GLBGA's mission is to help promote and educate people on all the advantages of this very special heritage, heirloom breed of Belted Galloway cattle. The GLBGA promotes the value of the Belted Galloway cattle through a variety of venues, including education, marketing, networking, exhibits and cattle shows. Throughout our changes and growth, the mission succinctly phrased by our founders has remained our cornerstone: "A cattleman's breed association dedicated to its members and to the promotion of Belted Galloway cattle." Whether you are new to the Belted Galloway breed or a seasoned breeder, GLBGA wants to give you access to the information and resources you need to answer your questions and to be successful.

proudly raised beltie beef!

As producers of Belted Galloway beef, we know Belties offer tender and delicious beef. We also know our beef is produced in small lots by local farmers on small farms that sell directly to their community. This personal approach to producing beef means your buyers are aware of who produced their beef and where it comes from. You are proud of the product you produce and so are we!
