Colour - All Australian Lowline are black. A little white is not uncommon and should not disqualify so long as it is restricted to the area of the scrotum or the udder. This white patch should not extend further forward than half way between the udder/scrotum and the navel, on the underbelly only.
Horns - All Australian Lowline cattle are naturally polled (no horns).
Conformation - Should be consistent with that applying to all British beef breeds of cattle, male and female.
Skin - The skin should always be in good condition, soft and mellow. Hair should be plentiful and evenly distributed, but noting the normal differences expected in areas of extreme cold and heat.
Weight and Size - Judgment should be based on conformation, health and condition, rather than size. Mature bulls measure about 110cm at the hip and mature females, 100cm. It is acceptable that some animals will exceed those limits.
Fertility - There should be evidence of longevity. Bulls, masculine in appearance, virile and with strong libido. Cows, feminine in appearance with breeding history of regular calving.
Sheath - Retracted prepuce. Penis angle approx 25 degrees from the horizontal.
Udder and Teats - Balanced and well attached.
Disposition -Docility should be a feature.
Legs and Feet - Sound feet and joints. Squarely set.
