We have around 75 pedigree Beef Shorthorn cows which we manage according to our business-wide breeding philosophy.
Our own Shorthorn bulls are used across our commercial cows to breed replacements and produce prime stock for slaughter. We monitor our cross-bred cows’ performance closely. This data informs breeding decisions in our pedigree herd.
We performance record our Shorthorns on the Breedplan system as well as through our own recording system.
We have tested the calving ease of our Beef Shorthorn heifers by calving them at two since the mid-70s. Importantly, only animals that meet this challenge are able to join the herd.
We regularly have bulls available that are ready to work. If you would like to view these, or to see the commercial system which drives our genetic selection, please do not hesitate to contact us.
