Getting our first Scottish Highland meat soon. Our guy was 28 mos. Hanging weight 366 lbs. Small by most standard breeds I know, but great for the 2 of us. Should still be a bit over 200 lbs of take home beef.
He loaded on the trailer great and got off calmly. Can't get any easier then that.

Here's an older photo of him. He was our second calf born on the farm.

No don't know live weight. I only fed him corn and grain the last 2 weeks. I should have started earlier. But he's grass fed and all natural.
Very slow maturing breed, but you know, I think it will be enough beef for us to last 2 yrs.
