But, I am considering raising a few head of Scottish Highland cattle. Anyone here doing that? Would like to get into a discussion on the topic off line via email, etc.

Thanks,

I recently decided to raise Scottish Highland Cattle and now know some large breeders in my area that would be willing to answer your questions if I can't. In general, Highland Cattle are a hardy breed that will do an amazing job at brush clean-up. They are easy calvers with birthweights about 68lbs. The average mature weights are: Cow-1100 to 1300 lbs Bull 1500-2000.
Heifers are usually bred to calve at 3 years old because Highlands are a little later maturing.
They come in 7 colors: black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver, and Parti (patches of color, Only Females can be registered).

The link is to the NWHCA website and It has a link page that will take you to the American Highland Cattle Association and the Regional Association nearest you.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

That is not off topic, unless you feel the political rantings on this site are what the topic is about. I have an article on Scottish Highland cattle somewhere. I will try to find it and get back to you. Possibly by email, so I dont have to wade through these ranting and ravings on flags, english, spanish etc. Dont get me wrong, I think they need to be discussed, I just dont feel this is the forum for it.
