About Rocking L Ranch
Chad Lindula, founder of Rocking L Miniature Cattle Ranch, first heard of miniature cattle in 2006 and couldn't believe their existence. He was particularly taken with the iconic look of Scottish Highlands but visualized a size perfect for a hobby farm or family pet. After years of research and networking, and most importantly building relationships, Chad began his own breeding program of these unbelievable animals with a herd of Kentshires. Kentshires provided the perfect starting point to learn about caring for these unique animals.
Highland Cows originate from the very rugged Highlands of Scotland. Due to the conditions of the Highlands, this breed has developed into a very hardy breed of cattle that are unlike any other breed. It didn't take long after he started to learn more about this breed Chad knew he needed miniature Scottish Highlands.
small cattle are easier on the land, equipment and facilities
Easier to handle than large commercial beef cattle
Easier (and better for the animal) to maintain a small herd as opposed to a solitary animal
Today, Rocking L has transitioned to exclusively breeding miniature Scottish Highland cattle as well as designer Highland crossbreeds. We pride ourselves on our bespoke approach to breeding. Our herd consists of only nine hand-selected cattle - five micro miniature Scottish Highland cows, three miniature White Park cows,and our prize micro miniature Scottish Highland bull, Ohno.
The ranch, located in Buckley, WA, resides on four acres of pasture and features an additional nine acres of forest for the herd to freely graze and roam. For more information, please contact us and follow along on Facebook and Instagram!
