Lincoln Red

Lincoln RedLincoln Red cattle have been imported into Australia from the United Kingdom since the early 1900s. The Australian Society was formed in 1971 at which time there were a limited number of purebred Lincoln Red cattle of both sexes in Australia. This nucleus has been expanded by natural mating, artificial insemination using overseas sires and the introduction of a grading-up program.

Lincoln Reds are an efficient, early maturing breed. They offer minimum care, are easy calvers and are not prone to sunburn or eye cancer.

The breed is a deep red color, may be horned or polled and is reasonably large-framed with a rapid growth rate.
