Scottish Highland Cattle
We breed AHCA registered Scottish Highland Cattle.
Registered Calf: $2,000 - $4,000
The double hair coat (long, coarse outer layer and soft wooly inner layer) is one of the most notable differences between Highlands and other breeds. The coat reduces the need for expensive barns and shelters. Highlands tend to be docile and calm and do not stress easily. They are easy to work with despite their long horns. The horns are used primarily for knocking down the brush to graze, predator control, and scratching. Horns on females are generally upswept and finer textured than those on the males. Male horns are more forward-pointing and massive. Highland cows are noted for being highly devoted and protective mothers. They are noted for calving ease. Due to small calf size (60-70 pounds), calving difficulty is less common. Cows may produce into their late teens, reducing the need for frequent herd replacement. Highland cows will average 900-1200 pounds when mature. Bulls will average from 1500-1800 pounds, depending on forage conditions.
Add me to the waiting list...
When a calf is born I will notify first on the waiting list. If they pass or don't respond within 24 hours, I will move down the list. Once I have received a 50% non-refundable deposit, the calf is reserved for you. If no deposit is received, they will be listed to the general public.
Please note, deposits are non-refundable.
