    Hi I thought I would get a chat goin about speckle park cattle because I know a lot of people haven't heard of them. The breed was developed in Saskatchewan Canada ImageUploadedByCattle Forum1395194183.323207.jpg ImageUploadedByCattle Forum1395194200.579727.jpg

    I saw one of your previous pics and wondered what kind of cattle that was.

    I love the color, but then I am a fool for spotted cows. Love an aryshire myself.

    Are they beef?

    They look a lot like Randal Linebacks, except maybe the speckled cows heads aren't as linear as the Linebacks. Randall Linebacks are a rare Dairy breed from New England that seem to throw a pretty good carcass too

    Haven't had a problem with them. All the bulls I have dealt with have been good and cows nice quite easy to handle calves around. Of course there is the odd spazz but every breed has one or two of those.

    Speckle Park are a combination of the genetics of three breeds from England and Scotland:
    Teeswater Shorthorn
    Aberdeen Angus
    English cattle with the white park pattern

    I'm sorry for asking if the Bulls are aggressive it's i knew that each breed is tame depending how you raise them
