Have you ever heard of a Highland Cow?? Ever seen one in person? Now's your chance to come to the festival to meet Angel. She's a 3-year old, docile, white Highland Cow. You can take her picture, feed her, and pet her through the fence.

What are Highland cattle, you say?? I'm glad you asked!!

Highland cattle are the oldest registered breed of cattle. The Scottish Highland Cattle Society was formed in 1884 and most of the cattle registered were black. Today Highland cattle may be red, black, yellow, white, brindle, silver or dun in color. Highland cattle are noted for their hardiness and vigor. They strive where other breeds struggle. Highlands have a long, close history of living with humans. Early Scots would keep the cows downstairs to provide warmth for the family on the second floor. Highlands tend to be docile and calm, do not stress easily, and are easy to work with despite their long horns. Unlike other breeds, Highlands are slow maturing, making the meat fine textured and succulent . Highland beef is significantly lower in fat and cholesterol and higher in protein and iron than other beef breeds.

Angel is brought to you by Dick and Gail Reinap, Texowa Ranch, 1878 Hwy. 21 East, Paige, TX 78659
