Welcome to the new Randall Lineback Breed Association web- site! The Randall Lineback Breed Association is a not-for-profit organization formed in 2005 to "Preserve, Protect and Promote" this unique American breed which is threatened with extinction. Its history is the history of America, reaching back almost four hundred years into the dawn of New England. These cattle are a living window into America's past.

Today's Randall Lineback breed of cattle is the last survivor of the once numerous "all-purpose" local landrace breeds of cattle that became popular throughout New England beginning in the late 1600s. These landrace breeds of cattle produced the milk, provided the meat, and did the heavy agricultural work of New England for hundreds of years.The breed has been listed "critically endangered" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. The Randall Linebacks have recently been named Vermont's first "State Heritage Breed".
