"Highlands in Miniature" Little Cattle
Ruatiti Highland Fold is proud to be involved in the restoration and breeding of an ancient breed, Scottish Highlands
No taller that 42 inches at 3 years of age, often called Little Cattle, a study by the British Royal Navy theorizes that prior to the early 1800's, Highlands were no larger than today’s miniatures. Highland cattle are believed to be the oldest registered breed, dating back to 1884.
This ancient breed is indeed, "History with a Future"
Farming more to the acre than standard bred highlands, miniatures are the perfect animal for any sized property.
Referred to by some as Little Cattle, these delightful, genteel animals have a place in everyone’s heart.
An even tempered, naturally disease resistant breed, today’s miniatures are more multipurpose than they have ever been during their long existence.
Whether for pleasure or investment, miniature highlands are a sight to behold.
Extremely rare globally, demand for these rare beauties exceeds supply.
