New "Old" Heritage Shorthorn GeneticsGrass-fed Genetics
Fortunately for the Shorthorn breed there exists a treasure trove of old Shorthorn semen to build a new, better Shorthorn. Hindsight is 20/20 and it certainly applies to the Shorthorn breed. There have been multiple cycles in their evolvement over the last 250 years, many of which have been negative. Whispering Hills Farm has accumulated a large, diverse stockpile of Shorthorn semen that goes back almost 70 years. This store of semen, from many of the best Shorthorn bulls that have ever existed, is being utilized in our breeding and IVF programs. Because of the availability and implementation of new technology we have the opportunity to develop a breeding and IVF program that supersedes any previous attempt to improve the Shorthorn breed. By evaluating individual bulls and their progeny, WHF has the ability to combine the “best of the best” historical Shorthorn genetics and make them available to today’s Shorthorn breeder. We believe the Whispering Hills Farm Heritage Shorthorn cow herd is the finest anywhere based on pedigree, quality, and health. No other herd has the rare pedigree mix that constitutes the WHF herd.
A major goal of WHF has been to increase the genetic diversity of Heritage Shorthorns through the utilization of quality Heritage Shorthorn bulls from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Because we have over 125 Heritage Shorthorn bulls in our semen inventory from this era, we can offer a wide variety of quality New "Old" Heritage Shorthorn Genetics that will benefit any Shorthorn breeder. Utilizing our elite cow herd, we can provide quality Heritage Shorthorns that meet the needs of any breeder whether you are looking for that special herd bull, adding to your cow herd, or embarking on starting a new herd. The Heritage Shorthorn genetic pool that WHF possesses allows for the production of Beef, Dairy, and Dual Purpose Heritage Shorthorns.
