Highland cow is the earliest certified cow in the world. Most of their ancestors are European bison. When the sea water overflowed the English channel, the bison that came to the English Island were isolated from the cattle on the European continent and hybridized with the local Celtic cattle, so there was the highland cow we see today.
Highland cow is also available in black. When Queen Victoria visited the Highlands, she expressed her love for reddish brown calves. In order to please the queen, the locals deliberately bred cattle of this color, so there are fewer and fewer black highland cow.
Highland cow has long hair to keep out the cold, and its body fat rate is much lower than that of other cows. Therefore, the beef quality of this kind of cattle is very good, with low cholesterol and fat content and more protein. Rumor has it that the queen of England only eats this kind of beef.
