The highland cow is the world’s oldest registered bovid race.
Very rustic and not asking lots of care, the highland cow is able to adapt to hard environments and very rough climates, while satisfying itself with very poor pastures where other species could not survive.
This cow can exploit pastures with a rather poor plants’ quality. In addition, with herbs, it can consume a large range of shrub plants, and is considered as a perfect brush cutter.
Scotland, highlands’ region. This bovid race is perfectly fitted with moorlands and swampy areas.
