Whisper Polled Shorthorns was started in 2007. After an exhaustive search, females were selected with a goal of raising easy keeping, fast growing beef, under grass fed conditions--yet they had to have classic Shorthorn style. They were all purchased privately. We then closed the Modern Shorthorn female side of the herd. All females in our Modern Shorthorn herd trace to 4 of these original cows.

Our entire Modern Shorthorn herd now consists of only Heritage Influenced Shorthorns. Many of our Modern Shorthorn females are utilized as recipients in our embryo transplant program because of their tremendous maternal characteristics and excellent milk production.
