BRITISH WHITE CATTLE SOCIETY AUSTRALIA
The British White Cattle Society was formed in Australia in 1983 by a group of keen cattle people determined to promote this ancient breed in Australia. The Society was incorporated in the early 1990s to ensure it operates on sound business principles.
Today the Society remains comparatively small but its members are a dedicated group committed to the breed’s success. Read more about the Society.
The society meets twice each year to conduct its formal business and to enable its members to network. Find out more in our news feed.

What is a British White
The British White is considered as a rare breed and one of the oldest breeds of cattle native to Britain, bought to Australia in the 1950s. They are described as follows:
- White coat on blue or dark pigmented skin
- Black points, viz muzzle, nose, ears and eyelids
- Teats of a cow, rudimentary teats of bulls
- Legs with a splash of colour or spots of colour on the front of each fetlock
- Black hooves and a black tongue is desirable
Some cattle appear in the breed with red points but still retain the foregoing makings and The Society makes no distinction on colour other than noting the red pointed animals.
