About Florida Cracker CattleAbout Florida Cracker Cattle



Florida Cracker (also known as Florida Scrub or Cracker cow) are a beef cattle breed developed in Florida, US. They are mainly used for meat production and named for the Florida Cracker culture in which they were kept. The Florida Cracker cattle are very closely related to Pineywoods cattle. Other related cattle breeds include Corriente and Texas Longhorn cattle.

Florida Cracker cattle are one of the rarest and oldest breeds of cattle in the United States. They descended from Spanish stock imported to the continent in the sixteenth century. Combination of the new laws about free-foaming livestock and the introduction of larger meat cattle breeds led to the rapid decline of the Florida Cracker cattle after 1949. The breed is still listed as ‘critical’ by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, despite the continued work of the Florida state government and a breed association. And the breed is listed on Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste.

They are smaller sized cattle and come in many colors. They can be dappled-grey/blue, dappled-brown, solid brown, solid white, white with brown spots, white with black spots, all black or in some cases a pure golden palomino. Both cows and bulls usually have curved horns, and some animals are also polled.
