BUYING A MINI HIGHLAND

1. APPLICATION + FEE

The first step in purchasing a micro mini or mini Highland cow is to submit our application form and fee, located at the bottom of this page. Because of the incredible demand, the application fee is to secure your spot on the waitlist.

2. WAITING LIST

Once you have completed the application form and completed payment, you are placed on the waitlist. We try to have calves coming year round with our embryo program, but this isn't guaranteed. We have worked hard to cultivate our herd and breed directionally with clear intent, your calf will be well worth the wait!

3. DEPOSIT

When we have a calf that fits your desired specifications, we will contact you with a purchase agreement and a deposit request to hold your chosen calf until they are ready for pickup. During this process we will help work out logistics, care, and answer any questions you may have during this time.

4. DELIVERY

While it is ultimately the customers responsibility to get their calf home, we are here to help if you need it! We have the ability to personally deliver calves close to us, and we have experience with safely shipping our calves through several airlines. We have helped deliver our calves across the nation, so don't be afraid to jump on this incredible opportunity if you are outside of our home state.
