Shorthorn Cattle

Shorthorn cattle were once triple-purpose beef, dairy and draft cattle, but since 1948, there have been two main types of registered Shorthorn cattle: Shorthorns raised for beef and Milking Shorthorns.

Bernese Mountain Dogs

Bernese Mountain Dogs enjoy draft work such as cart pulling. They are intelligent and easy to train, making them good choices for dairy cattle drivers or watchdogs.

Giant Schnauzers

The Giant Schnauzer is a reliable, brave and loyal dog breed, allowing it to work well as a watchdog or herding dog.


The Rottweiler is easily trained, courageous and loyal, which allows it to excel at many farm tasks. Its farm talents include trailing, guarding, herding, cattle driving and watchdog duties.

Australian Cattle Dogs

With Australian Cattle Dogs’ ardent desire to please and their extreme intelligence, they are obedient for cattle herding and other work around the farm. They are natural guardians and eager companions.

Cardigan Welsh Corgis

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi dog breed is used on the farm in cattle herding. Its protective and devoted nature makes it a good family dog in addition to a farm guard dog.

Brahman Cattle

Brahman Cattle

The Brahman are the larger of the Zebu cattle. If you live in a warm climate, Zebu make great sires, as well as beef and milk producers.

Welsh Black cattle

Welsh Black Cattle

The Welsh Black, a hardy, efficient beef producer, can hold its own against many other more popular beef cattle.

British White Cattle

These mostly white, efficient beef producers have a history that takes them back to Scandanavia.



Yaks, exotic? Think again. Their small size, fabulous pelts and easy-working nature make them a great choice for a small farmer.
