Mission Statement

"To spread knowledge, foster passion, and encourage stewardship for the preservation of the Highland breed."​
   Our Association has prospered and grown because of the participation and efforts of our members who have spurred an interest and awareness of the Highland breed. Your participation and input will propel our further growth and success. This is a “members'” organization and we heartily encourage ideas and suggestions.
   The Officers and Directors are always at your service and we can assure you that current members are always willing to assist you with any questions that you may have pertaining to the care and breeding of Highland Cattle. A directory of officers and directors can be found below and in the front of each issue of “The Chanter,” our tri-annual newsletter. 
  As our events are scheduled throughout the Northeast, we all have an opportunity to meet each other and to participate in person. We can all say that these events are an absolute pleasure and we all have a great time sharing cattle stories, ideas and friendship. We look forward to your membership and seeing you at our next meeting.

Once complete please send it to our Secretary/Treasurer Erin Spring, with the membership fee of $40, payable to NEHCA.
