title Highland Cattle World

Cruachan Highland Cattle
Australia

Cruachan Highland Cattle are located in Victoria, Australia, and were founded in 1987.

For 10 years from 1989 to 1999 Cruachan was involved in showing Highlands at major shows throughout three states covering a 1200 kilometres radius (750 miles). During this time frame Cruachan imported embryos from Canada, semen from New Zealand, Canada and America, as well as using existing semen stocks from Scotland. This formed the basis of the herd today.

Nowadays the farm is run more as a lifestyle property with the retention of 20 quality breeding females.

The Cruachan website contains a number of articles that have been gathered over the years and is definitely worth a browse.
