Meet the mini Highland bulls 


Our Little Acres specializes in miniature HighPark cows,

  featuring miniature Highland cross cows.

What is a miniature HighPark?  In short, a miniature HighPark cow is a small, 

hairy cow that is white with black, dun, silver, red, yellow, white, or brindle points.

Basically any traditional Highland color.   

What are points? Points are the nose, ears, eyes and feet of our adoraBull mini cows. 


Our Little Acres coined the word HighPark in 2014.

Tuck is such a handsome and 

sweet boy.

  We measured him on day 3 at 20" tall and he is on track to be 37" at 3yrs.

We are so glad we didn't part with him!


This royal dude is a real beaut! Anyone who has spoken to me knows that
I don't take collecting bulls lightly and they must be special, and he is special!
Semen straws available on Tucker for an introductory price of $250.00 per straw.

When he was collected he was up for the challenge, 3xs in under and hour.
(Talk about stamina!)
I'm sure it had to do with the staff cheering for him that he could "climb that mountain!"
He produced straws at 77% motility and was graded a B using a A-F system.
His Dam Cutie Pie has a beautiful udder and we are hoping that will 
 help Tucker pass genetics for good, well attached udders to his daughters.
Tucker has good width and deep of body, nice bone and spring of rib.
I almost forgot, Tucker is a grandson of Cesar by way of his dam Cutie Pie.

He continues to improve and makes me very proud!

 All unsexed semen straws are sold for conventional use with
no embryo flushing and the buyer is responsible for the shipping. 


In an effort to track Tuckers performance records I will be reducing the price per straw to $150.00 for individuals that would like to participate and are AIing mini/midsize highlands and and their crosses.

This reduction is for 2023 calves preferably.

I would require the purchaser to provide me with.

  • Cow color and parents color(if known)
  • Cow height
  • AI date
  • Photos of calf
  • Calf date of birth
  • Calf color
  • Calf measurement on day 2
  • Chondro status

Why miniature cows?

- Mini cows are small and easier to handle than standard sized cows.

- Mini cows eat less, 1/2 to 1/3 less.

- Mini cows are affectionate, some enjoy being  brushed and petted.

- Mini cows can be transported in a small 2 horse trailer.

- Mini cows are great for volunteer work. 

- Mini cows are wonderful for small acreage owners.

Mini cows can pay for themselves when you have calves for sale.


Bulls are not pets. We love our bulls and we brush and pet them, but we never turn our backs to them. 

They have to respect us as "Herd Boss" but we also respect that they are animals and can be dangerous.
