Haukabø farm

Haukabø Angus and Highland Cattle.


 
 

To us animal welfare and sustainable use of land and local recourses are important. 

The farm has about 12 acres cropland and about 370 acres used for pasture.

Please contact us for more information.


  • Breeding Aberdeen Angus since 1998 and Scottish Highland Cattle since 2005.
  • We get about 30-35 calves per year, where most of these are Angus.
  • Sell live animals for breeding to many parts of Norway. Our cattle are known to be calm and well socialized. 
  • We also sell our own meat.


  • Every summer we split our cows into 5-7 different herds. Their “job” is to graze and keep the landscape open in various locations around Vinje. Every herd is from 3-50 animals big, depending on the area. They are very popular among locals and tourists. One of the ranges where they graze is located 850-1500 meters above sea level!
  • Our vision is that Haukabø farm should be a farm with good animal welfare, positive experiences and room for growth and development.
Our year

February – April: Calving!

May: Insemination and putting up fence for the summer.  

June: Pasture-time! And more fencing.

June and beginning of July:  Mostly grazing/pasture in town.

July – September: Move the cows to graze in the mountains.

September – October: The cows go back to pasture in town. We take down the fence in the mountains.

October: The animals come back to the farm, preg-checking, sorting and weaning. Take down the rest of the fence rom the summer.

November – January: Socializing the animals. Planning next year.

Heilt innafor, og nødvendig, å starte 8.juli i ulltøy, frå topp til tå😳, og ein runde i massasjestolen. I dag skal eg vera "konsulent"😜 for Gjerdeteam nr 1, Annette, Malene og Sigve. Då spørs det om me klarer å henge opp og fixe 8 km gjerde. ... See MoreSee Less

God arbejdslyst. Her er der ingen hegnsteams der skal holdes i gang. I stedet nyder vi udsigten fra campingpladsen på Thurø. Det er helt uvant at være afsted med campingvognen uden at have køer med.

Gjerdt rundt støylen i dag. Snoen hadde herja fælt med både stolpar og isolatorar. Var godt å ha med 3 gode gjerderar. Kaldt som fy, 950 moh.
Neste veke starter samme gjengen på dei ca 8 km med tråd som skal gjerde inn utmarka.
