At Skye High Farms we are deeply dedicated to breeding sound, functional, and above all practical highland cattle that suit not only the needs of the modest family farm, but also for the needs of the commercial beef and seed stock producer alike. Our intensive breeding program utilizes what we consider to be some of the very best Highland genetics from around the world and includes both artificial insemination (A.I.), and embryo transfer (E.T.) techniques as well as traditional live cover breeding. Highland cattle from Skye High Farms have won multiple top honors at shows and exhibitions across the U.S. and Canada and continue to be very well received by purebred and commercial cattleman. Passionate about the breed pretty well sums us up; striving to produce animals that will work and preform beyond expectations on both our farm and yours.
Skye High farms, established in 1999, started out as many Highland folks do; with little to nil previous experience with cattle and farming. Since then our knowledge and experience (much of it learned the hard way) has far surpassed our wildest dreams. Skyler was first introduced to Highland cattle at a petting zoo (of all places!..) at our local county fair . Immediately intrigued by these majestic, wild looking beasts we began our research stopping to gawk and ask questions when lucky enough to spot the rare roadside herd, spot a Highland classified add in the newspaper, or meet someone who knew anything about these unique animals.
Now on the verge of our twentieth year with the cattle we continue to be amazed at how far we have come, the many people we've met and befriended, and the places and cattle near and far we have had the pleasure of visiting. I don't think any of us could had guessed where we'd be now back then! Though there are some hard days here on the farm, the apprehension and excitement of the birth of our next long awaited calf always manages to keep us moving forward.
