Welcome to Gumbo Highlands!


Eastern Montana  and the surrounding region was home to many of the Founding Fathers of the American Highland Cattle Association. I'm proud to be playing a small role in preserving this wonderful, heritage breed and carrying out the mission of our Highland Forefathers!


My cows are adapted to the extreme climate of the Northern Great Plains region. They thrive in the typical arid conditions of the Eastern Montana Short Grass Prairie during the grazing season and local grass hay over the long winter.


 You can now find "Gumbo" blood in many of the surrounding states and beyond. I've sold registered, commercial purebred, and Highland/Longhorn cross stock out of three main sires: MacBeth of Cherry Point, Tramp's Solus, and recently, Prairie Thunder. These bulls are descended from some prominent Canadian sires. My current sires are Prairie Thunder out of Wisconsin and KHH Brody from Western Montana. 


I'm now selling purebred Highland breeding stock year round and grass finished beef late summer to winter off pasture. Starting Oct. 4, I will be harvesting 2.5 year old steers off green grass. I currently have 9 calves born March and September 2016 out of Prairie Thunder, KHH Brody, and registered cows. 6 of the calves are bulls, 3 heifers. Call 406-234-1747 or 406-852-0815 if you would like more information about these calves. 


If you're looking for skulls, I have a good selection of Highland and Highland/Longhorn cross skulls available with many new additions. More skull pics will be posted in the future.



 6-2016 bull  and one heifer calves are available for reservation.
