Scottish Highland Cattle

Thursday, June 26, 2008

This afternoon, I am posting some images of a small herd of Highland Cattle which are kept in Pollock Park, Glasgow.

This is an ancient breed with two root stocks, one red and one black. The red version appears the more dominant.

Highland Cattle are very hardy animals and seem to thrive on the high hills/mountains with poor pasture. They are well suited to Northen climates but are very slow to mature and hence are not popular with beef growers.

The animals are very placid and photogenic and hence popular with tourists.
