The Buelingo is a modern American composite breed of belted beef cattle. It was created in North Dakota, in the United States, in the 1970s, and is named for one of the breeders, Russ Bueling. The hybridisation started from animals of Angus and Shorthorn type, which were crossed with Limousin and a Dutch Belted bull to fix the gene for belting; this was purely for appearance.[1]:68 Chianina blood was later added to improve the composite breed.[1]:68 In 1989 a breed society, the Buelingo Beef Cattle Society, was started.[1]:68

The breed is noted for the following;

Excellent quality and lean marbling

Good maternal characteristics

Fertility

Docility

Small Calving weights
