Lincoln Red cattle have been imported into Lincoln red cattle in a pasture.Australia from the United Kingdom since the early 1900s. The Australian Society was formed in 1971 at which time there were a limited number of purebred Lincoln Red cattle of both sexes in Australia. This nucleus has been expanded by natural mating, artificial insemination using overseas sires and the introduction of a grading-up program.


Lincoln Reds are an efficient, early maturing breed. They offer minimum care, are easy calvers and are not prone to sunburn or eye cancer.


The breed is a deep red color, may be horned or polled and is reasonably large-framed with a rapid growth rate.
