HERITAGE CATTLE Breeder Directories... Here, we will include as many links we know of to other Heritage Cattle breeder and member directories provided by their herd book registries and associations. We will not reproduce those. Heritage Cattle Directories here are for breeders of unique populations of rare cattle--that may not be known about, easily found or well-represented elsewhere.

RARE CATTLE Breeder Directories... most of these are not heritage breeds, but are rare and unusual cattle with unique genetics or relevant history in North America.

Pinebank heritage Angus
bar-heritage-cattle.com • ANGUS: HERITAGE DIRECTORY is a directory of the few breeders who raise endangered lines of pure Heritage or Native Angus; old original Scottish bloodlines kept pure since before the 1970s frame wars, when “improved” stock (outside breed genetics) were added into the American Angus herd books. Heritage Angus typically range from 2 to 5 frame score {image credit: heritage Angus, Pinebank Angus, NZ}.

Houghton Jr. (1906-1990) was the great grandson of Amory Houghton who founded Corning Glass Works in 1851. Mr. Houghton owned the Wye Plantation from 1937-1979. Jim Lingle became the manager of Wye Plantation and was instrumental in forming the legendary Angus herd. Around 1940 the first Angus herd of 18 females were purchased from North Dakota and Oklahoma. 12 of those 18 cows make up today's genetic influence in the herd today. No other females were ever introduced into the herd. Mr. Lingle imported many herd bulls from the UK until 1958, when the herd was closed. Due to larger British Isles genetics, the Wye herd became popular during the frame wars in the 1970s. Houghton transferred ownership of the major part of his Angus breeding herd to the University of Maryland in 1979, where it has remained a closed herd and an important source of heritage Angus genetics in North America.

AAA fullblood Lowline
bar-heritage-cattle.com • ANGUS: FULLBLOOD LOWLINES are heritage Angus cattle in smaller frame scores that descend from Australian. Lowlines, recently re-branded in US as “American Aberdeens” in 2017, began with pure heritage Angus cattle imported from Canada to the Trangie Research Centre of NSW, Australia in 1929. They were selected & bred for smaller frame scores over decades of research, studying the relationship between cattle size and feed efficiency. When the research ended in 1992, the Lowlines were released to the Australian public, and began to export back to North America in 1996. Fullblood Lowlines today have been kept pure, kept to the old type and were selected for smaller frame scores and high efficiency on grass, and are the major source of heritage Angus in North America today. They come in black and red. {image credit: AAA Aberdeen Angus semen, Steil Knockranny, UKLivestock.co.uk}

vachecanadienne.com
bar-heritage-cattle.com • CANADIENNE Dairy Cattle, aka Black Jerseys, Black Canadienne, French Canadienne or Quebec Jerseys, originated in the 16th century, when French settlers brought cattle over for foundation stock to settle Canada. The Canadienne is hardy, rugged, and well adapted to the Canadian climate. They are long lived and have a docile temperament. They are efficient producers of quality milk. Born red or tan, they darken to brown or black as they mature, keeping a pale muzzle and udder. Cows are generally small weighing 1000 to 1100 pounds. They excel on small acreage homesteads for milk and cheese production. {image credit: vachecanadienne.com}

Riggit Galloway
bar-heritage-cattle.com • GALLOWAY: The Rarest Heritage Galloway in North America would include Riggit or color sided (CS) cattle, which is a nearly extinct color pattern (a genetic expression connected to the white park marking). The Riggit pattern was banned by the American Galloway Breeders Association in 2020. Riggits can be registered in the Canadian Galloway Association in the White Galloway division. Small and miniature framed fullblood Galloway cattle are also very rare. Most belted miniature cattle are inaccurately registered as rare, purebred miniature Belted Galloway--when in fact they are only little crossbreds. The rarest fullblood Galloway in North America might be the miniature fullblood Riggit Galloways. Below this directory see links to the main registry directories for Belted, Traditional Solid, and White Galloway cattle. {image credit: reproduction of painting of a Riggit Galloway; artist: Garrard; circa 1804}

mini Guernsey
bar-heritage-cattle.com • GUERNSEY: Most registered Guernsey cattle today in North America are not heritage (not fullblood); most have been “improved” with Holsteins or Jerseys to better compete in the commercial dairy market. In this directory, we list breeders of old pure heritage island Guernsey cattle, with no known outside genetics in their pedigrees. These cattle typically produce milk on grass, are hardy in most climates, and are known for their milk and butter that has a higher vitamin K, giving it a distinct darker golden color than other breeds.
        History of Heritage Channel Island dairy cattle breeds: In the 1800's the Jersey cow, the Alderney Cow, and the Guernsey cow were all names for the same cows that came from the Channel Islands. Some time after the Jersey herd book was created on the Jersey Isle, they stopped allowing Guernsey Island cattle into Jersey and vise versa. Here is a free book to read online concerning these original Channel Island heritage dairy breeds: This has pictures showing how similar coat patterns were for the channel island cows. Of course, since that division, generational breeding has created the more distinct heritage breeds of Jersey and Guernsey, but at one time they were all simply called channel island milk cows.

