President’s Message

2018 has been a fantastic year for Galloway breeders and enthusiasts alike. We have seen a steady increase in demand for our Canadian genetics from abroad as well as an increase in popularity of the breed domestically. Belted registrations this year are higher than the other two breeds. There has been a growing number of new small producers across the country adding Galloways and Galloway genetics to their herds. I have had the pleasure of talking to new as well as established breeders from coast to coast this year about all things Galloway. We are seeing a push towards farm gate sales in live animals as well as beef sales creating a stable niche market. While the general open market cattle prices have been poor, the private sales have remained consistent with sometimes a premium being seen in exceptional breeding stock. Although none of our animals made the trip, a large contingency of Galloway breeders made the journey to the Australian World Congress. Everyone had a fabulous time and it was great to visit with so many breeders. We are all looking forward to the next Congress in the USA, with being a bit closer to home perhaps we will be able to bring some of our animals to show off. The CGA has seen a greater number of Galloways being shown by juniors for different 4H projects. It’s fantastic to see these young people promoting the breed. Our AGM this year was well attended at the home of Brad and Colleen Card of Cranberry Hill Galloways. A big thanks to the Eastern Galloway Association for putting this on. We had an opportunity to visit a certified organic family farm that had dairy, beef and pork divisions. It was extremely educational as to how they maintain everything within the organic model. Both our constitution and our promotional committees have been working hard on a variety of topics. The promotional committee with the help of the regional associations has out done itself again with advertising, displays and education at a variety of events across the country promoting the virtues of Galloway cattle. The constitutional committee has been very busy with several initiatives. First, which was just recently passed by the membership is that the directors for the CGA shall be reduced by three to ensure that the people participating are committed to furthering the breed as opposed to filling a seat. This apparently has been a problem in the past. There will be no elections next year for directors and the three directors whose terms are expiring will be eligible for re-election the following year. Secondly there has been a huge debate within the White Galloway membership as to the separation of the white park and the riggit pattern within the White herd book. The investigation is still ongoing within White Galloway committee, members and geneticists alike. Thirdly, since this is such a large country to maximize participation, we are looking at how to include video and teleconferencing in our annual general meetings. Lastly, there is still a large debate about including DNA verification for females for registration. While fairly easy to implement, it is the potential financial implications that are still being assessed. The weather was certainly challenging for crops but as always thanks to the overall hardiness of our cattle, they are thriving. If you are wanting to keep up to date with Galloways in Canada, please check our website or follow us on Facebook at Canadian Galloway Association. All the best for 2019!

Chris Shaap, Director Esker Trail Farm, Drumbo, Ontario

Marie Blake, Vice President Suncrest Farms Galloways, Listowel, Ontario

Trevor O’Meara, Director Horsey-Enda, Colborne, Ontario

We raise black, red and dun Galloways with a focus on low maintenance, easy doing cattle that are suitable for grass finishing.

My partner Mark and I wanted to add a solid purebred foundation to my family’s grass finished commercial herd and Belted Galloways were the logical choice. We are looking forward to working with other breeders to continue maintaining and promoting this fantastic breed!

Janice and I chose Belted Galloway for our grass fed beef program for many reasons especially their easy going and hardy nature. When asked, “Why Belted Galloway?” I just say, “They are outstanding in their field... how much time do you have?”

Suncrest Farms Galloways in Listowel is where I call home with my husband Greg. I have been raising Galloways since my early years with my parents on the home farm here. I have three beautiful grown daughters and two very special grandchildren that help me continue in my love of the cattle. We have a small herd of 16 cows with blacks, duns, silver duns and belts.

Val Brooksbank, Executive Secretary Queensmere Farms, Caledon, Ontario

I am a sixth generation farmer and a breeder of purebred registered black belted Galloway cattle on 87 acres in the hills of Caledon. We market new breeding stock and are also working toward a “smart farming” Galloway/Angus commercial freezer beef farm to table program.

Ron Black, Secretary-Treasurer

Ward Marshall, Director Future Farms, Innisfail, Alberta

Ron has retired from CLRC but maintains his association with Canadian Galloways.

