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

Florida Cracker cattle are one of the rarest and oldestrnbreeds of cattle in the United States. They descended from Spanish stockrnimported to the continent in the sixteenth century. Combination of the new lawsrnabout free-foaming livestock and the introduction of larger meat cattle breedsrnled to the rapid decline of the Florida Cracker cattle after 1949. The breed isrnstill listed as ‘critical’ by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy,rndespite the continued work of the Florida state government and a breedrnassociation. And the breed is listed on Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste.
