The Lowline Angus were bred in Australia from Aberdeen Angus cattle, today the breed is bred in Australia, Canada, England, America, Switzerland. Lowline angus are in Germany not a registered breed. Breeding conditions were set in Australia by the Australian Lowline Cattle Association and incorporated into the Canadian Lowline Cattle Association - both associations run a herdbook.

The Canadian Lowline Angus are the smallest cattle breed, but they are not affected by dwarfism. They are genetically polled and reach only about 60% of the normal Aberdeen Angus breed, which is in cows a hip height of about 100 cm with an average weight of 320 kg, in bulls about 110 cm with an average weight of 400 kg. The calves have a birth weight of 18 - 24 kg. The color should be pure black, even completely red cattle are allowed in the Canadian herdbook, but they must be specially marked.
