading in the dark. Nowadays, a few discerning chefs and farmers are keeping the breed going.”
This prime roughland breed has a smaller carcase than the Aberdeen Angus but its quality is unsurpassed…”
