The Kazakh whiteheaded cattle (Russian: Kaзaxcкaя бeлoгoлoвaя, Kazakhskaya belogolovaya) is a beef cattle breed from Kazakhstan and Russia. The breed was developed between 1930 and 1950 on state farms in the Kazakh republic and the Lower Volga by crossing Hereford cattle with local Kazakh and Kalmyk (cattle).[1] The breed resembles the Hereford in colour and conformation while incorporating the locals breeds' hardiness.

Cows weigh 500 to 700 kg, bulls 800 to 1000 kg.
