HEY, HOWDY, HELLO!

POINT PLEASANT CATTLE COMPANY

Leonore, Illinois


Point Pleasant Cattle Company focuses on breeding quality highland cattle registered with the American Highland Cattle Association. Established in 2018 by owners Kimber and Seth King, we take pride in raising and preserving the Grand Ole Breed. Choosing to breed highlands was a deliberate choice due to their unique blend of beauty and functionality.


Highland cattle are a heritage breed meaning they haven't been heavily impacted by industrial/commercial agriculture. Heritage animals are the animals that you’d find on your great-grandparents' farms. Compared to cattle breeds you may find on industrial/commercial farms, highlands have genetics that are more “well-rounded.” While we select our animals for certain characteristics, they are not selected so narrowly to lose other valuable and biologically important characteristics. Highlands are best known for their docility, hardiness in a variety of environments, and efficiency in converting forage into premium, tender beef.
