SMALL, BUT NOT MINIATURE
Australian Lowlines are small but not miniature cattle and do not have the adverse genes of some of the miniature cattle breeds.
SMALLER BY DESIGN
For the last 150 years, beef cattle have been bred to be big to produce the huge slabs of meat that were a symbol of affluence for our ancestors. Australian Lowlines are designed to be smaller and to mature earlier.
Better educated 21st century markets require smaller higher quality cuts of meat with good marbling and just enough sub-cutaneous fat. It is for those markets that Australian Lowlines have been developed. DEFINITELY NOT MINIATURE Australian Lowlines are serious beef cattle that win awards against all comers in carcass competitions. They're cute enough for anyone but they're definitely not miniature. Australian Lowlines.
Bred for better beef.
Check the factsAustralian Lowline cattle are small and beefy Angus cattle, scientifically developed in Australia for low birth weights, stocky bodies, early maturity, an extremely high dressing-out ratio, and a higher percentage of quality cuts.
More beef to the hectare Because they're such good doers, and of blockier build than traditional Angus cattle, Australian Lowlines produce around 40% more beef to the hectare than other beef cattle.
Very tender And there's a bonus in the beef. It's finely grained and even more tender than the Angus beef we already enjoy.
Check the factsDairy farmers.. easy calving. When you use Australian Lowline bulls as terminal sires over your valuable dairy heifers, you can expect smaller calves and easy and unassisted calving.
Increase milk yield Because the Lowline gestation period is shorter (average 273 days), you'll get up to 10 days more milk from your cows... for FREE.
Grow faster, finish earlier. Although small when born, Lowline Friesian or Lowline Jersey calves grow faster and finish earlier, on less feed, than dairy-cross calves sired by other breeds of beef cattle
Check the factsLifestyle block farmers will appreciate the easy handling of Australian Lowline cattle, which are about 60% of the size of a traditional Angus cattle beast. Bulls are around 110 cm at the hip and cows 100 cm.
Placid, easy going Australian Lowline cattle are a pleasure to farm. They're easy on your fences and easily handled by women.
Although small, they're serious beef cattle descended from some of the world's best Angus cattle. Your friends will be amazed at the quality of your home grown Australian Lowline Angus beef.
