Florida Scrub Cattle are cattle of primarily Iberian origin that were developed largely through natural selection In Florida. They once composed the entire cattle population of Florida but now have been reduced to a population of approximately 340 breeding age animals. Efforts are being made to preserve the small surviving population of Florida Scrub Cattle at four locations owned by the state of Florida and in several privately owned herds. The current animals descend from four geographically diverse sources maintained separately until recent years.