I have grown up on a farm and just started my first year of University at Lethbridge taking Agricultural Business. I recently have entered into the Galloway business. I have had great guidance and assistance from Jim King and Brian Robertson into the introduction to the growth of the breed. I look forward to meeting numerous breeders and the success within the breed and cattle industry.

Brian Robertson, Past President Robertson West Livestock, Clearwater County, Alberta I grew up near Phelpston, Ontario and my interest and introduction to Galloway cattle was influenced by my parents and grandfather. My wife Trisha and I along with our year and a half old son Wyatt raise purebred Galloway and Angus cattle on our farm in Clearwater County, Alberta. My family has been raising Galloway cattle for over 30 years primarily blacks and some reds.

Sarah Middleton, Director Calgary, Alberta Sarah is new to the board and raises belted and white Galloway cattle south of Calgary. Canadian Galloway Advance 2019

C GA Junior Members Share... Hello! My name is Abbey Cocking and I showed in the Haldimand County Beef Club for the first time this year. I am 15 years old and in grade 10. I had the opportunity to show a belted Galloway from my family farm. I have shown in the dairy club for six years and decided that this year I’d show both beef and dairy and let me tell you that was a challenge. I always enjoy going to as many of the shows as possible. I was at the fair every weekend and was surprised when I came in first in showmanship in my first ever show and third overall at my achievement day at Caledonia Fair. In November I headed to the big city to show at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Showmanship didn’t go as well as I would’ve liked but then I showed against two other Galloways in conformation and came fifth in that class. Showing beef was a great experience and I am definitely showing again next year! Thank you,

Abbey Cocking For my third year as a Waterloo 4-H member, I chose to exhibit my Galloway heifer, Dedmandale Everlea, as my 2018 project animal. Throughout the season, we prepared for the Royal Winter Fair by attending five fall fairs including Wellesley, New Hamburg, Drumbo, Rockton, and Erin. At New Hamburg Fall Fair (the Waterloo 4-H Beef Club achievement day), I received first in conformation and second in showmanship, then went on to receive Reserve Grand Champion Heifer. At the Galloway Show at Erin Fall Fair, I received second in conformation, and third in showmanship. My favourite part of the season was exhibiting Everlea at the Royal Winter Fair. I was able to see all of my hard work and dedication pay off when I came home with a fourth in the All Other Breeds Yearling Heifer class. Although this show season is over, I am looking forward to the years to come. I am hoping to exhibit Everlea’s 2019 calf and continue the tradition, as Everlea’s dam was my first 4-H heifer. I would like to thank both the Canadian Galloway and Eastern Canadian Galloway Association for your support. Thank you,

Chelsea Weiler This year I exhibited Dedmandale Eowyn as my 4-H project. We competed in four fall fairs prior to the Royal Winter Fair in November: Tavistock, New Hamburg, Rockton, and Erin. It was a good season overall and the highlight was definitely winning Grand Champion Heifer in the All Other Purebred Breeds class at the Royal. The most challenging aspect of this year’s show season was showing a smaller animal in some of the larger shows. Galloways aren’t a huge breed to begin with and my heifer is not a tall animal even for a Galloway. So when it comes to competing in multibreed shows, it can be a challenge to face off against some of the naturally taller and larger-framed animals. That being said, I do love the Galloway breed and how they look and perform, so as I head into my last year of 4-H I’m looking forward to one more show season with one more Galloway heifer. Thank you to both the Eastern Canadian Galloway Association and the Canadian Galloway Association for your continued support. Thank you,

