I sold a Black Galloway bull to a guy with 50 Lonnghorn cows. All F1 calves were polled. The F1 calves all came out solid colored, except the ones that had a white stripe on their back, the calves did too.
I'm not familiar with the Galloway breed, but I do see some people say they cross them with angus and get a really good calf. What are the pros to using the Galloway bulls?
Galloway cattle are an extremely hardy, feed efficient, maternal breed. They have structural soundness, and outstanding longevity. They feed out well, and produce a highly marbled carcass with very little backfat. They are very good grazers, will cover miles to find feed, and will eat just about anything. They have shown resistance to "high altitude disease", as well as many external parasites. They are a true outcross to all breeds. They have many positive qualities that can benefit most cattle operations.
