Australian Lowlines are compact, beefy cattle derived from pure Aberdeen Angus genetics and all registered cattle are DNA-typed and parent-verified to maintain purity of the breed. Some benefits of Australian Lowline cattle include:

  • Better value – compact frames, excellent feed efficiency, early maturity and the ability to finish on grass, produce more kilos per hectare of high-quality beef faster, giving producers more dollars in their pocket.
  • Easily handled – Australian Lowline cattle are naturally polled, have good temperaments and are easy to manage making them ideal for women, children, retirees and everyone in between. Perfect for both lifestyle and commercial properties.
  • Environmentally friendly – low impact on paddocks and fences.
  • Showing opportunities – classes are provided at all Royal Shows and many country and regional shows in both Australia and New Zealand.
  • Active support – ALCA Councillors are available to provide information, support and Council guidance. Promotion groups in all states of Australia and New Zealand also provide help and support to new breeders.
  • Certified Lowline Beef is an opportunity for ALCA members to establish a farm business selling their beef.

The Association welcomes new members of all ages and abilities. We have dedicated youth activities for young enthusiasts and will happily help guide you through promotion, competition, purchasing cattle and more.

For those interested in commercial breeding of Australian Lowline cattle, we have information about stud breeding, AI Approved sires, heritage semen and more. Lowline cattle are perfect for commercial breeding due to their compact size, longevity, easy calving and quality meat.
