Native "Heritage" Shorthorn FoundationGrass-fed Genetics
Purebred Shorthorns can be broken into two groups, Modern and Native "Heritage". Given our concern for preserving purebred genetics, developing a quality group of Native "Heritage" Shorthorns was a natural evolution of our Polled Shorthorn herd. After visiting several Native "Heritage" Shorthorn herds we decided to purchase a group of heifers that were selected with the goal of raising easy keeping, fast growing beef, while maintaining the family milk cow tradition of classic Dual Purpose Milking Shorthorns. Most importantly they had to be able to do this under grass fed conditions. We expect this group to further evolve as we employ our rigid standards of selection in conjunction with the semen we have from several of the truly great Shorthorn bulls of the 50's, 60's, and 70's.
Currently we are using a son of Meadowbrook Chieftain the 9th, Whisper "Royal Chief", along with several other classic old bulls for artificial insemination. Check with us for updates on the sires of the calves we have for sale.
