The CHCS website is getting 40-55 different people visiting it each day. The most popular are the For Sale pages (Cattle, Semen & a Fold Near You). Consider publicity on our web site... It may be worth it!

We are working on the next The Kyloe Cry. If you want to put some publicity in it, please contact Sylvie at

Did You Know?

All breeding bulls must have DNA identification on file with the CLRC before their progeny can be registered.

Please Remember: If you plan to apply for registration of an animal 24 months of age or over, you must supply proof of parentage by DNA analysis. It is the responsibility of the seller to pay for the bull’s analysis.

Multiple Breedings
Our Bylaws & Regulations book is available to all members on our website: CHCS Bylaws & Regulations              
While reading it, you will learn important rules regarding registration, such as: 

Miscellaneous Provisions 

16. Multiple Breeding

16.1 A breeder’s rights and privileges respecting registration and transfer of animals, produced by a female or an identifiable group of females over the age of 10 months, may be suspended if, in respect of that female or group, more than one bull over that age has had access.  Such rights and privileges may be reinstated by the Society, in its discretion, upon proof of parentage of such animals as are born within a period of up to 12 months prior to the observation of the surplus bull or bulls and terminating 10 months subsequent to the removal of such bull or bulls.

16.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing,

16.2.1 if there is clear evidence of a breach of the provisions of the bylaws or regulations of the Society, which impinges on the integrity of the registration or identification of Highland cattle in Canada or of the keeping of the pedigree of such cattle, or

16.2.2 in the event of the applicability of the provisions of Sections 63, 64 or 65 of the Act, a breeder’s rights and privileges respecting registration and transfer of animals shall be suspended pending the disposal of the issues by the Society, pursuant to its bylaws and regulations and the provisions of the Act.

16.3 In cases where, in the judgment of the Board of Directors, proof of parentage is not conclusive, the animals affected shall be ineligible for registration; and, if such an animal has already been registered, the registration shall be annulled. 

16.4 A female animal already exposed to a bull, either naturally or by artificial insemination, shall not be exposed to another bull until at least 18 days have elapsed since exposure to the first bull, failing which the resulting calves shall be subject to proof of parentage prior to their registration in the Herd Book.

A Helpful Tip for Highland Breeders
If you need to clean the ear of a Highland to apply a new tattoo or read an old tattoo before completing a transfer...
Just wipe the ear with the new «Lysol Disinfecting Wipes» 4 in1
The Wipes clean, disinfect and remove all wax build-up (and they come in a variety of scents).
