1. Excellent Temperament
Highlands are renowned for their friendly nature, often approaching people for attention!
2. Premium Beef
Highland beef is rated as premium beef due to it’s fine texture, well-marbled succulent flavor, and healthy aspects. It is high in iron and 40% lower in fat & cholesterol than even chicken!
3. Highly Adaptable Foragers
Highlands are fantastic scavengers; they will eat almost anything if it has food value, including weeds, poison ivy, tree leaves. etc. They can thrive in poor pastures that other cattle could not survive on.
Highlands can live and breed longer than other breeds. They are hardy, robust, and independent birthers, rarely requiring any assistance. They are well known to be excellent mothers.
5. They’re GORGEOUS!
These beautiful cows are popular due to their cute appearance with long, shaggy hair and curved horns. However, the thick undercoats help them survive tough Scottish winters, and the longer hair keeps the rain and snow off. Their enviable long eyelashes protect them from hail, rain, wind and insects. And those sometimes intimidating horns are used to rake the ground to find food in the snow.
