Vintage Hill Farm – Highland Cattle
Highlands of Vintage Hill
Highland cattle are an ancient breed of beef cattle from the rugged hillsides of Scotland. Known for their shaggy coats and docile dispositions, they are an inspiring example of how what was once old makes perfect sense in this modern world. Fans of Highland cattle vary from those wanting to add some hardy characteristics to their crossbreeding program to serious preservationists of the breed who just want to look at them. In this age of "where does your food come from?" they are very popular among grass fed beef programs. Because their genetics are quite unrelated to other cattle breeds, the hybrid vigor factor of Highland crosses is unparalleled.
Vintage Hill specializes in preserving traditional breed character, structural correctness and disposition in our Highland cattle. We want our Highlands to look like Highlands. When starting out we selected cows from direct imported parents and grandparents in their entire pedigree. Then thru AI and embryo transplant have crossed those cows with imported bulls, many which have been deceased 30 or more years. The interesting fact about these genetics? Back then cows were bred to finish on grass. Modern day cattle are selected for feedlot performance.
Grass Fed Highland beef raised at Vintage Hill is available. All animals are fed and finished exclusively on pasture. Beef is available for purchase by quarter or half. If you are a fan of grass fed beef, Highland will be the best you have tasted.
