Lowline Angus Cattle originated from a closed herd of "low" growth rate Black Angus Cattle in the mid 1900's at the Trangie Research Facility in Australia. Easily recognizable by their small frames and friendly dispositions, these animals have the potential to revolutionize global beef production.
Coming up to only waist/chest height on the average adult, these animals are very easy to handle and manage. They are gentle and trainable, often comparable in temperament to giant labrador retrievers searching for treats and affection. Even Lowline bulls are family-friendly. Our herd would love a visit from you!
While producing fewer pounds of beef per animal, Lowlines produce more beef per acre than any other breed of cattle. They have the greatest ability to convert nutrients into bodyweight, making them the perfect animal for a grass-fed model. Unlike many breeds, they do not require any grain or corn to reach optimum health and market gains. They take non-usable pasture forage and efficiently convert it into a digestible product for humans.
Lowlines produce smaller cuts of well-marbled beef that have a healthier ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. Their meat has less total fat compared to conventional beef without compromising tenderness due to its high intramuscular fat content. Did you know that meat quality is genetic? We work tirelessly to retain only the best tenderness and marbling genes in our herd. Try some for yourself!
New born Lowline calves weigh an average of 35-45 lbs, guaranteeing calving ease even for first calf heifers. Many dairy and beef farms benefit by using Lowline bulls or semen to prevent dystocia (difficult or problematic calving) in smaller/younger animals. Stress-free calving allows for more productive cows and improves longevity.
This breed is naturally polled, uniform in calving size, and fast to finish. They were developed to suit sustainable and lifestyle properties. All registered Lowlines are DNA-typed and parent-verified. These animals are fast growing, early maturing, and demonstrate impressive longevity.
