I was at the fair last month and saw this type of beef cow it was short and stocky,,, the owner said it was very well tempered,,didnt go through the fence often haha,,and it ate almost anything, including ragweed and golden rod?? it was black like an angus with a white stripe around the middle,,, thet said they all have that distinctive strip,,,,, she told me the name of the breed ,, but of course ,, I forgot,,,any body with any info on this breed??? I have some whitefaced herefords now and the wife thought about getting some of these to expand our pasture, thanks Pat

About 30 years ago, dad bought a 15/16 belted Galloway bull from a man in Bar Harbor, Maine. F14, maybe you know who he is (was). Very gentle. Even when he weighed upwards of a ton, we never were afraid to turn him outside. Never acted ugly at all.
We also had Dutch Belted cattle. Dad loved the white belly band.

We had a few Belted Gallaways in the herd about 10 years ago . They will eat about anything and always come thrugh the winter looking better than most . As far as price go`s a good black bull will throw calves without the stripe most of the time . Would like to have some more of them .

looks like the cookie you take apart. seems i heard them called gallaways. neat to look at but bring not so good market prices around here or so i'm told.

I think your either right or close to it. They are either Belted galloway, or gallalees. I remember studying up on them some in Ag class 21 years ago. We had some guys in the area who raised them, but not near as popular as the angus, hereford, or shorthorns.
