I've seen these before. Coming from Wisconsin where ALL we seem to have are Holsteins, I love seeing different breeds of cows. I love, love, love the Belted Galloways. My grandma lives in Northern Minnesota and knows someone who has a huge hobby farm, and that's the only kind of cow he raises.

I have seen this kind of cow in the Snoqualmie Valley. I wondered what it was. Feed on Roughage, eh? That sounds a bit like those goats you can rent to come and eat down obnoxious blackberrry bushes. They are cute. Reminds me of the orange and black banded caterpillars we used to find as kids.

Where does the red come from?? Belted Galloways are black and white, and any respectable Angus is of course black, so where does the red come from

The red comes from red angus. The BueLingo Society accepts both red and black as primary colors for buelingos. The reason why there is red is because when we started raising buelingos, we bred a buelingo bull to bunch of angus (red and black), herefords and mixture of other breeds. All the cows in the picture are 5th generation cows, which means that they are purebreed buelingos now. Alot of farmers will start by breeding a buelingo bull to a mixture of cows, becuase the belt trait is so dominant that the cows will more and likely produce a belted calf even if they aren't belted themselves. I hope that helps answer your question.
The BueLingo Society has a website that you can check out www.buelingo.com, it kind of describes the specifications for buelingo cattle.

Cool, I'm a traditionalist you see, in the UK, where I come from we only have black Angus, didn't even know of a red one until we came to Canada. I love the black belties, and the red is kind of cute
