What Makes us different? 

We raise the highest quality Highland Cattle Australia has to offer.  Our aim is to provide premium quality Pure Bred Highland Beef for the butcher and elite Highland seed genetics for the stud owner.  We also promote the qualities of the Highland breed in Australia.

HIGHLAND - THE HEALTHY BEEF


The Scottish Agricultural College identified the cholesterol level in Highland Beef is comparable to chicken.  The fat content can be less than a third of that of commercial breeds and the fat which is present is low in saturated fat and contains more useful Omega-3 fatty acids than non-British breeds.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF CATTLE OWNERSHIP 


It is so easy to overlook the legalities, regulations, ‘red tape’ and forget about the wide range of responsibilities for cattle ownership.  All important points to consider before purchasing your first Highlands to help the transition run smoother for Australian owners.
