WHY
SHORTHORN

Beef Shorthorns offer many competitive advantages to the farmer striving to run a profitable beef enterprise in today’s challenging times. If you are looking for a modern, functional suckler cow that is easy calving, milky and docile then the Beef Shorthorn will provide a solution.

By introducing a Beef Shorthorn bull into your herd, he will leave replacement heifers which combine all the maternal characteristics you are looking for. Most modern farmers will agree that fertility, milkiness, docility, and longevity are the key attributes that are desirable in a cow. When you couple that with an animal that is also a natural grazer you have all the ingredients for profitability.
