Pine Gully Park Belted Galloway Stud is situated in the beautiful rolling hills of Yallourn North.
We pride ourselves on breeding high quality, traditional Belted Galloways.
The Belted Galloway, or Belties as they are known, are an exceptionally hardy breed, with their excellent foraging abilities and being non-selective grazers, has allowed them to survive in harsh conditions, including those of the cold, rocky, mountain areas of Scotland, where they originated.
Their double coat insulates the animals well for the cold conditions in winter, therefore allowing them to not require a huge increase in their food intake to maintain their body weight. The mossy under coat is shed in summer, allowing them to cope in the heat.
Females are highly fertile, producing a calf each year and are known for their maternal traits including their excellent calving abilities. They make superb mothers, with many continuing to breed well into their late teens.
Belties are among the oldest polled beef breeds in the world. They are currently on the rare breeds list in the UK. Some historians believe that the Beltie is thought to have evolved from crossing the Scottish Galloway cattle with the Dutch Lakeryelder cattle over 300 years ago, whilst others believe that they have just evolved within the Galloway herd, as other belted breeds have done in the past.
Then Moses went out and spoke these words to all Israel: “I am now a hundred and twenty years old and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has said to me, ‘You shall not cross the Jordan.’ The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the Lord said. And the Lord will do to them what he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, whom he destroyed along with their land. The Lord will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
