enjoyed reading the thread, lots of good info to ponder over. thinking of getting some highland cattle myself. one of my Amish neighbors suggested I raise some for beef (his brother was selling highland calves so his suggestion to me was a wee bit biased in finding a buyer for them). I wasn't all interested in dairy but beef prices are obscene, and after I harvest the southern 10 acres of my lot it'll only be good as a browse rich pasture. I figure I could support 2-6 cattle on it. highlands are also well adpted to winter conditions and are hardy, like anything of Celtic stock. got 10 acres to plow up as a field as well, so I can support with both pasture and feed. right now I am just clearing the acreage and selling logs, firewood etc and keeping higher quality stuff, but really thinking about highland cattle afterwards.
