What is Welsh Black Cattle?
The Welsh Black is a native British Breed descended from cattle of Pre-Roman Britain in the rough mountain and hill country of Wales. Originally there were two distinct strains of Welsh Blacks, both known as a dual purpose animal; the compact sturdy North Wales type and the bigger, rangier South Wales type. The successful intermingling of these types over the past 90 years has resulted in an optimum sized animal with an emphasis on beef production. The unique traits of the breed are a result of this heredity and environment.
The Welsh Blacks are now established throughout the U.K. and have proven themselves in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US.
Welsh Blacks offer the commercial cattleman a profitable alternative for herd improvement.
The purebred breeder and the commercial cross breeding cattleman can use Welsh Black to aid in a progressive and profitable breeding program.
