What a great opportunity to promote a wonderful cattle breed! Our family just recently purchased an adjacent property so that we can make our family sustainable and expand our farming endeavors. This heifer would be a great way to start a herd of breeding cattle in addition to our feeder calves and other livestock. Both my husband and I grew up on farms and it has been important for us to raise our 4 children on a farm as well. Next year would be our oldest son's first year in 4-H and this would make a great project.

I'd love one of these for my 5 year old grandson. I think that would make him want to join 4-H.

There are almost 2 dozen Galloways (people) in Oregon and Washington (all family) and what could be more appropriate than to win a Galloway heifer.

I would love to get this for my son. He wants to raise them ,but has had several surgeries. This would give him a start.

This is by far my most favorite bovine. I have a small herd of beautiful Boer goats and this little girl would be a very happy cow at my place!!!!

I've been reading up on this breed. We'd like to get a herd started soon. This heifer would make a good start.
