The Randall or Randall Lineback cow is a purebred remnant of lineback-patterned cattle once common in New England. It was traditionally a multipurpose breed used for both dairy and beef but whose size, docility and willingness also made it a capable draft animal. Despite its origins as a popular breed, it almost entirely disappeared from crossbreeding with Holsteins.
With the efforts of a few conservationists the breed is now coming back from the brink of extinction. Randall beef has an incredibly sweet fragrance and is both tender and flavorful.
