Highland Cattle

Highland cattle are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long wavy coats. The Highland cattle breed has lived for centuries in the rugged remote Scottish Highlands. The extremely harsh conditions created a process of natural selection, where only the fittest and most adaptable animals survived to carry on the breed. The first recorded importation into the United States occurred in the late 1890s when western cattlemen recognized the need to improve the hardiness of their herds. The American Highland Cattle Association (AHCA) registry was formed in 1948. Highland cattle fit into a variety of operations from the small farm to large commercial beef operations. Highland beef is a premium product, second to none in flavor and health benefits.

This moderate framed breed is an excellent browser.  Generally Highland Cows are an optimal choice for smaller acreages or non-commercial beef raising enterprises.  They are slower growing and very efficient eaters on marginal pastures.  Their quiet temperaments and natural ability for calving ease make these cows easy keepers.

Highland Beef is known to be some of the best tasting beef in the world. Contact the Ranch for more information and availability.
