For Sale – Elm Hollow’s Leon Dubh: a companion or pet steer.

Leon was born November 15, 2022 and is another favorite in halter class this year. He was never a fighter and allowed me to groom him all over on the first day of class.

His good friend, Louis is never far away and the two would be a great pair of pasture pets. Leon will be a great companion to a heifer, bull or another steer. Louis and Leon will be sold together.

I always recommend that if you want a pet, choose a steer. They are more even tempered because there are no hormone swings to deal with. When a cow is in heat, she can get cranky, and a bull can get obstinate when he detects love the air anywhere in the neighborhood.

While we don’t normally register our steers because they won’t be reproducing, we do register their birth with the AHCA and you can trace their lineage through the herdbook. We can register Leon at the buyer’s request for $50.

Following is Leon’s ancestry as recorded in the AHCA Herdbook:

Leon is easy to lead, especially if he has seen Louis head out ahead of him. He’ll be a great companion for a heifer, bull or another steer. Since he and Louis are pasture pals here, they will be sold together.

If you would like additional information or would like to purchase Leon and Louis, simply email [email protected] with your FULL NAME, YOUR FARM’S LOCATION, and a brief description of your farm.

I will also be requesting information about your pastures, facilities for handling, goals for your Highlands: (pasture ornaments, pets, beef, showing, etc.)  It is important to gather this information before the sale because I don’t accept offers unless I feel like the buyer and the calf/cow are a good match.  It is important that calf/cow will be manageable for the buyer and will be able to fulfill their goals.  I also want to be sure my calves/cows will have a safe home with the buyer.

All Elm Hollow calves have been vaccinated and examined by our vet.  All have been socialized, halter trained to stand and lead. Elm Hollow farm will pay for transfer fees when applicable and health certificates when required for transport.

Leon and Louis sold for $4,500.
