Meet our Belted Galloways

Have you heard of Belted Galloway cattle? Sometimes referred to as Belties or Oreo cows, they are generally black in colour with a thick band of white running around their midsection.

Here are a few more facts about Belted Galloways:

Heritage Breed: Originating from the Galloway region in southwestern Scotland, this breed is known for its hardiness and ability to thrive in rugged climates.

Double Coat: They have a thick double coat that helps them withstand harsh weather conditions, making them ideal for colder climates.

Longevity: Belted Galloways often have longer lifespans compared to other cattle breeds, with many cows producing calves into their teens.

Docile Temperament: They are generally docile and easy to handle, making them a favorite among farmers.

We have a Belted Galloway necklace and brooch in our range. As soon as our Designer Avril saw photos of these distinctive cows, she knew that silver and oxidised silver would reflect their colouring perfectly.

Our Belted Galloway jewellery makes the perfect gift for lovers of this breed of cattle. We have many other breeds of sheep, cows, dogs and other animals on our website.
