Scottish Highlander

Scottish Highlander (Highland Cattle). They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver or dun.

The Scottish Highlander originated in the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD. They are raised primarily for their meat.

They are a hardy breed due to their native environment. This results in long hair, giving the breed its ability to overwinter. However, this has the consequences of a lack of heat tolerance.

Bulls can weigh up to 800 kilograms (1,800 pounds) and cows up to 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds). Their milk generally has a very high butterfat content, and their meat, regarded as of the highest quality, is gaining mainstream acceptance as it is low in cholesterol.
