The Highland Breed

Scotch Highland Cattle evolved in ancient times in Northern Scotland and have been tended by man for centuries, with written records dating back to the 1700’s. Highland Cattle are characterized by elegant horns and a long, thick double layer of hair, ranging in color from black to dun, to silver to white, or shades of red from yellow to mahogany. Highland Cattle were shaped by their harsh environment into the moderate-sized, hardy, efficient grazers we have today. For many centuries Highland Beef has been the beef of preference for the Royal dining tables, with the Queen of England maintaining her own herd of “Grande Olde Breed” at Balmoral Castle.
