Scottish Highlands are considered a heritage breed, which means they are one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the world. Like many heritage breeds, Highlands are the product of generations of natural selection under harsh conditions. Many of those desirable traits continue to be the focus of our breeding and selection program, such as calving ease, temperament, and ability to thrive in a wide range of temperatures and pasture conditions.
Highlands come in a wide range of colors including red, white, brindle, yellow, black, dun and silver. They have a double layer hair coat that keeps them protected in cold weather with minimal excess fat.
Our first three Highland cows joined the farm in 2016 as companions and protectors for our goats. As they share pasture with small animals, temperament is a key quality for us. All of our mommas and bulls love to be brushed and our babies are halter trained.
