Highland Cow Zoom Meeting
If you want a brilliant video call then simply rent Mac, the Highland Cow to attend your meeting. Imagine the surprise and delight your guests, family or friends will have when a real live Highland Bull joins your video call.
Mac is a super friendly, one tonne, hairy Highland Cattle Bull. He's four years old and loves nothing better than a zoom call as he gets to eat his favourite granny smiths. He lives at Northlands Farm and his friends are goats, Alpacas and miniature donkeys. Most of the day he's out in the field eating grass but when he's on a zoom call, he comes right up to the fence and stares at all your guests. His enormous 1.6m wide horns are seriously impressive and are used to forage for grass when there's deep snow.
Helping Northlands Rescue Donkeys
At Northlands Farm we are raising funds for a new paddock for our rescue donkeys and so all the Animals at the farm have agreed to "chip in" by allowing you to meet them in your Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Webex calls. Your call will help us not only look after the rescue Donkeys and Miniature Pigs we have at the farm but will help us with our Donkey Paddock project
What to expect
Your Cow Zoom Meeting with one of our superstar cast of animals will last 5 minutes during your video call. It's best to ensure you have everyone on the call when your furry friend dials in and so its best to choose a time after your call has started.

Frequently Asked Questions
1). How do I book?
A - Simply decide which farm animal you'd like to turn up in your meeting, or which virtual tour you'd like and click Book now, Choose a date/time and then we'll ask you some questions about your event and your contact info. You then add payment details and then click "Schedule Event". We will send you a confirmation email.
2) Do I need my meeting link and password before I book.
A - Ideally its best if you set up your Zoom, Webex, Google Meets, Microsoft teams meeting first and then you can add all the information to your booking. If you don't have your meeting details, no problem, simply send them to firstname.lastname@example.org later.
3) Why can't I book in the evening?
A - The farm animals love to rest at night and when the sun goes down, it's time for them to chill out, have an evening snack and flick on the TV before bed. Well maybe not the TV but you know what we mean.
4) Why can't I book next month?
A - We can only take bookings 30 days in advance but if you do have a date in mind in the future, do bookmark our site and check back nearer the time.
5) Will the farm animal attendence disrupt our meeting?
A- Errrm, yes it probably will as your guests might be surprised to suddenly be rubbing shoulders with a Goat or a Donkey on the call but we do stay on mute throughout to ensure your meeting stays flowing.
6) What will everyones reactions be like?
A - Well in our experience you'll have people roaring with laughter. Some uncontrollably. You'll definitely be the person that made everyone's day.
7) It was an incredible experience and everyone loved it but how do I trump the goat experience?
A - Well, Mac our Highland Cow is probably the ultimate experience but don't wear red. We don't want a bull on the rampage (only kidding). For special occasions why not try one of our Virtual Farm Tours which are either 15 Minute (silent) or 30 Minute (Fully interactive with Q&A)
8) What are you raising funds for?
A- We rescue miniature pigs and donkeys and are currently raising funds for a new donkey paddock and donkey shelter. All our animals have agreed to "chip in and offer their zoom services" so give them a high five on the call if they behave.
