  • Scottish highland cattle.The Scottish Highland cattle, Highland Cattle or Kyloe (Scottish Gael. Bò Gàidhealach "Gaelic cattle") is a breed of domestic cattle. It is the oldest recorded cattle breed (1884).It comes from the north-west of Scotland and the Hebrides, where it has developed the characteristics attributed to it over the centuries through natural selection - the small and relatively light highland cattle is considered good-natured, robust and long-lived, it is suitable for year-round outdoor keeping, even for heavy ones Cattle on unsuitable soils (suckler cow husbandry), calves easily and a lot, even without human help. It provides medium-cream milk and low-cholesterol meat.Originally there were two breeds, the usually black and slightly smaller Kyloe, which lived on the islands of north-west Scotland, and a more reddish and slightly larger breed from the outlying Highlands. Through breeding, both breeds became one and acquired the reddish-brown color that is predominant today. The official designations of the color spectrum of the long-haired coat are: red, yellow and black and - more rarely - brindle (brindle), grey-brown (dun) and white.The long and very symmetrical horns are usually shaped differently depending on the sex. In bulls, they typically have a strong, horizontally forward curving shape. The horns of the cows are usually significantly longer and curved upwards.Source: Wikipedia

  • With regional support, a marketing initiative for Ried cattle “Pleasure from Pfrunger-Burgweiler Ried” could be set up under the direction of agricultural engineer Sabine Behr from the Wilhelmsdorf Nature Conservation Center together with the farmers. It brings the meat of the reed cattle, which are used in landscape conservation for extensive grazing, to consumption and regional gastronomy.
