I know we are talking about cross breeding them. Has any one used them for Recips. A couple of them in the pics above looks like they would make good ones.

Family and friends aren't here for ever; so make as many memories as you can.

The cow in the picture that is standing alone, and also in pasture with the little bull calf walking along:  I sold that pair to Betty Deeney in Montana and I believe that after she calved the calf she was carrying, the intention was to use her as a recip.  Don't know if she did it successfully or not but the BueLingo cows are tremendously maternal.  As you can see in one of the other pics, a different one of my females would let any of the several calves nurse on her.  When I moved my cattle from WY to Michigan, the trucker managed to kill the dam of an unweaned calf but sent the little calf along with the rest of the herd anyway.  (Long story there that I won't bore you with!).  After they arrived, and about 4 days later, I noticed that the BueLingo cow in the picture (who had already weaned her own calf more than a month previous) was mothering him.  In about another week, she had "mustered" up new milk and raised him completely 'til I weaned them.

I was just looking through the show circuit and noticed some belted galloways in one of the shows. I was thinking the same thing except i was thinking about taking like a limi or something and trying it but  i really like the Yellow Jacket Idea

I find myself liking Galloway cows WAY more than I like the bulls..not to say that they aren't good, but some of the cows are just fantastic specimens.

i had made the same observation in the past but this is probably the first bull i've seen pictured and i kinda like him.
It is better to keep one's mouth shut and to appear stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt.

Anyone know what the differences between Belted Galloway and Dutch Belted would be? They look almost identical. I have a neighbor that has the Dutch Belted cattle. Brent
