It ain't easy being green, but Sethypoo managed to make a friend on the farm anyhow.

This was our only #riggitgalloway heifer calf from 2017 - we are hoping for more this season. #albertabeef #grassfedbeef #farmlife “Riggit Galloways share the characteristics of the other #Galloway types, but is easily distinguished by its white dorsal stripe. The main body colour is usually black, but there are occasionally dun and red Riggit animals. The Riggit was well-documented within the original polled Scottish cattle, but became greatly diminished in the late 1800’s. Seemingly this trend was partly driven by a trade which required evenly marked animals. From this, a preference was developed for plain black calves, at the expense of the Riggit. Over several decades, Riggit Galloways were only seen as occasional throwback calves, born when the right combination of old Galloway lines were bred together. These calves were rarely retained, as they simply didn’t ‘fit the mould’. The turnaround for these animals began in the 1980’s when a group of Scottish cattle farmers, agreed to keep, and breed, Riggit marked Galloways once more”.
