Chloe is a hardy animal with an unusual thick, shaggy double coat protecting her from harsh winter cold. On the outside is oily outer hair, the longest of any cattle breed, covering a downy undercoat. Her thick coat means that she needs only the three sided barn for shelter here at the farm. In late spring, she sheds her coat to get herself ready for the warm weather. Chloe has a big appetite; she eats a lot of pasture grass and hay. We supplement her diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. She weighs about 1,700 pounds. She is quite mellow but not entirely tame.
The Highland is a breed of rustic cattle originating in the Scottish Highlands and the Outer Hebrides islands of Scotland. It is characterized by long horns and a long shaggy coat. It is a hardy breed, able to withstand the intemperate conditions making it suitable for New England’s climate.
She was donated to the farm by David Sears of Nobscusset Farm, Dennis MA
100% of farm revenue goes for the maintenance of the farm. Most of that is for the care and feeding of the animals.
So your donations and membership in Taylor-Bray Farm are a great help.
