SCOTTISH HIGHLAND BEEF CATTLE

Blue Sky Farm is proud to raise and sell Scottish Highland beef cattle. About Scottish Highlands: Highland cattle are the oldest registered breed of cattle. Still never heard of them? They are generally recognizable by the double coat of hair (long, coarse, outer layer and soft wooly inner layer) is one of the most notable differences between Highlands and all other breeds. It is not unusual to see Highlands grazing a day or two after a winter storm with snow still melting off their backs as they are that well insulated. The long hair over the eyes (called the dossan) helps reduce the incidence of pinkeye and other fly borne problems. Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

WHAT IS HIGHLAND PREMIUM BEEF?



It is beef that comes from Highland cattle that is superior in flavor, tenderness and cooking. Highland (sometimes called Scottish Highland) is a distinct breed of cattle that are generally smaller than Angus and unique in their looks because of their long hair and horns. It is one of the oldest purebred cattle breeds in the world, extremely hardy and first developed
on the cold north Atlantic coast of Scotland. Highland cows will average
900-1,200 pounds when mature. Bulls will average from 1,500 to 2,000 pounds depending on forage conditions. A study by the Scottish
Agricultural College determined that Highland beef is significantly lower in
fat and cholesterol and higher in protein and iron than other beef breeds.
