THE RANDALL LINEBACK BREED ASSOCIATION
Our Mission IS: to Preserve, Protect, and Promote the Randall Lineback cattle breed, a unique American breed, which is currently threatened with extinction.
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 currently threatened with extinction. The history of this breed 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.
The Randall Lineback breed 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 American Livestock Breeds Conservancy has listed The Randall Lineback as a "critically endangered" breed.
