ABOUT

Lakenvelder Sign
WHAT'S IN A NAME?

THE HISTORY

Did you know, the word Läkenvelder has two meanings? In Dutch, it translates to the “belted cow,” and in German, it translates to a shadow on a sheet, which they use to describe a type of chicken. Both animals have the same markings, which include a white belt around the mid-section. The Läkenvelder cow is a rare breed of cattle, but in the Texas Hill Country you can spot them on quite a few ranches. Here they are known as a Belted Galloway.
