  • Title: Canadian Highland Cattle Society - History of Highland Cattle
    Descriptive info: The Highland Cattle Society of Scotland was established in 1884 and the first Herd Book published in 1885.. History of Canadian Highland Cattle.. Highland Cattle were first imported into Canada from Scotland in the 1880s: one bull by the Hon.. Donald A.. Smith (Lord Strathcona), Winnipeg, and one bull by Robert Campbell, Strathclair, Manitoba, who later also imported five females.. History has also recorded the presence of Highland Cattle in Nova Scotia during these early years.. The late 1920s began the era significant to present day Canadian breeders, when importations were made from Scotland by breeders in Saskatchewan and Ontario.. R.. Home Smith of Toronto imported one female and W.. A.. McInroy of Ilderton, Ontario, imported two females and a male in 1928.. In 1929, Mary Lindsay imported six females and one male to Greenstreet, Saskatchewan, and  ...   and the United States.. The Canadian Highland Cattle Society was formally incorporated as a livestock breed association under the Livestock Pedigree Act in October 1964.. From that time to the present, the Canadian Highland Cattle Society has employed the services of Canadian Livestock Records Corporation to verify and record the pedigrees of all registered Canadian Highland Cattle.. All Highlands registered in the Canadian Herd Book must be purebred.. By not allowing the addition of other breeds to the Canadian Highland gene pool, the Canadian Highland Cattle Society maintains the purity of the race.. Canadian cattle have always had an excellent health record.. This factor, along with the present worldwide demand for Highland Cattle, has led to a number of exports of Canadian Highlands and Highland embryos to countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Germany and even Scotland..

  • Title: Canadian Highland Cattle Society - Breed Characteristics
    Descriptive info: Mature Weight.. Much like the Highland cattle in ancient Scotland, Canadian Highlands are raised in vastly different environmental conditions.. The wide range seen in the size of cattle within the breed is due mainly to this effect.. The following average weights are for cattle that have not had their growth affected by severe climate or restricted diet:.. Mature bulls weigh 1,800 pounds (800 kilograms) in breeding condition.. Mature cows weigh 1,100 pounds (500 kilograms) in breeding condition.. Steers will finish at about 1,000 pounds (450 kilograms).. This weight can be attained with heavy feeding as a long yearling but most breeders prefer to grow their steers on pasture and finish them at two years.. Hair.. Highlands have a double coat of hair - a downy undercoat and a long outer coat which may reach 13 inches, and which is well-oiled to shed rain and snow.. With the double coat of hair and thick hide, the Highland has been adapted by nature to withstand great exposure.. It is not uncommon for Highlands to shed this heavy hair coat when exposed to a hot dry climate and then grow a new one as the damp cold weather returns.. Rustic Nature.. Rustic.. We have known for a long time that Highland  ...   top quality meat without the addition of expensive high quality feed makes this breed the perfect choice for farmers who wish to produce beef on a forage diet.. To do this successfully an adequate ration must be provided to allow for a growth rate of approximately 2 lb/day right up to slaughter.. Rotational grazing is one method which has been shown to achieve these results.. In the useful links and documentation section, you will find many interesting sites on care and animal health.. Care and Animal Health.. * For example, in Canada, many regions are known for their low rate or even near absence of selenium in the soil.. It is important to overcome this deficiency which often causes irreparable effects on calves and adult animals.. Maternal Instinct.. Mothering instinct is highly developed in the Highland cow.. Abandoned calves, even for first-calf heifers, are rare.. This strong protective inclination of the cow minimizes predator losses that can even extend to sheep that are pastured in the same field.. The Highland calf is exceptionally hardy and grows rapidly up to weaning.. The Highland cow has a long productive life and many herds average 12 calves from each cow.. This greatly reduces their replacement cost, a most important factor these days..

  • Title: Canadian Highland Cattle Society - Breed Standard
    Descriptive info: Head.. As a rule, the head is proportionate to the body of the animal, broad between the eyes, while short from the eyes to the point of the muzzle.. The forelock between the eyes should be wide, long and bushy.. The muzzle should be short, though very broad in front, and with the nostrils fully distended.. In bulls, the horns should be strong, and come level out of the head, slightly inclining forward and also slightly rising toward the points, although some breeders have a preference for a downward curve, which is allowable.. The horns of the cows can follow either of two directions: some come out squarer from the head than the male, rise sooner, and are somewhat longer; others come more level from the head, with a back set curve, and a very wide sweep.. Neck and Shoulder.. The neck should be altogether clear and without dewlap below.. It should form a straight line from the head to the shoulder in the cow, but in the mature bulls should have that distinct crest common to male animals of the bovine species giving a decidedly masculine appearance.. The shoulder should be thick and should fill out greatly as it descends from the point to the lower extremity of  ...   the hind feet.. The legs, both before and behind, should be of moderate length and strong, the bones strong, broad and straight, the hoofs well set in and lacking faults, the legs well feathered with hair.. The animal should be set wide between the forelegs, and it should move with great dignity and style.. The cows should have well attached udders with a strong centre line and four teats of moderate length for easy milking by the calf.. The scrotum on the bull should be well developed and pendulant with two testes of equal size and shape.. Testicles size in a yearling bull has a high correlation with his fertility and the rate of maturity of his daughters.. The Hair.. The hair, of which there should be a great profusion, should be long and gracefully waved.. The predominant color is red but brindled, yellow, white, dun, silver dun, and black are also acceptable.. There is no proven correlation between hair color and animal performance.. Most of the larger herds have animals of differing colors but a few breeders have chosen to breed for a specific shade.. Different Colours.. Brindle.. Dun.. Light Red.. Silver Dun.. (silver dun have grey noses).. White.. (white have red noses).. White Red.. Dark Red.. Yellow.. Black..

  • Title: Canadian Highland Cattle Society - Crossbreeding with Highlands
    Descriptive info: In Scotland, Highlands have traditionally been crossed with the Whitebred Shorthorn.. The crossbred females were retained as "hill cattle" and bred to either Hereford or Angus bulls, but this choice has now widened to include the continental breeds.. The Highland cross female is of moderate size, hardy with a long productive life and, when mated to a fast growing sire, produces a very saleable calf while keeping cow maintenance costs to a minimum.. At the Range Livestock Substation, Manyberries, Alberta*, it was demonstrated that Highlands cross well with Hereford.. First-cross steer calves exceeded the Hereford in growth rate and equaled them in carcass characteristics.. First-cross Highland-Hereford cows were hardy, excellent mothers, and from yearlings up had high conception rates.. They were among the best of all breeds and crosses produced at Manybrerries in weaning a high percentage calf crop (number of calves weaned per cows exposed to  ...   been used, over time, to add an injection of hardiness to other breeds.. This influence has been documented as far away as the mountains of central France where Highlands were crossed with the native Salers breed.. The most recent use of Highlands is with the Luing cattle, developed by the Cadzow Brothers of Scotland.. The breed contains 5/8 shorthorn and 3/8 Highland blood.. Luing is the first new British breed developed in over 100 years.. The following pictures are a good example of crossbred Highlands..
