History - As the name implies, Belgian Blue cattle originated in central and upper Belgium. During the second half of the 19th Century Shorthorn bulls were exported from the UK to Belgium to improve the native population which was primarily of the dairy type (red-pied and black-pied cattle). Some sources also cite the introduction of Charolais breeding throughout the 19th Century.

History - Like their name suggests, Highland cattle originated in the Highlands and west coastal islands of Scotland, areas severe in climate and lashed by the North Atlantic gales. Throughout the long recorded history of Highlands, breeders have taken great care to retain the original characteristics of these cattle. Originally, the breed was divided into two classes, the West Highlands or Kyloe, and the Highlander.

Ankole‑Watusi cattle, with their large, extensive horns, are among the most striking members of the bovine kingdom. Herds resemble slow-moving, multicolored forests of bare trees as their horns sway with every step. The Ankole‑Watusi breed is part of the Sanga family of African cattle breeds, which originated over 2,000 years ago from a combination of the Egyptian Longhorn cattle and the Zebu Longhorns originally from India.

History - The Texas Longhorn was fashioned entirely by nature in North America. Stemming from ancestors that were the first cattle to set foot on American soil almost 500 years ago, it became the sound end product of "survival of the fittest". Shaped by a combination of natural selection and adaptation to the environment, the Texas Longhorn is the only cattle breed in America which - without aid from man - is truly adapted to America. In his book The Longhorns, J. Frank Dobie states this situation well: "Had they been registered and regulated, restrained and provided for by man, they would not have been what they were."

The government needs to increase the population and productivity of Bali cattle, a national asset other countries do not have, an expert has said. The Bogor Agricultural Institute’s (IPB) animal husbandry professor Ronny Rachman Noor said on Thursday that Bali cattle had often been undervalued by the government because they were local livestock.

A senior Indonesian minister has taken aim at Pauline Hanson over her claims that Australian tourists could bring foot and mouth disease into the country from Bali because cattle roam the streets there and “s--t on the ground”. The One Nation senator has joined the opposition in attacking the Australian government’s response to the outbreak of the livestock virus in Indonesia.

A total of 1,202,282 cows have received the foot and mouth disease (FMD) vaccine as of Wednesday noon, the FMD handling task force has reported. According to the task force's report received in Jakarta, no animals other than cows have been vaccinated against FMD.

Livestock export player Wellard says the cattle trade with Indonesia has slowed to a trickle amid animal disease outbreaks in what is by far Australia’s biggest market. Wellard also noted a continuing decline in sheep shipments from Australia to the Middle East as the Albanese government moves to shut down the trade.
