We pride ourselves on raising docile, friendly, miniature cattle. We do it for the sheer pleasure of it. Our cattle are Miniature White Galloways, an extremely docile breed. Their docility is one of the many reasons our cattle have become highly sought after by first-time livestock owners.
Our miniature cattle are handled in the paddock daily, many from the day they are born. Most are halter trained (will walk with you on a lead) and will come when called. In fact, a few of our miniature cattle will queue up in the paddock to be brushed and groomed.
1. Miniature cattle as gentle paddock pets (for the joy of owning such beautiful animals).
2. Miniature cattle for paddock patrol (quiet lawn mowers for the small acreage owner).
3. Miniature cattle for paddock pals for horses, (alpacas and other animals).
4. Miniature purebred and full blood cattle for the show ring and breeding.
1. We will not have any miniature cattle for sale until late 2017.
In preparation for the big move south, we did not put our whole herd into calf for two years. The calves are only just starting to come now - May 2017.
We love the calf photos from all our happy new owners, please keep them coming (they are also very popular on our facebook page).

Selling cattle is not our priority. Our number one priority is to find all the cattle we breed good homes. Miniature cattle breeding is a hobby for us, not a big money-making venture. Despite the fact that we spend a lot of time and money on each and every member of our herd, we breed our Miniature White Galloway cattle for the sheer pleasure of it. We also enjoy promoting these beautiful little cattle.
Where possible, it is better for you and the cattle if you can purchase miniature cattle local to you.
When we do sell our miniature cattle, we sell them in pairs (or ensure that they are going to join a herd). Cattle are herd animals and should not be in a paddock alone.
We do not sell our miniature cattle unless we are 100% confident they are going to a place where they will be well looked after. Well looked after and given a 'fair go'. See Fair Go Farms for details.
GOLD CREEK Kincaide was the third of our gentle full blood bulls to be sold well before they were even weaned. These small bulls are in demand - they are all performing well for their new owners.
Our miniature cattle can be hand fed, haltered, brushed, petted, kissed and loved to bits - all in the paddock. We are more than happy to spend time with you, before and after you take one of our treasured herd to your home, to help you start this bonding process. In fact, if you take one of our little mates home, you will find our ongoing support is second to none.
Our extra small, seriously quiet miniature cattle sometimes cost a little more but more often than not they don't! For Tips of prices.
Our miniature cattle are specifically bred and trained to make it easy for the first-time livestock owners to enjoy owning miniature cattle from day one - this takes time, patience, skill and experience. Purchasing a miniature as a pet is usually a more expensive option initially, but that little bit extra more than pays for itself over time.
Prices will vary depending on the characteristics of the individual miniature, the number and the combination of cattle you purchase from us. We happily subsidise the cost of our highly trained therapy cattle to ensure that these little wonders can go where they are needed most.
We sell well bred, extremely docile, miniature cattle that are looking to live out their lives as paddock pets. They are all sold with ongoing support and back up - the kind that our first-time livestock owners need to feel confident and happy.
Go to FAQ page for general information on prices (there are ballpark figures to give you an idea).
You will need to provide us with your home phone number if you wish to discuss the price of any particular animal.
Our miniature cattle are not withdrawn from sale until we have a holding deposit - no exceptions.
Buyers have 48 hours from the day of inspection to make a deposit. Unfortunately, limited numbers and incredible demand have made this very necessary. Buyers also need to be aware that, although we can give people very individual attention, it would be unusual for us to be communicating with just one interested party at any one time. The 48-hour deadline is to protect you from disappointment - not us. Sadly, there are always more buyers than there are Miniature White Galloway cattle for sale.
We will hold cattle for a maximum of 21 days from the payment of a deposit - unless other arrangements are made at the time of sale. Payment in full is made on or before pickup or delivery takes place during that three-week period.
