Miniature high park cows are increasingly sought-after due to their beauty and calm demeanor. Some buyers even use them as tax write-offs for agricultural property exemptions. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready for the responsibility that comes with caring for a herd: long-haired breeds such as these require more regular vaccinations than others.
Also, many miniature high park cows aren’t purebred Highlands but crossbred with other breeds such as Dexters – this increases the risk of herds developing bulldog calves that could prove deadly genetic disease for any pack. Therefore, it is wise to conduct your research prior to buying one of these miniature high park cows.

Miniature cattle are easy to care for and withstand harsh climates.

Miniature cows have seen increased demand due to an increasing awareness of sustainable and ethical meat sources. According to advocates, small cattle may be easier to manage and less damaging for grass and fencing on farms, producing tenderer meat than full-sized cows as they need less feed and their smaller bodies place less strain on trailers and land compared to their full-sized counterparts. Unfortunately, miniature cows may not be suitable for all buyers – some buyers may prefer other breeds or sizes instead of miniature ones.
Cows can grow to weigh 1,400 pounds. Being such a substantial animal, not everyone wants to deal with one that might come barreling toward you when approached by strangers. That is why finding a reliable breeder and avoiding deals that seem too good to be authentic is essential in markets where scammers may operate.
