Who are Ennerdale Highlands?

The Ennerdale Highland Cattle Fold was established in 2001, after three years of researching different cattle breeds.  Since this time Ennerdale has been actively involved in the Cattle Industry - visiting highland folds in their homeland Scotland, throughout UK, in several Australian States and around the world.   We've attended highland gatherings, farming field days and been involved in assessing many cattle breeds, not just Highlands.  As well as breeders we are involved in areas such as Farming Consultation Services, Assessment of Cattle, Artificial Insemination & Pregnancy Testing, Cattle Judging and holding Informative hands on Seminars at the farm.  In the past we activity Showed & Displayed Cattle at Local Country Shows through to the National level, Local Field Days and Scottish Theme Events in four states in Australia. Ennerdale Highland Cattle are currently members of United Kingdom and Australian Societies and have cattle registered in both Herd Books. 

More about Ennerdale Cattle...

Ennerdale is a closed herd.  Initially if we introduced new breeding stock it was blood tested and quarantined before mixing with our fold.  So we are proud to say our herd has an elite health status.  We live in a Johnès protected zone.  ( Johnès disease in cattle is terminal, there is no cure once infected ).  Ennerdale cattle are treated with 7 in 1 vaccinations from birth, and a booster every year. ( This will cover the animal for 7 different cattle diseases known in Australia ).  We also vaccinate for pesti-virus ( which has started to spread throughout the country ), Pink Eye and routine back line drenching for lice and parasites.

Ennerdale Cattle are from UK registered Sires - and we also have out-cross UK genetics that are exclusive to Ennerdale.

We only sell what we would want to have in our herd - any Highlander which does not meet the Ennerdale Highlands standard is culled, not sold - there is no compromise - we only breed from the best genetics.

It is unfortunate that we just can’t keep them all!

Highland Semen 

All our highland semen has been imported and collected professionally and is currently stored with a professional Breeding Services Company in our area, who ship throughout Australia.  BEFORE placing an order they will require an address of an Artificial Breeding Service or A.I. technician to receive the shipment, this will ensure the semen is handled correctly at all times and also ensures the return of the shipping container.  A basic rate of $210 will send a liquid nitrogen container interstate.  On occasions orders can be combined to reduce costs and we are happy to enquire to offer you the best shipping quote.  If semen is stored and handled correctly it will last for many years.  In the past we have successfully used 20 year old semen.
