Galloway cattle are domestic cattle suitable for year-round outdoor rearing. The small- to medium-framed robust breed originates from the eponymous county of Galloway in south-west Scotland. A key characteristic of Galloways is their double-layered coat with long, wavy topcoat and fine, dense undercoat. This, together with their comparatively thick skin and adapted thrifty metabolism, makes Galloways particularly hardy. This is why they can survive harsh winters outdoors without any problems. Today, Galloways are bred worldwide in the pigmentations "black", "dun" and "red".
