Heritage "Native" Shorthorn FoundationGrass-fed Genetics
Purebred Shorthorns can be broken into two groups, Modern and Heritage "Native". Given our concern for preserving purebred genetics, developing a quality group of Heritage "Native" Shorthorns was a natural evolution of our Polled Shorthorn herd. After visiting several Heritage "Native" 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 variety of Heritage "Native" bulls including Whisper Royal Chief, HHKA Buttercups Prince 20th, Kenmar Leader 13B, Kinnaber Leader 9th, Kenmar President 26A, Spiro, Butte Lee Leader 45th, and Rosa's Commands 05. Information on all these bulls is available on ShorthornSelectSemen.com. Check with us on the availability of offspring.
