Meet the Highland Cows

I’ve been saying for a while that I wanted to have a brief bio on each of the cows. After all, the bulls have their pictures all over the webpage, and the cows are just taken for granted. Cows are people too!

We sell most of our calves as they get to weaning age, and occasionally sell breeding age Highlands as we refine our breeding program or other reasons arise.

Please sign up for our newsletter if you would like to get notifications when we have cattle available. We announce all sales here and in the newsletter and accept offers for 24 hours.

Meet the Highland Coos of Elm Holllow Farm

LiTerra Nadia, AHCA #55217

Meet LiTerra Nadia who serves as lead cow here at Elm Hollow Farm. The other coos follow her when we move to a new pasture. She can be a clown sometimes.

Taking the lead is an important role, but Nadia also needs to know that she has to do as we say. We’re almost to that place now.

Nadia presented us with our very first set of twin heifers at Elm Hollow. Although she is a great mother to a single calf, she was not impressed with having two. We were able to locate a surrogate for one of the little heifers. .. and that story is in Newsletter #11.

Literra Adalida, AHCA #55421

Adalida became our first impact dam with the birth of Elm Hollow’s Jetta in 2020. I can’t praise this cow enough for the beautiful calves she has produced.

Her first daughter, EH Gracie still calls Elm Hollow home and Adalida has given us EH Adelida’s Hope as another “keeper.”

Big Ridge Callie, AHCA #54244

Callie is our trumpeter. She never fails to have a calf that loves to run and socialize with the other caves. It drives this good mama crazy and she has developed quite a loud call for those mischievous babies.

I think you can see the surprise in her eyes when this little tyke showed up only 10 ½ months after the one from the year before!

WKA Annie Get Your Gun, AHCA #56824

Annie has been a delight since she arrived here as a young heifer. She was so proud of her first calf, WB Hickock!

Annie’s maternal skills are impeccable and she allows us to take care of her babies as needed without a fuss. Here she is with Justice, her 2020 calf.

LiTerra Avon, AHCA #58147

Avon Joined us in October of 2018 as a 7-month-old calf and will be having her first Elm Hollow baby in October of 2021. She looks like a younger version of Nadia!

Ban Diuc of Legacy, AHCA #56155

One of my favorites! Ban Diuc of Legacy has given us some absolutely beautiful calves. Sold to us as an open heifer, we were delighted when she presented us with a strong, healthy bull calf shortly after her arrival.

She is a wonderful mother and her offspring are stunning. Pictured with her 2020 heifer calf Jaffa, you can see why I love this cow.
