Introducing our Belted Galloways

 

The Belted Galloway is a traditional Scottish breed of beef cattle. It derives from the Galloway cattle of the Galloway region of south-western Scotland. It is adapted to living on the poor upland pastures and windswept moorlands of the region. The exact origin of the breed is unclear, although the white belt for which they are named – and which distinguishes the breed from the native black Galloway cattle – is often surmised to be the result of cross-breeding with the similarly-coloured Dutch Lakenvelder breed.

Belted Galloways are primarily raised for their quality marbled beef, although they are sometimes milked or kept for ornament.

Belted Galloway Beef has been shown in a research study conducted at the University of Guelph - to have a total fat content of about 2% an extremely low percentage. The same study showed that the Belted Galloway Beef tested only contained about 1% saturated fat. In addition it showed that Belted Galloway beef had the same fat content as chicken and fish so fits in well with a healthy diet. Belted Galloway beef is exceptionally tender, full of flavor and juicy and were the winners of the 2003 Sydney Royal Show "Beef Taste Test". 

Kimstead Farm’s cattle are 100% Natural and Grass Fed as well as Free Ranging.  They are Antibiotic/Growth Hormone Free.

All our beef is processed at a USDA facility and will come packaged and ready for your freezer.  Therefore, nothing now stands in the way between you and an amazing, healthy eating experience.   

 

 

 

 How it Works

 

   Let's say we have a 1,000 lb animal that would result in a hanging weight of about 540 lbs.  Cost is $5.75 per pound “hanging weight”. Finished/packaged weight is less. 

 

  The table below is representative of the amount of meat, types of cuts and price for each size share.

 

                                                   THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. 

                        The final weight, cuts and total price will vary depending on the animal.

 

 

   So for the above representative example, for a 1/8 share you would get 46.5 lbs of packaged meat plus bones (for soups or puppies).  Of course you do not have to take the bones.

 

      The balance will be due when the animal is processed (late summer/early fall) and the exact weight is known.
