The Randall Cattle Registry, Inc.
The Official Website of Randall Cattle
When Cynthia Creech rescued the Randall herd from extinction in 1987, nearly all of the surviving Randalls came to live on her farm in Jefferson City, TN, named "Artemis Farm". Details of those days, and the rescue, can be found on her website, here.
On these pages are photos of the cattle, taken by Cynthia, during those early days of the Randall recovery. Some of the animals depicted had lived on the Randall farm prior to 1985, and others are first and second generation from those original "founder" animals. Many of these original animals are no longer with us.

"Alice" is a daughter of
"Clarice", born in 1991, and her 1993 heifer calf "Sarah"
"Amos" went to a breeder in CT, then on to Canada. He is the sire of "Red Randall", the first animal to express the resessive red color gene since the herd
was on the Randall farm

Another view of "Bart". Bart is important to the herd as his use reduces a bottleneck created by the over-representation of the "Old Bull". Bart is gone but his semen has been collected for future conservation matings
