Breeding Stock & Pasture Ornaments
Foxtail Farmstead Highland Breeding Stock
We select only the top 1/2 of our Highland heifer calves & 1 bull calf annually to be registered and used as breeding stock .
The rest of the calves are used in our beef program or sold to be raised for beef and pasture ornaments.
We select breeding stock based on reproductive reliability, ability to raise a qualify calf every year, and conformation. Growth rate and frame size are always important considerations but we do not breed for any type of extremes. We cull ruthlessly to obtain quality udders, teats, and, feet.
Highland Breeding Stock "For Sale"
(Photos will be available in April 2013)
From time to time we have Highland breeding stock available for sale. Currently, as of 1/1/2013, we do not have any breeding stock available for sale. We anticipate having some registered or non-registered Highlands available by the April 2013. We will update our website and add photographs as well at that time. You may also call/email us for more information.
If you have been to this website previously, you would have seen many Highlands for sale. Highland breeding stock sales went tremendously well in 2012. We need to retain most of our breeding stock at this point to produce animals for our beef program.
Prices for Highland breeding stock varies based on bloodlines and performance. Registered breeding stock starts at $1,500. From time to time we may have non-registered animals for less. However, please keep in mind that the current beef value of a Highland is between $1,300 to $1,700.
