Great picture LJ
so FURRY!! thanks stevem and laura for some background on these beautiful animals.
The Highland is the oldest registered breed of cattle, with the first herd book being established in 1884. Around that time, American cattlemen from the western U.S. recognized the natural qualities of the Highland cow and imported them to improve the blood lines of their herds. As a result, the Highland contributed in a great way to the success of the American cattle industry. Today Highlands are found throughout North America, as well as in Europe, Australia, and South America.
As far as 'eatability' is concerned, don't forget that Aberdeen Angus is considered just about the best beef you can find - and there it is on the hoof!
No, I didn't touch them because they weren't near the fence. Plus is was terribly muddy. They are good enough to eat, franneke, but we will refrain from eating these particular cows! Thank you, morris!
Love it, laura!
They look good enough to eat.
Awwwwww! I hope you got to touch them Laura.
They have shaggy rugs to keep them warm. Thanks for the comments, Robbie, PG and Celeste!
Wow what a cow.. :)
I need my shears to get to the meat. Nice shot LJ I guess they can get through the winter without too much help.
Love this picture LJ, thanks.
PG saw my pasture puzzle yesterday and asked, "Where's the beef?" That saying is a tag line from a fast food burger restaurant here in the States.
Laura, please don't consign them to the pot just yet!
