B» Ttit Butler. THE GALLOWAY is another Scotch breed of black hornless beef cattle which, to the aver age person, appears to resemble quite closely the Polled Angus. They have the same type of short legs, and are close to the ground, but carry a heavier coat of hair, especially in winter, which is more inclined to curl. The body is longer and the ribs somewhat flatter, giving a less round and compact appearance. The head is less pointed or peaked at the poll, and the ears are set rather far back and covered with long hair. Breadth between the eyes and shortness from eyes to muzzle are characteristic. In the hind quarters, good length of rump and heavy, well-fleshed low er thighs are strong points. As stated, the color Is black, but a brownish or reddish tinge is not un common nor objectionable, but white or other color Is a disqualification. The Galloways are regarded as re markably hardy, but this quality ap plies more especially to the condi tions of a cold climate. We know of no evidence to show that they will not prove as hardy In a Southern cli mate, but their native home and long coat of fine, curly hair, Indicates an adaptation to a cold climate. The breed Is very prepotent, trans mitting their characteristics to their offspring to a high degree, thus mak ing them valuable for crossing on other breeds and the native cattle. The famous blue-grays produced bv crossing Shorthorn bulls on Gallo way cows, take a high rank In the English beef markets. The qualify of Onlloway meat Is of a high order and the per cent of dressed carcass to live weight large, often reaching from 6ft to 65 per cent. In size the Galloway Is small er than the Shorthorn and Hereford and probably also somewhat smaller than the Angus. In milk production the breed has no special quality, being strictly a beef breed; but the cowb furnish am ple milk for the rearing of their calves. The points of the Galloway which have been criticised, or which ma' be regarded as their weakness, are a lack of spring and fullness of rib, slackness of hack, and roughness a' lail-head. They have also been ac cused of not responding so promptly to liberal feeding as the other beef breeds. These criticisms do not ap ply to the same extent to the modern Galloways produced at the present time by the best breeders, as to the breed in years gone by, but even yet. the Galloway probably does not ma ture as early or fatten as rapidly dur ing early life as the Shorthorns, Herefords and Polled Angus. THE SUSSEX. The Sussex is an English breed of red, horned, beef cattle. They are natives of the south of Engl. id. where the grazing is good. They have never been largely imported or A TYPICAL GALLOWAY. Courtcuy R. W. Brown bred la tbls coutry, but possess & high order of merit as beef cattle comparing favorably with the olhe large beef breeds. The color Is solid red, of rather a deep shade; the horns are rather long and large, and may Incline downwards. The nose Is flesh-colored In form, they are essentially of the beef type, being blocky, with well sprung ribs and large bodies. The rump Is long and broad and thighs thick and beefy. In size the Sussex compare favor ably with the Shorthorn and Here fords, the latter of which they re semble somewhat, except in me at> 8ence of the white color. Being strictly a beef breed, the milking qualities are of a low order, especial ly as to quantity. As crossers on native stock and In early-maturing qualities, the Sussex take high rank. Compared with Devons, the Sussex are larger and more of the beef or blocky, fleshy type, give less milk and have larger horns, and shorter or thicker necks.
