Minto Galloways prove to be champions once more

Minto Galloways at Capital Region Farmers MarketWe like to give credit where credit is due. And this time around, Minto Galloways have proven to be champions once again at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. With four awards, including Grand Champion Female Galloway, we couldn’t be more proud. Other awards included Junior & Senior female Champion Galloway; Reserve Champion Junior Galloway Bull; and Reserve Champion Belted Female Galloway. Minto Galloways was established close to thirty years ago just north of Canberra off the Barton Highway. They sell pure, full-blood Galloway. Recognised as one of the fullest flavoured, juiciest and most tender meats, Galloway is one of Australia’s best kept secrets. As consistent winners of awards at Regional and Royal Shows, we’re very proud to have them as a regular stallholder at the Market. We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to Minto Galloways for their tremendous win.

Galloway cattle added to Slow Food Ark of Taste – October 2013

Great news for regular stallholders and Galloway cattle breeders, Minto Galloways. Galloway cattle has just been inducted into the Slow Food International Ark of Taste.  The Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity is about preserving agricultural and horticultural biodiversity, to promote quality, taste and small-scale artisanal products and to preserve critically endangered foods and breeds of animals. For centuries Galloway cattle have been known for their superb beef quality. They efficiently convert grass on non-arable country into high quality, well-marbled, healthy meat. The meat is low in fat, high in beneficial fatty acids and has an excellent Omega 6:3 ratio. Greg Stuart from Minto Galloways is quite excited about the announcement and says it took quite a long time to achieve. “We had to meet the requirements of an Australian review committee and then an international review committee. The induction is based on a couple of things, exceptional taste, pure or in Australian terminology full blood cattle, and a risk of loss of those pure genetics.” Greg says much of the data was based on Minto Galloways cattle. Well done Minto Galloways!

Minto Galloways just keep scoring awards – May 2013

In other awards news, Minto Galloways have again found themselves in the winner’s circle at the recent Royal Bathurst Show. They took some stock to the show and won Grand Champion Bull and Grand Champion female which then gave them Supreme Galloway exhibit. They won Champion Junior Female and Reserve Champion Senior Female Belted Galloway, and were also awarded the most successful Belted Galloway exhibitor medallion. But the most satisfying win for them was coming second in the all breed’s interbreed Cow and Calf competition. Their products can be found at the market each week. A big congratulations Chris & Greg!
