Welcome to a short historical documentation
of the Galloway Cow
Newborn calves weigh in the range of 70 to 80 pounds. Galloways are extremely winter hardy because of their heavy, double coats. Galloway breeders throughout Canada and the northern United States maintain their herds outdoors year around. Even in the brutal weather of February, 1996, Galloways thrived in the Upper Midwest, West and Canada at temperatures of - 25 to -50 F. with straight hay rations and no manmade shelter. They shed their coats in the spring, and adapt very well to summer heat. Galloways are economical to feed during the winter because their double coats reduce their consumption of calories. For the same reason, there is no need to fatten Galloway breeding stock to prepare them for winter. Moderate body condition is sufficient.

The Belted Galloway First imported into Canada in 1939, the Belted Galloway is easily recognized by a white strip around it's midriff. The Belted Galloway has a loyal following in the asthetics market. Popular at the many local shows and county fairs, they also produce good beef popular with health concious consumers. Generally not as large and growthy as Galloways and White Galloways, they are often maintained in small herds under minimal management. Generally thought to have developed from a belted dairy animal and the Galloway in the 19th century, exact details of their origin and development are not documented. The first herd book for Belted Galloways was started in Scotland in 1921.

The White Galloway The newest member of the "Galloway family", the White Galloway is a competitive animal both in beef production and the show ring. White park colour pattern Galloways are first documented in Scotland in the early 20th century. There are three distinct sources of White Galloways worldwide: 1.The American source White Galloway, the most prolific in Canada, USA, Australia & New Zealand. 2.The Scottish source White Galloway, with fair numbers in Britain and Germany. 3.The Canadian source White Galloway, a very rare animal with only five animals in Canada and several in Germany.