Ruth Dedman Canadian Galloway Advance 2019

Katherine Sara Salter On February 12, 2018 we lost a Galloway breeder from both sides of the border. Kathy was involved with Galloways since the early 80’s alongside her husband Clayton and three children Susan, Marie (Greg) and Michael (Andrea). Kathy could always be seen helping in any way with the feeding, care and showing the Galloways that they loved so much. Suncrest Farms became well known with showing of cattle here in Canada and the United States. Home for Kathy was in Listowel, Ontario for the first 31 years of her married life and then her and Clayton moved the Galloway herd to Mack Creek, Missouri for the next 23 years till her health brought her home to the farm in Listowel. Over her years of farming Kathy had black, duns, silver dun, belties and white Galloway cattle to sell to the world. Alongside of making lifelong friends that became a huge part of our Galloway family in years to come. Kathy was also known for her baking and cooking skills, enjoyed by many at fairs and the kitchen table at home.Travel in her life almost always included her love of the Galloways, with trips to Europe, the United States and Western Canada. Her family was very much involved in her life with Galloways, even with her sister Suzanne Chalmers starting her own herd Silver Sun with us here. Grandma as she became known to us in later years loved spending time with her eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Kathy love to quilt and in better time loved to make wooden creatures for the outdoors. The flower beds around the home were her pride and joy, always working in them.

Robert George Irvine October 26, 1926 - January 1, 2019 Bob was born on the family farm in North Easthope, also the birthplace of his mother, that was to be his home for the next 90 years. A son of the late George and Clara (Weiss) Irvine. His life partner, Marjorie, who he married on June 19, 1954, predeceased him on November 20, 2013. They began their farm career milking pedigree Ayrshire dairy cattle. However, the tight constraints of twice daily milking “being tied to the tail of a dairy cow was not the lifestyle I had in mind.” This and perhaps the often expressed philosophy of “when everyone else is headed west, you go east” led to the exploration of alternate farming options. Always proud of his Scottish heritage it was only natural that another Scottish breed came to his attention, the Galloway. Sourcing a bull from Gusty Ridge Galloways at Sutton West, Ontario in 1962, the Irvines went on to build an internationally recognized herd of award winning Galloway cattle. Bob was a driving force in the establishment of the Eastern Canadian Galloway Association in 1967. Working together with the Canadian Galloway Association he tirelessly promoted the preservation and improvement of his chosen breed. At herd dispersal in 2013, it was noted that Avon Acres (black) and Heatherdale (dark dun and Bob’s favourite silver duns) cattle had been sold across North America, as well as into Scotland, England and Germany. A further testament to his keen stockman’s eye came when selected to judge the Galloway show at Agribition in Regina, Canada’s premier beef cattle show event. Today’s agriculture highlights environmental and soil health regeneration as progressive new ideas. Bob led the way years ago transitioning from row cropping to a perennial pasture system that had his fields productive and unbroken for over 40 years. Community support was demonstrated through involvement with local sports teams and associations, school boards, his Masonic lodge, scouting, 4-H and an active church life. The publication, “ The Dust and the Dew” is a collection of Bob’s poetry that illustrates the thoughts and values of this “Farmer Poet.” Robert G. Irvine, proud of his family, his community and his country, a mentor and friend, a true gentleman farmer. Bob is survived by his family, Dale Weicker, Heather and Preston Gurd, his son Robert J. Irvine, seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Elizabeth Joan (Carleton) Horvey December 3, 1929 - October 22, 2018 Joan grew up in Cabri, SK, where she went to school and Sunday School. She married Gordon Johan Horvey on November 13, 1948. Her family of six was raised on the family farm, 10 miles East of Cabri; five boys, one girl; Russel, Wesley, Gary, Bertrum, Katherine and Lyndon. Joan moved back into Cabri the fall of 2001, after Gordon passed away earlier that year, January 2, 2001. She was always active in the community. Following Joan’s passing, many commented how much she will be missed in the community. She was very active in the Sask. Galloway Association; acting as President from 1986-1992, Secretary from 1993-2000 and Director from 1985-2005. She also helped publish and distribute the Sask. Galloway Association’s magazine, Galloway Galaxy, from the early 1960’s to 1982 and acted as the magazine coordinator for the Canadian Galloway Association’s Galloway Advance from 1982 to 1987. Joan and her family showed Galloway cattle at the Swift Current Frontier Days, starting in 1959; as well as in North Battleford, Lloydminster, Prince Albert, the Calgary Stampede, the Toronto Royal Winter Fair and the Regina Agribition. Both Joan and Gordon continued to attend the Agribition shows in the years that followed. Gordon until 1999, the year before his passing and Joan until 2010, the last year of a Galloway Show at Agribition. Joan was also very active in her local community. From School boards and the Scandia Lutheran Church, to history book committees and the Cabri & District Museum, she never seemed to slow down. One could always count on her to bring her integrity and strong work ethic to everything she did. She also loved to dress up and she put together many dressup family parades at the farm. Joan loved to play cards, especially with her grandchildren. She particularly enjoyed playing bridge in her senior years. All of Joan’s family and friends are happy that she was able to live an active life, living on her own right to her passing. Her family wants to thank all those that have been so kind, thoughtful and caring.

