Much like the Highland cattle in ancient Scotland, Canadian Highlands are raised in vastly different environmental conditions. The wide range seen in the size of cattle within the breed is due mainly to this effect. The following average weights are for cattle that have not had their growth affected by severe climate or restricted diet:

Mature bulls weigh 1,800 pounds (800 kilograms) in breeding condition.
Mature cows weigh 1,100 pounds (500 kilograms) in breeding condition.
Steers will finish at about 1,000 pounds (450 kilograms). This weight can be attained with heavy feeding as a long yearling but most breeders prefer to grow their steers on pasture and finish them at two years.

La race bovine Highland est originaire des hautes terres et des îles de la côte ouest de l’Écosse. Région où les conditions climatiques sont difficiles et où les vents sont très présents. La race fut son apparition au Canada dans les années 1880.
