Vagabond Highlands


About Vagabond

Vagabond Highlands is a registered Breeder of Highland Stud Cattle. It is a Eco-sustainable 300 acre property located in Southeast Queensland. All animals are friendly, quiet and bred for Queensland conditions.


Farmer Jules and her daughters Jess and Haylee live on the property and enjoy spending their days with their hairy coos. They now breed registered Highland Stud stock as well as highland x sussex crossbred cattle. We have recently started an embryo transfer program and are looking forward to world class genetics.


Our Highland cattle are either sold to other highland breeders who are looking for purebred registered breeding stock. We sell our crossbred weaners and purebred steers to farmers who want a few grass-eaters, first time cattle owners and bnb owners who what quiet, halter trained animals with all the hard work done.

Meet some of our favourites


​Heidi (and her mum Lorna) were the first to join our family many years ago. She has a very quiet temperament and has been a natural mum to many of our purebred calves including twins last year.

White Cloud

White cloud has a cheeky character and when you’re out in the paddocks, she’s the one who is running towards you. She was raised in our animal nursery and often forgets she now has big horns when she comes up for a pat or a treat.


Cupcake​ is one of Heidi’s twin calves. She is Haylee’s first highland heifer and was awarded Reserve Champion at the Marburg and District Show in 2019. Haylee is a Junior Member of the Australian Highland Cattle Society.


Cadbury is Farmer Jules’ favourite cow. She is very playful and loves attention! Sussex is a rare breed of cattle and Cadbury is one of the few on the east coast of Australia. She loves kids patting and brushing her and often just hangs out with Jules.