Galloway Cattle Society of UK and Ireland 2018 Report Every year has something memorable about the last 12 months that has passed and this year - it was the weather. In the UK, the weather was such a contrast to 2017, as the 2017 summer was cold and wet, 2018 was warm and hot. Overall this summer was provisionally the equal warmest on record for the UK, sunshine totals were 142% of average in June, 138% of average in July, and 90% of average in August and for the majority of the UK only had 48% of average rainfall. For some the rain came at the right time, for some, it was a worrying time and we now know many of our farmers did not get enough fodder or crop to last the winter. We also know from reports from the World Congress, many of you are experiencing the same problems and we hope you have had some rain. Talking about the World Congress, I hear all the delegates had a great time and I know our three young men would like to thank everyone who made them so welcome. Callum, Iain and Fraser had a wonderful time and they learned so much. As a result, Callum enjoyed his time abroad so much he secured a job in New Zealand working with Belties. The Organising Committee must be thanked for putting on a wide and varied programme.

Canadian Galloway Advance 2019 


Galloway in the heart of Europe The Czech Beef Breeders Association ( is the organization, which is authorized by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic to co-ordinate and organize a selection program for all beef breeds reared in the Czech Republic. Since it was established in 1990, the CSCHMS’ main objectives are especially: performance recording, evaluation of animals, selection of young bulls for breeding at performance test stations (both for insemination and natural services bulls), estimation of breeding values (with assistance of Agricultural Research Institute in Prague), keeping of a Herd-Books, the promotion of beef cattle (shows, seminars), etc. The CSCHMS operates all over the Czech Republic and associates more than 1.000 breeders of all beef breeds (25 in these days) including Galloway. Within the CSCHMS, breeders’ clubs for particular breeds have been established. These breeders’ clubs are independent in coordinating the breeding aims and tools of a particular breed - they assign the selection program, standard of breeds and all other matters regarding their breed. The Galloway club The Galloway club was established in 1991 with the import of the first animals from the Germany and Austria. Gradually the breed was expanded - mostly to the mountain regions of the Czech Republic (South Bohemia and North Moravia). By establishing a HerdBook and the establishment of the Breeders Club Galloway, the breeding work in our country reached a high level. This is documented by the results achieved in the performance recording. The first appreciation of our breeders’ work was an invitation to the Congress of the World Galloway Association in 1998. The Breeds of Galloway The breeds of Galloway are situated in the middle and higher areas throughout the Czech Republic. Breeders use their excellent features such as durability, longevity and excellent meat flavour. Whole black and white park colour dominates. In recent years, breeders have also found the belted, dun and riggit variety. Their numbers are on the rise but most breeds, however, still remain with the original black colour.

The rearing of Galloway is not usually the main source of breeder’s income, but it is a complement to another type of business. Very often it´s kept together with horses or sheep, the animals tolerate each other very well. From an economic point of view, breeders are increasingly thinking about how to monetize this tasteful meat.The result is an increasing number of small farms. The animals are brought from slaughterhouses, processed and offered to end customers directly from the farm.This sales method strengthens the relationship between the farmer and the customer and increases the awareness of this breed and the environmentally friendly way of farming. However, due to the number of animals kept in the Czech Republic, it is not possible to create a network of Galloway meat shops, which is why this meat is sold locally directly by farmers. Vision and Direction of breeding Galloway There are references to the fact that Galloway should go along like other beef breeds, increase harness and height and thereby commercialize this beef breed. These pressures are mostly rejected by breeders and Galloway still holds the role of an extensive breed in the Czech Republic. Minimum limits are set for yearling animals (breeding bull) height114 cm, weight 290 kg and for heifers 110 cm and 242 kg. Data 2017/Published 2018
