Broadus family line

Pineywoods -- the Broadus Line

Broadus cattle are from the southern portion of the range. These tend to be short and blocky with a number of guineas. Several were nearly white, and included a “white face” pattern similar to Hereford cattle. Wyatt Broadus always insisted that there were no Pineywoods cattle purer than his family line. 

Broadus cattle are mostly medium-sized and blocky.  At least some are guinea, others tend toward that without being as small as guineas.  Horns are intermediate, being neither very long nor very short, and are characteristically twisted up and out.  Colors include red, black, brown, brindle, and yellow.  Many are colorsided or linebacked.  A few have white faces. Originally, the herd contained a few polled and scurred cattle, though these are now all gone.
