"WWH Apple Allen MacKay" (AHCA Reg. # 59249)
SOLD MAY 2020 TO A MICHIGAN FOLD:
son of Apple Hill's Basil Reg. # 55567 and our Agnes Gail Reg. #45811
A most extraordinary Highland Bull calf....at only 10 months looking good!
Scottish Highland cattle were on the endangered list of becoming extinct 30+ years ago. However, more than 50,000 cows and bulls have been registered in the United States in the American Highland Cattle Association to date. Their heritage is one of hardiness and ease of calving. We chose to raise HIGHLANDS for that reason. They are to cattle what Coopworths are to sheep!
Their 'hair' is also useful for spinning exotic coarse yarns and felting uniquely useful matts and blankets - and an occasional hat.
HIGHLAND CATTLE GENETICS
*NOTE: We have decided to reduce our fold and keep only our one Highland 'coo'...my "Pinky". We will pasture Highland steers here in the spring and fall for our friends at Loch-Moore Farms and we will always support and promote Scottish Highlands as a worthy breed--a heritage breed that should be appropriately bred and maintained for their hardiness, forage efficacy, and genetic diversity...we ask please that no one promote the miniaturization of this magnificent cattle breed!
