Our animals are some of the most natural available
We've chosen Red Devon cattle and Tamworth pigs to start our farm. They are both heritage breeds of animals, and chances are, you may have not seen them before. The first cows came to our pastures in the summer of 2018, and the pigs followed the next summer. Both breeds are considered to be purest of genetics and superior for grass diets by the Livestock Conservancy, which we are members.
Meet Gambler, our foundation bull
Hillside Gambler is a Homozygous Polled bull that came to High Line Farm in January, 2018 from Hillside Pastures in Wisconsin. He immediately went to work, and we now have a generation of calves from him on the ground. His deep pedigree includes some of the best genetics in the breed.
He is sired by Brookview Z61. Gambler’s maternal grandsire was Thistle Hill’s Casino 243-41, a bull that also produced Tomina’s Warlock B90, the bull selected by Dr. Allen Williams as the 2016 National Junior Champion Devon bull.
Gambler’s dam, Tomina’s Stardust A312, is an 1100 pound cow with a terrific udder and good feet.
Our purebred females come from superior genetics in the breed
Our foundation females come from many well known herds in the country. We have daughters from well known and up-and-coming bulls; including, Lakota King Henry and Vix Jatz.
