The Randall Lineback, also known as the Randall, is a breed of cattle originating from Bennington County, Vermont in the northeastern United States. It is a triple-purpose breed that was reared for milk, beef, and draft work and is thought to have originated from cattle of British, Dutch, and French origin. The breed was kept largely isolated from other breeds by the Randall family from 1912 until 1985 when it was dispersed, with only six bulls and nine cows being saved for conservation. A breed society was formed in 2005, and in 2022, its conservation status was listed as critical by The Livestock Conservancy. Randalls are medium in size, with cows weighing 600-1100 lbs and bulls weighing 1000-1800 lbs. They have a "Color-sided" pattern of black markings on a white base. They are adaptable to low-input farming systems and are suited to the New England climate. The breed was historically used as dairy, meat, and draft animals.
