Though the Belted Cow Company is based in Maine, the company name comes from the founder’s college days in Vermont, where cows typically outnumbered people. One breed – the Belted Galloway – stood out. Also known as “Oreo cows” for their resemblance to the popular cookie, Belted Galloways are a hearty Scottish breed with a striking white belt around the middle. When you come upon them, you can’t help but do a double take.
The Belted Cow Company started with a goal of creating belt designs with this same look-twice appeal and rugged quality. Our name and cow logo reflect our attitude toward designs and product development – they will always offer products that let our customers stand out from the herd.
