Steve grew up on a dairy farm and between us we have raised horses, dairy goats, chickens, turkeys, emus and show dogs. One day Steve noticed someone selling Scottish Highlands, an unusual breed of cattle. The more we researched the breed the more we liked them. We decided purchasing one or two Highlands was a good idea. Well, obviously Highlands are like potato chips, you can't have just one or two. We now average over fifty head in our Scottish Highland fold.
A group of Highlands is called a "fold" not a herd. This breed is very docile, intelligent, excellent foragers and are recognizable by their horns and long hairy coat. Because of their coat they do very well in the Iowa winters only needing protection from the winter winds. It has been noticed that Highlands do not increase their feed intake until the temperature drops to -18 degrees F, other breeds increase their intake at 32 degrees F. In the hot weather they need shade and appreciate a stream or pond to cool off. Highlands have a great longevity, they've been known to calve at 20 years. Because our cattle are not treated with hormones or an antibiotic regimen this grass fed and grass finished beef is a much healthier meat. A study conducted by the Scottish Agricultural College showed that Highland beef is significantly (about 40%) lower in fat and cholesterol. It contains more protein and iron than other beefs.
Our Highland fold averages well over fifty and we market this amazingly healthy and tasty beef several ways. You can order by sending me an email me to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are able to ship within the continental United States.
