The Big Show / Bowman's Abernethy
« on: August 05, 2021, 10:49:23 AM »
To highlight the rapidly expanding genetic base of Heritage Shorthorns throughout the USA & Canada, the Heritage Shorthorn Society (HSS) has a new website page called "Calf of the Month".  A variety of calves recently sired by quality Heritage Shorthorn bulls from the 1960-1980 time period will be featured on the HSS website (www.heritageshorthorn.org).  The first calf featured is sired by by Bowman's Abernethy (yes it is spelled with an e).  Bowman's Abernethy was used by the Kiblers in Washington and traces back to the old Grain Belt herd in Washington.

Heritage Shorthorn breeders are now producing calves from many of the best bulls from the the 1960-1980 time period rather than letting the semen of these bulls just sit in a few individual's semen tanks.  Shorthorn enthusiasts would be surprised with the options now available through Heritage Shorthorn breeders to access rare Shorthorn genetics that can have a "hybrid vigor affect" on Modern Shorthorns-the possibilities are endless.  If you are interested in the genetics of a particular old Shorthorn bull a free Cattle Wanted or Semen Wanted ad can be placed on the HSS website to potentially put you in contact with a Heritage Shorthorn breeder using those genetics.

The Big Show / Heritage/Native Shorthorn Bull Listing
« on: December 03, 2019, 11:25:53 AM »
For those interested in Heritage/Native Shorthorns there is a list of all Shorthorn bulls currently Verified as Heritage/Native in the reference section on the Heritage Shorthorn Society (HSS) website (www.heritageshorthorn.org). Over 760 bulls from the USA, Canada, Australia, and Great Britain are recorded.  Only bulls born after 1955 that have gone through a vetting process to determine they are 100% full blood Shorthorns by pedigree, and have only ancestors that can be traced to the original 1822 Coates Herdbook, are listed.

The original vetting was done by the American Milking Shorthorn Society through their Native program with additional bulls contributed to the list by HSS.  An updated vetting procedure will be available through HSS starting January 1st, 2020 that will be simpler, quicker, and less costly.  Those interested in having their bulls registered Heritage can apply at that time.

Gary Kaper (Kaper Cattle Co.-Wolf Ridge Shorthorns) has a new article in the Cattle Viewpoints section on the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org).  The article is titled "Laying The Foundation For A Production Focused Cow Herd".  He goes through the steps necessary to develop a quality purebred cow herd that has the traits which the commercial cattle breeder is looking for today.  Gary explains how purebred breeders can target those traits to produce Shorthorns that the commercial cattle breeder can utilize.
