About

Randall Linebacks are a rare breed of cattle which originated in Vermont and are steadily gaining popularity. Here you will find photos and stories about my own Randall Linebacks, as well as my experiences on New England dairy farms.

(The name is a coincidence; historic Randall Farms and the Randall Lineback breed bear no known connection.)