        • Traditional Hereford Breeders Club (THBC) was formed in 1996 by Hereford cattle breeders in the UK who wished to maintain the native or Original Population (OP) of Herefords, which were bred from cattle that were born and reared in Great Britain and Ireland, and whose ancestry is traceable to the original 1846 Herd Book. Traditional Hereford cattle are recognized as a Category 5 rare breed by the Rare Breed Survival Trust (who believe there are only around 1100 females in the world). They are descended exclusively from the original population of English Hereford cattle with no imported bloodlines, unlike commercial Herefords. They are the ultimate foragers, capable of producing exceptional beef entirely from grass. They are noted for their ease of calving and very docile temperaments.

Fullblood miniature Herefords "began" at the Point of Rocks Ranch owned by the Largent family of Texas. They, with other breeders, deliberately decided not to follow the fad, and bred cattle with the old efficient types & bloodlines, with smaller frame scores, and increased efficiency per acre of grass.

Cruikshank Golden Thistle, Heritage Shorthorn Society
bar-heritage-cattle.com • HERITAGE SHORTHORN DIRECTORY: Shorthorns that trace back to the Coates herd book of 1822 with pure bloodlines are as rare as old pure lines of Angus and Herefords. The frame wars of the 1970s just about decimated them all. But some were preserved by dedicated breeders over the decades. Below this Heritage Shorthorn Directory, see also the Heritage Shorthorn Society Herd Book website directory. There is a large size range in the Heritage Shorthon breed. The rarest Heritage Shorthorns would include the smallest frame cattle. We have been searching for any fullblood heritage Shorthorns in miniature frame scores, and as of yet, have not found any. There are some lines of high-heritage-influenced Shorthorns (ASA100 cattle) found in miniature frame scores listed in our Heirloom Durham Shorthorn Directory, for those seeking a small verion for the homestead. {image credit: Cruikshank Golden Thistle, Heritage Shorthorn Society}

old heritage Spanish Longhornsold heirloom American Spanish breeds of cattle
bar-heritage-cattle.com • SPANISH CRIOLLO CATTLE are American landrace breeds of Spanish cattle developed over centuries in the New World ~ and include the Corriente, (Florida) Cracker, Pineywoods (Woods or Raikstraw cattle) and Texas Longhorn cattle. Cracker and Pineywoods are small cattle, most 600 -1000 lb range. They produce occasional “guinea” cattle (probably the result of an autosomal recessive dwarf gene), which are smaller versions with shorter heads and shorter legs. They come in a huge array of solid and spotted colors, including brindle, blotching, speckles, linebacks and roans. Both evolved in the deep South where they’re also known as “woods,” “swamp,” “brush,” “scrub” and Florida native cattle. Texas Longhorns come in the same range of colors, and also in a range of frame score sizes, including miniatures. Corrientes sport the same variety of colors and patterns, and have mostly migrated up from Mexico. {image credit: 1941 vintage postcard taken from original oil painting “Pioneers of the West” by the noted cowboy artist and poet, L.H. “Dude Larsen,” Kanab Utah.}

Some ranchers prefer these animals as they can be maintained with less fencing.

bar-heritage-cattle.com • DURHAM; the miniature heirloom Durham Shorthorns are an old line of little dual purpose cattle that were bred from old Shorthorns probably starting around the mid-1900's (if not earlier or all along). Some are very high heritage influence little beef Shorthorns, and some are more dual purpose, and some with outside genetics mixed in, but all have been bred as little Durhams for many years.

old style dual purpose Normande
bar-heritage-cattle.com • NORMANDE Fullbloods are rare in North America. Native to Normandy, France, the Normande is claimed to be descended from the cattle imported by Viking settlers in the 9th and 10th centuries. It is a hardy breed that has been selected for the efficient production of high quality milk for butter, cream and cheese. Not only is it high in protein, fat and calcium, but its milk components include small fat micelle, BB kappa casein, A2A2 beta casein. The Normande has great carcass and growth traits, and it is one of the most marbled breeds in the world. Cull cows as old as eight years can produce prime cuts that rival those of steers. The Normande is well known for its unsurpassed marbled beef, flavor and tenderness, and regularly wins blind tests for its taste. {photo credit: Sociedad de Criadores de Ganado Normando del Uruguay}
