“Lowlines are Aberdeen Angus beef cattle in a compact, smaller frame size. They originated in Australia, where the beef is known for its excellent taste, texture and tenderness characteristics. They are docile and well-suited to beef production on grass. This means, Lowlines are more efficient in converting grass to meat than today’s larger breeds. Because of their moderate size, two Lowlines can use the pasture space of one of today’s larger breeds, providing more beef per acre of grass and making the land more productive. That’s very important on an island with limited pasture space.
We purchased our first Lowlines at the start of 2008 and brought them to Hawaii from the mainland. Going the extra mile to care for our cattle, we decided to become Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World – it aligned nicely with our beliefs and provides our customers another reason to trust the quality and integrity of our product.”
Hawaii Lowline Cattle Company’s herd of Lowlines is currently the only registered Lowlines in the state of Hawaii. The first calf born in 2008 was cause for celebrating the start of Hawaiʻi Lowline Cattle Companyʻs “first Hawaiian Lowline herd”.
