Our Services- As a Breed Society established over 40 years ago, we aim to give our members the best possible service and further expand the use of Simmental genetics in Commercial Suckler herds across the whole of the UK.

Since arriving in the UK the breed has been carefully developed into the most powerful dual purpose breed presently in the UK, with Maternal traits second to none .The breed provides strong, powerful milky females which are docile and easy to handle, are excellent mothers with the ability to convert forage into milk and are extremely fertile. The growth rates of the progeny are amongst the best around with dlwg easily in excess of 2k/day achievable on intensive beef systems. We also promote the highest standards of health in breeding cattle at our Society Sales to further protect our Commercial Customers. In today's economic climate it's a win-win with Simmental, either producing strong milky replacements which will mature early or males which will finish very quickly with a high carcase weight and a higher profit margin,-weight pays!!

Highland cattle, with their long horns and flowing coats, have spread from the west of Scotland and are instantly recognisable throughout the world. The highland breed of cattle has a long and distinguished ancestry, not only in its homeland of western Scotland, but also in many far-flung parts of the world. One of Britain's oldest, most distinctive, and best known breeds, with a long, thick, flowing coat of rich hair and majestic sweeping horns, the Highlander has remained largely unchanged over the centuries. Written records go back to the 18th century and the Highland Cattle Herd Book, first published in 1885, lists pedigrees since that time.

In the British Isles folds are found from the furthest south to the extreme north on many different types of ground varying from the slopes of the Sussex Downs and the fenlands of East Anglia, to the windswept machars of the Outer Hebrides.

The Highlander - the hardy, versatile and iconic breed.
