DLT CATTLE

We purchased our first Lowline embryos in the spring of 1999 and have taken pleasure in these exceptional animals ever since. We aspire to provide the Lowline cattle market with quality genetics and performance.

 

Fullblood Lowline

In 1929, Australian animal scientists at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales began to develop the Lowline breed from registered Aberdeen Angus seedstock purchased from the Glencarnock Angus herd in Manitoba, Canada. Since their arrival into the United States in 1996, they are now referred to as American Lowline cattle. American Lowline cattle marble off of grass and minimal grain to produce a tender, fine-textured cut of meat, based upon pure Angus genetics. American Lowline cattle are naturally polled, require less management, experience calving ease, offer reduced production costs, and result in higher stocking rates. Lowlines are extremely adaptable to a wide range of climates. Because of their small size and docile nature, the breed is ideally suited to management on small farmsteads, family operations and ranches of all sizes. Lowline genetics offer the cattleman a low maintenance cattle breed known to have high conversion rates of forage to muscle/flesh. Utilizing these genetics can maximize the return on your investment.  The Lowline is ideal to show, use as freezer beef or classify small acreages for agriculture exemption status.

Percentage Lowline
Many of the benefits that are associated with fullblood Lowlines can be applied to the percentage Lowline cattle.  We at the Double Lazy T strive to produce half-blood and three-quarter blood percentage Lowline cattle that are moderate framed, functional and easy-keeping. Our cattle are selected for low maintenance requirements, structural integrity and easy fleshing ability.  Fertility, udder structure and disposition are also closely considered when selecting cattle.  We believe these basics are essential to our herd and will produce percentage Lowline cattle that will perform out in a pasture as well as the feedlot. 

Our goal is to produce red and black percentage Lowlines that reach a frame score of 4 or 5, with cows weighting 1,100 to 1,250 pounds.  It is our belief that moderate framed cows will perform better when times are tough; for instance, when drought or other quirks of Mother Nature reduce the amount and quality of feed available. The nutritional needs of moderate framed cows can be more easily met during such times, allowing a cattle operation to more efficiently weather such challenges.  Also a quality moderate-sized cow can be terminally mated to a bull that emphasizes feedlot performance, carcass yield and grade in the offspring.
