Miniature Galloway cattle are fast proving themselves to be the ideal cattle for first time livestock owners, hobby farmers and commercial breeders alike. Their popularity has increased in recent years and with very good reason. Miniature cattle are popular because they are easier to handle, more environmentally friendly and they need less expensive infrastructure.
Their compact size makes Miniature Galloway cattle easy on their environment and easy to handle. However, it is their docile nature and characteristic good looks that really makes White Galloways the stand out miniature breed. There are very few cattle as attractive in a paddock as a Miniature White Galloway.
1. Non selective grazers
2. Docile and like to be handled.
3. Good mothers that calve unassisted
4. An attractive addition to any property.
5. Highly sort after by buyers & breeders.
Miniature Galloway cattle are often the first choice for first time livestock owners because they want all of the above. They need cattle that are particularly docile, especially sweet natured and renown for their ease of calving. We hope this website will make it easy for first time livestock owners to find the Miniature Galloway that is just right for them.
Miniature Galloway cattle are also becoming the first choice of commercial breeders 'in the know'. With more and more people wanting White Galloways to populate small farms, Galloway breeders are now seriously committed to supplying that demand.

Baden and Raymond at Freedom Rise love the Belted Miniature Galloways, particularly the reds. They have found that the Galloways are easy to look after, rarely ever getting sick - we have never had a problem during a Galloway birth and find them easy on fences. The wonderful temperament of the Galloways makes them easy to work with and tame.
By focusing on the red Belted Galloways at Freedom Rise they hope to compliment the other breeders of miniature Galloways in SE QLD, thus ensuring that those who are looking to buy some animals have available to them all of the different options.
Baden explains their current situation and future plans.
We are currently in the process of building up our herd of Galloways. We have had a mixture of smaller types of cattle such as Dexters and Miniature Herefords for 8 years but have come to love the Galloways because of their looks and beautiful temperament and intend on concentrating on these.
