f you look all over youtube and instagram you will see these cows!
Why!?! What is so special about them? In our latest video (click above to watch) we talked about the pros and cons of Highland cattle, and what led us to ultimately decide to bring some on our farm.
Like all breeds, the Highland Cattle breed has some things it is really good at, and other things it isn’t.
For example, being from a harsh, cold and rainy part of the world, Highlands excel in cold, northern climates. Winters in western PA will be NO PROBLEM for them and their beautiful shaggy coats!
That same PRO can be a con for someone who lives in warmer areas. You might see less Highland Cattle down in Florida.
While they might be perfect for our homestead, they might not be right for yours.
The fact is every homestead and every homesteader are different, and what is right for one may not be right for the other.
This is one reason I like to interview OTHER homesteaders on our Podcast. I like to hear how others are growing their own unique farms, what animals they choose to raise and why, what projects they are doing to their land, and how they are getting the most from their plot.
Tomorrow, Tuesday December 7th at 1PM Eastern Time I am going to be interviewing Sarah Rowe.
Sarah and her husband Ray have an awesome 50 acre Homestead in Ohio where you can find all kinds of animals, including Highland Cattle! Follow here on INSTAGRAM HERE.
Sarah spent her youth ‘playin in the mud’ and hunting in the gateway to the south, Louisville, Kentucky. Sarah spent years as a professional wrestler, where she met her husband Ray. They married in a Viking themed wedding, and in June of 2019, they announced Sarah’s pregnancy.
Rowesborg was established in 2019. Making the farm a homestead of their own, the goal is to live a sustainable life as healthy and naturally as possible. To the Rowes, homesteading is becoming self-sufficient with what you have at home. Growing, creating, hunting, and harvesting their food.
Homesteady Pioneers are welcome to join Sarah and Myself as we talk all things homesteading, and ask Sarah some questions when the show is over.
