So there is a potential threat to the Highland Cattle breed in the United States. It’s a long story, but there’s an organization called the Heartland Highland Cattle Association who potentially could corrupt the highland cattle breed in the United States. The leaders of this association (without allowing a vote from their members) went rogue and decided to create their own registry and register animals that appear to be Scottish Highland Cattle. For a fee they will give the cows papers, and call them pure blooded.
It sounds OK in theory, but the American Highland Cattle Association already has a wonderful registry that’s been around over 70 years. The AHCA registry is based on the actual genealogy of the pure bred animal. With AHCA papers you can trace the history of the animal back for generations and connect with breeders across the country who’s animals share common ancestors. Get Cow American Flag shirt now. AHCA was created to preserve an ancient, endangered breed of pure bred highland cattle. At one time the breed was listed as critical, but now thanks to the effort of responsible breeders it is now listed as recovering.
