Pineywoods cattle

More Information:

One of the earliest breeds of cattle in US history, the Pineywoods, has currently dwindled to less than 200 hardy individuals. The Pineywoods is a rugged breed that is well adapted to the humid South. The Pineywoods Cattle are humpless and have variable horn shape and length with a hide color ranging from black and roan, to yellow, to red and white spotted. There is current interest in preserving the Pineywoods breed because of an appreciation of its environmental adaptations to place and its cultural heritage in the Gulf Coast states. They are listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy and are on RAFT's list of the Top Ten Endangered Foods in America
