Highland Cattle

Our homestead has had hairy cows… February 2018 Update:  We have sold our entire herd of Scottish Highland Cattle.  We miss them but know that we were not doing them any favors by keeping them overstocked.  If we can improve our pastures over the next few years and if we determine that we want to add cattle back to our farm, we will chose this breed again.

May 2017 UPDATE:  Our enthusiasm for these unique cattle has lead us to an overstocked situation.  We have sadly reached the point of needing to sell most or potentially all of our fold. 

Visit the Heartland Highland Cattle Association for more information.

    We got ice for Christmas this year.  It arrived a couple of days early but it’s here!  While the crystalline landscape is beautiful, it has a ominous crunch to it also.  The dogs were having […]
