The Lowline Cattle
Lowline Cattle are the product of a research project carried out at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales from pedigree registered Aberdeen Angus stock purchased from Scotland, the USA, Canada and Australia in 1929, with additional top purebred Angus cattle being brought into the herd.
From 1964 the research herd was completely closed to additional outside animals.
In the early 1990s the Lowline herd was released into the open market. Purchased animals have since moved to New Zealand, USA and Canada and the UK.
Bred for Beef
Less Gestation Time
Gestation time is two weeks less than for other cattle, which makes the bulls/semen, Very useful for dairy heifers for stress free calving and a vigorous growing calf. Their carcase quality also makes them a suitable terminal sire for beef cross-breeding programmes.
It’s in the Genes!
Lowline Cattle do not carry the Dwarfism gene which many small or “minature” breeds have. Even first time heifers show ease of calving. The cattle are naturally docile and very easily handled and are the perfect breed for the small acre farmer. We stock at 2.7 per acre plus calves at foot.
