The shaggy haired, long horned Highland is closely associated with the beauty, mystery, and romance of the Scottish Highlands. Underneath this dramatic appearance lies a useful and productive cattle breed. The Highland descends from the native cattle of Scotland and is named for the Highland region. The breed was shaped primarily by natural selection, and as a result it is best known for its survival qualities hardiness, maternal abilities, reproductive efficiency, and longevity.
