OUTSTANDING HIGHLAND BULLS
Semen from Outstanding Highland Bulls
Available from Elm Hollow’s Collection
Elm Hollow Farm first began to offer the sale of semen in July of 2019 with the purchase of BR Voodoo Magic AHCA #51522
We had not planned to carry a semen inventory, but the straws were already collected and were included in the purchase of this outstanding bull so we began to learn about the process of collection, storage, and sale of the semen of great bulls.
Magic had a younger Big Ridge bull, Big Ridge Fergus, as his pasture companion. Fergus is a stunning bull as well, and armed with our new knowledge, we had straws collected from him to add to our tank. We continue to have a limited number of both these Big Ridge bulls available for your AI needs.
Straws for our our rare/champion bulls inventory are $100 each with the following discounts available:
6-10 straws – 5% discount
11-25 straws – 10% discount
26+ straws – 15% discount
Color Variety package $700 (A discount of 0ver 12%)

Bulls from Other Farms
In the fall of 2020, I was contacted by a well-known international judge of Highland cattle who extended to me an opportunity purchase his entire inventory of semen from bulls that he considered to be the most outstanding examples of the breed. We have never regretted that purchase.
Because some of these bulls have been out of circulation for some time, I have compiled as much information as I was able to find on each, including their genetic background as taken from herd books where they are recorded. A couple are also recorded in the Canadian herd book and one in Scotland.
