Belted Galloway in pastures near Langley
The bull is a Belted Galloway. The Belted Galloway Cattle Society says that "Belted Galloways are a hardy breed that originated on the exposed uplands of Galloway, in the south west of Scotland. Colours are black, dun, or red, all with the characteristic white belt, which completely encircles the body. These naturally polled hill cattle are eminently suited for converting rough grazing into lean meat. Their double coat of long hair, to shed the rain, and soft undercoat, for warmth, eliminates the need for expensive housing." For more information, see LinkExternal link.
