McCallie Highland Coos has been raising and breeding registered Scottish cattle for decades for breeding, pets, and all natural beef.


Breeding exclusively registered Scottish bovine is essential to this ancient breed's survival. After thousands of years of existence, this amazing creature became endangered in recent years due to crossbreeding with other species. As an example, miniature Highlands are not legitimate and cannot be registered because the mutated gene, chondrodysplasia, does not exist in these Scottish cattle.


Dwarfism can only be achieved by mixing different breeds that are no longer Highlands. Crossbreeding Highland cattle with the likes of Dexters risks lethal health consequences to the animals and future offspring. McCallie Highland Coos are purebred and we do not condone actions that sully or endanger the future of this amazing animal.


Most of our coos are registered in at least one of either the American Highland Cattle Association (AHCA) and or the Heartland Highland Cattle Association (HHCA).

Sterling was the last baby of Skye, one of our largest, most impressive heifers. Like Sterling, she was a dun. Claymore is a black bull. Sterling will not grow to be as large as his parents, likely topping out around 1,400-1,500 lbs with a smaller, but stocky conformation. He is very eager to breed and while super gentle with people, he is rambunxious and playful with his friends, especially his closest brother.


While still a baby, Sterling traveled to the St. Louis Scottish Games where he met about 4,000 attendees and was briefly featured on a televised news story about the event. He needs a home with at least one breeding aged heifer and will remain a delightful pet.


Highland coos are reputed to have much easier births than most bovines. For that reason, there is little footage of them being born. We were fortunate to capture the rarely seen moment of his delivery by following Skye deep into our forest where she gave birth to Sterling as a small, dun bull. Footage of this precious moment is below and also on our Wild Flower Farm YouTube channel.

Laird is the largest baby we have ever had. Highland bulls can potentially max out at 2,000 lbs and of all the babies we have ever bred, he is most likely to achieve such massive size. At birth, he was nearly the size of a six-month old. As a yearling, he is as tall as some of our smaller heifers.


He is a very cuddly bull who loves to be pet, brushed, and scratched. He is very gentle with people and only occasionally wrestles with other coos. His personality is more independent than most of our fold and should be very easy to halter train, use for riding, or pulling. We expect he will throw amazing babies with greater likelihood of them being black since both of his parents are. Laird was born bright red and has evolved like a brindle as his adult black hairs replace his baby coat. Baby Laird has always been super sweet and cuddly from the moment he was born.
