The breed in general

Welsh Black cattle originate from the southwestern British Isles.


Welsh Black cattle are black; some white color is allowed on the underside behind the navel.

Polled status:

Horns are supposed to be uniform and sweeping. A horizontal horn slightly antrorse in the tip is preferred. Genetic polledness and scurs are possible.


The head is of medium size with wide forehead and has a good depth due to distinct maxilla. The relatively big ears are fully covered with soft hair. Shoulders are solid and compact; the carcase is long with strong bone structure and strong hooves.

Production traits:

The medium-sized animals are long-lasting, robust and have good resistance to diseases which is why they are especially suitable for pasture grazing. Welsh Black have solid, distinct amount of meat on the valuable body parts: Shoulder, back and haunch. Their meat is remarkably fine-grained, particularly tender and very juicy. Wide birth canals and low calf birth weights resulting in trouble-free calving are more advantages.
