Highland Cows

Highland Cow,s

The Highlander is one of the oldest and hardiest native breed of cattle.They are unique amongst British breeds because they've remained virtually unchanged since pedigree records began.The exact origins of Highland cattle are unknown but references date back to the 13th century.

Highlanders are exceptionally hardy and have survived the often harsh highland climate through the centuries .The natural free-ranging abilities of Highlanders coupled with unassisted calvings in all conditions as well as a rich milk, high in butter fat make the Highland cow an ideal mother.

Highland beef is slow maturing making it a premium beef which is lean,well marbled with low cholesterol levels whilst remaining rich in protein and flavour's a result of modern record keeping ,full traceability from birth to plate can be assured.This is an ever increasing requirement of todays consumer.
