No one knows the exact origins of Scotlandsīs distinctive shaggyhaired breed of Highland Cattle. Are they, perhaps, the direct descendants of the now-extinct auroch or European wild ox? There is, after all, more than just a hint of the mammoth in the appearence of a fully grown Highland cow. With their loag coats and enormous, taperde horns (wich points upwards on the cows and downwards on the bulls) these cattle have magnificant, even fearsome, look about them. In fact they are remarkably even-tempered beasts.
Most people still buy Highlands for their looks, but more and more peple are considering putting them into low input agricultural systems because they donīt require huge buildings, or expensive concentrated feeding.The interest in organic beef production could also be of great significance.
