Victorian Highland
Breeders Group


The Victorian Highland Breeders Group has been set up by the Australian Highland Cattle Society to bring together all Highland cattle breeders in Victoria, both members of the national body and non-members. The group organises field days, shows and other events that allow breeders to get together and learn more about our breed and socialise with other like-minded (some say slightly "mad"), Highland enthusiasts. There is also a regular email newsletter with lots of information on our wonderful breed.

If you wished to be a part of this group, email us with your details.
