Australian Highland Cattle Society Inc.   




AHCS breeders had their best Highland cattle out on display at the 2019 AHCS National Show from 8th - 9th June 2019 at Portarlington in Victoria for the Society's 28th Annual National Highland Show. 

A big thank you goes to the Victorian Highland Breeders Group and their hardworking group of volunteers who made the 2019 National Show possible, putting on a spectacular event on behalf of the Australian Highland Cattle Society Inc.

For the first time, the show was held in conjunction with the National Celtic Festival.

UK Judge Stuart Campbell, Herdsman for Cladich Fold, was flown in from Scotland to assess the cattle on exhibition.

The prize for Supreme Highland Exhibit in 2019 was taken out by ​Grand Champion Bull, Connor of Grianach La 8597, bred and exhibited by Graham and Robyn Day of Grianach La fold in Springton, South Australia.

The sash for Grand Champion Female was awarded to Constance of Blue Rock 7612, bred and exhibited by Mark Clement and Deva Weitman of Blue Rock fold in Romsey, Victoria. This was the second time Constance had taken out the top Female prize, being awarded National Grand Champion Female 6 years earlier, in 2013, as a young heifer.
