About the Breed
Lowline cattle are a structurally sound, good natured, easy calving, feed efficient, grass maintained cow in a compact body. Not to be misled as a miniature, Lowlines are a hardy breed capable of high quality meat production with low impact and less feed per pound of carcass. A mature cow can weigh between 750 and 1000 pounds and stand 38-44 inches at the hip. Very docile, they are easy to handle and are easy calvers, producing calves between 40-55 pounds at birth. They are excellent mothers who are very nurturing and good milking. A mature bull generally weighs between 1100 and 1500 pounds and will stand 42-48 inches at the hip. Lowline bulls are virile and are easily managed. Commercial breeders are looking more and more at the Lowline bull for their heifer breeding programs.
