About Us

Our family consists of six members: Maryn, Lauren, Ethan, Melinda, Shaelyn, and Shawn Cowell. We bought our first highlands in 2012 and have been hooked ever since! We strive to have high quality registered animals that will perform well in any given environment. We started Beyond Hope Farm in 2012, but did not purchase registered calves until 2015. Our starter pair was two weaned calves, a crossbred sovereign heifer and a registered purebred steer. Since then we have moved to a new location in Ellendale, MN, and have a total of 11 animals! Our plans for the future would be to grow our herd to 25 head of brood cows, replacement heifers, and beef steers. Our animals display the traditional characteristics of a Scottish Highland: long, wavy hair; horns; hardiness; superior mothering instincts; and excellent meat quality. When we look for a quality animal, we look at their conformation. This would include their skeletal structure, depth of body, muscling, levelness, and overall eye appeal. This is very important to us as these traits can impact the longevity of the animal. Our top goal is to have functional cattle that are able to produce quality breeding heifers and beef steers.
