We hope you can find everything you need.

J & J Singer is focused on raising and breeding good quality Highlanders.  We are focusing on black but we are happy to have some other lovely colours for both their bloodlines as well as some variation.


We are a relatively new fold having just started our Highland family in September 2008, but have quickly learned to love and appreciate this old breed, with it's majestic look and lovely dispositions.

Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.



John and Jenne Singer



Sgiathach Dubh of Ardtornish. She was bred by James Duncan of Benmore and got the Ardtornish prefix after she was bought by Mr T.V Smith of Ardtornish. Born 1886 Sire: Coirintee(115) Dam: Sgiatcah (162). Information from herdbook - Volume 3 printed in 1888

 

"In my grandfather's day no colour was considered right for highland cattle but black. The great thing then was to have a fold of black cows. No one would look at the reds and yellows and cream and duns, which are all the rage nowadays. Though the blacks have since become unpopular, I have been told by the very best of old judges of Highland cattle that there is nothing to beat the blacks for hardiness, and that new strains of fancy coloured cattle are much softer and have not the same constitution."

Osgood Mackenzie (1842 - 1922)
