Galloway World



Galloway cattle originated in the rugged hills of south west Scotland.  Recorded history shows that Galloways have been successfully raised in in the harsh climate of Galloway for four centuries. There is also evidence that the rugged hill cattle reported in the annals of Roman Britannia were Galloways.

In addition to the ancient records, many modern studies of Galloway cattle have been done attesting to the remarkable qualities of the breed. These studies, which back up the claims of our many breeders will in time will be added to the “Why Galloways?” page of this web site as author/publisher permissions are available.

Galloway World Congress:

The next World Congress will take place in 2016 at Gretna Green, Scotland.
