Highland Cow Breeders in California

Breeder NameLocationContact NumberWebsite
Mullenax Ranch Tehachapi, 
C2 Miniature Highland Cattle Co  Fresno, CA
Long Meadow Ranch Saint Helena, CA 707-963-4555

1. Mullenax Ranch 

Mullenax Ranch is a highland cattle breeder from Tehachapi CA. This small family-owned farm raises and sells Scottish highland cattle, Nigerian dwarf goats, poultry, waterfowl, sheep, and others. 

Mullenax Ranch offers both registered and unregistered highland calves and their price ranges from $2,000 to $10,000. Payments are in cash only at pick-up; you can pay for deposits ($500) via cash or checks. 

You will need to pay a non-refundable deposit to reserve a calf – they do not require you to have previous cattle ownership which is excellent if you are thinking of starting a herd of your own for the first time. However, you will still need another animal as they do not sell to ‘single cow households’.  

They might offer to transport your animal for an additional fee – contact them for more details. Visit their website to read more about their sales policy and available animals. 

2. C2 Miniature Highland Cattle Co 

C2 Miniature Highland Cattle is located in the Central Valley of Fresno, CA. They raise and sell miniature and micro miniature Highland cattle. 

Their heifers start at $7,000, and steers at $6,500; for pricing on their bulls, you will need to contact them directly. They require a $2,500 non-refundable deposit to hold a calf for you; the rest of the payment needs to be made by the pickup time or before shipping. 

3. Long Meadow Ranch 

If you are looking for highland beef, Long Meadow Ranch can be an interesting option. According to their website, they raise grass-fed Highland cattle and have one of the largest herds in California with several hundred animals; they are also members of the American Highland Cattle Association. Contact them directly for more information as they might also sell live calves, not just meat.
