Ellerbrocks to host Belted Galloway event

April 18, 2013 | 0 comments

Matt Ellerbrock and family of Hunt Club Farm in Burlington, will host the Great Lakes Belted Galloway Association annual spring Field Day on Saturday, May 4.

The event is planned as a day of fun and camaraderie with other Beltie breeders and enthusiasts. It will also give anyone interested in getting into Belties an opportunity to learn more about the breed.

Belted Galloway cattle, which come in three colors - black, red and dun - are growing in popularity in Wisconsin.

A recent tally by the National Belted Galloway Society reveals that Wisconsin now has the highest number of registered Belted Galloway cattle in the United States.

The breed originated in the hills of Scotland and descendants of those cattle are now thriving in the hills of Wisconsin.

Belted Galloways are a medium-framed beef animal that produces exceptionally lean and flavorful meat. (More information on their carcass qualities is available at www.beltie.org.)

A Wisconsin breeder from Milladore, Dr. Michael Caldwell and his wife attest to the belted Galloway meat qualities. Caldwell has conducted intense studies for the breed.

The results of his research, Belted Galloway Beef is Nutritional, and other information about the benefits of Beltie beef are available on the web site. Information is also available on the history and attributes of this heritage breed.

The meeting at Hunt Club's farm will include short educational programs, including presentations from Select Sires, area veterinarians and feed representatives.

Peg Reedy, from the University of Wisconsin-Extension Walworth County office, will discuss toxic weeds and what the drought has done to pastures.

Organizers said additional presentations are also in the works.

To join Beltie breeders for the field day, contact Kathi Jurkowski at 815-629-2306 or kathikowski@gmail.com, Karlyn Etheridge, tekcattle@yahoo.com, or host Matt Ellerbrock at huntclubbelties@hotmail.com to register.

A registration fee applies, which includes lunch.
