LOWLINE ANGUS INFORMATION   
 
LOWLINE CATTLE ARE EASY CALVING, GOOD NATURED CATTLE THAT ARE VERY FEED EFFICIENT AND MAINTAIN THEMSELVES ON GRASS.  THEY HAVE EXCELLENT TASTE, TEXTURE AND TENDERNESS BEEF  CHARACTERISTICS AND EXCEPTIONAL RIBEYE PER HUNDRED POUNDS OF BODY WEIGHT WHICH TRANSLATES INTO VERY HIGH YIELDING, HIGH QUALITY, HIGH VALUE BEEF CARCASSES.
 
FOR THE LARGE SCALE RANCH OPERATION, LOWLINES LOWER LABOR AND VET COSTS AND PROVIDE MANY ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES.  COMMERCIAL HEIFERS BRED TO FULLBLOOD LOWLINE BULLS CALVE EASILY AND BREED BACK QUICKLY, REDUCING THE CALVING INTERVAL. HALFBLOOD LOWLINE COWS MAINTAIN THEMSELVES ON ABOUT HALF THE FEED THAT IS REQUIRED BY A FULL SIZE CROSSBRED COW AND WEAN MORE POUNDS OF CALF PER ACRE.
 
LOWLINES ARE A PERFECT CHOICE FOR SMALL ACREAGE FARMERS.  THEIR SMALL SIZE MAKES THEM EASY TO HANDLE AND MINIMIZE EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS.  THEIR FEED EFFICIENCY IMPROVES THE CARRYING CAPACITY OF A FARM. 
 
THEY WERE DEVELOPED BY THE TRANGIE UNIVERSITY IN AUSTRALIA.  AVERAGE SIZE COWS WEIGH FROM 650 TO 950 POUNDS.  AVERAGE SIZE MATURE BULLS WEIGH FROM 950 TO 1350 POUNDS.  AVERAGE BIRTH WEIGHT IS BETWEEN 42 AND 48 POUNDS.
 
THE AMERICAN LOWLINE REGISTRY REQUIRES THAT ALL FULLBLOOD LOWLINES HAVE DNA PARENTAGE VERIFICATION  TO ASSURE GENETIC PURITY.
