The Society

Welcome to the Society

Originally known as NZ Lifestyle Breeds, in 2009 we became an Incorporated Society and changed our name to the NZ Lifestyle Highland Society. In March of 2009 we attained RAS Affiliation.

Our Society proudly boasts amongst its members the winners of some of New Zealand's most prestigious trophies within the cattle industry, including seven Meat & Wool Cups.

Accuracy within our herd book is of paramount importance and we continually work towards maintaining this.

The Executive Members are available to all members for advice and assistance on everything from health and animal care through to selling, business mentoring and support.
