About Scottish Highland
One of the oldest domesticated cattle breeds in the world, they were a large source of early Scottish people as the family milk cow and beef for their table. Highland cattle have a somewhat smaller frame than many other commercial breeds and a long "top coat" with fine under-hair that keeps them warm and dry during harsh winters. Their coat color can range from almost white to black and include reds, brindles, and dun. Purebred highland cattle naturally have horns and not normally de-horned at birth as are so many other commercial breeds.
A mature highland bull weighs approximately 1800 lbs. Horns on highland bulls generally grow horizontally pointing forward and slightly downward. Though they look fearsome, they are generally easy going and mild mannered. A mature highland cow weighs approximately 1100 lbs. Their horns that sweep up and outward with fine dark tips. Natural hardiness and great mothers make them the perfect choice for those new to raising cattle.
Scottish Highland Cattle carry themselves in a very regal manner. With their almost prehistoric appearance, easy going temperament and intelligence they are a very special breed of cattle to raise.
Dancing Cow Farms was established in Wellsville, Kansas in 2010. We started with a herd of 7 Scottish Highland Cattle. Since 2010 we have focused on providing the highest quality livestock to our surrounding area.
We raise our cows on Kansas sunshine, green grass, and with a lot of love, affection, and care. Our cattle are grown and finished on grass, with no grain, hormones or antibiotics.
