Gary was a special person.  His extensive knowledge of Shorthorns, from Milking to Beef, was phenomenal.  Over the years he was a great help to me in answering my questions and giving me advice.  I can never repay the kindness he showed me.  The Shorthorn industry has lost both a remarkable Shorthorn breeder and a remarkable man.  I will miss him. 

The Heritage Shorthorn Society calf of the month is a heifer calf sired by Windholme Robin King.  The heifer shown in the photo that won the 2021 Photo Contest is sired by HHKA Buttercups Prince 20th who also sired Hub's Director.  There is also a new article under Cattle Viewpoints by Dr. Martin Lee about twinning in cattle.  All the aforementioned information is available on the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org).

The Heritage Shorthorn Society has a biographical article on Ralph Larsen the owner of the Y Lazy Y herd in Montana.  He owned the popular Coalpit Creek Leader 6th bull.  If interested look under the Heritage Breeders/Membership section where Ralph is the "Spotlight on Member".

For those interested the Heritage Shorthorn Society October "Calf Of the Month" is a Pleasant Dawn Seal 2nd heifer that was born this spring.  Her dam is a Boa Kae Royal Oak daughter.  She weighed 662# at 205 days in drought grass conditions.  No creep.  Some excellent old Canadian Shorthorn genetics.  Go to www.heritageshorthorn.org and look under the "Calf of the Month".

Bowman's Abernethy was just recently approved for Verified Heritage status.  He has been added to the Verified list.  The Verified list is comprised of Shorthorn bulls (starting in the 1950's) that have gone through a vetting process that documents that all the ancestors in their pedigree are 100% full Shorthorn by pedigree tracing to the original Coates herd book of 1822.  No known outside blood has been added, by pedigree.  A Shorthorn breeder does not have to be a member of the Heritage Shorthorn Society to have a Shorthorn bull verified as Heritage.  Heritage status is equivalent to what AMSS calls native.

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.

Tea for the Tillerman, Clark, Spiro, and Thornwood Major have all tested negative for F94L.  I believe that the problem with F94L started about 1980 with a specific outside Shorthorn bull that was purchased.  Whether the he was all Shorthorn is open to question.  To my knowledge no Heritage Shorthorn bull born prior to 1980 has ever tested positive for F94L.  A list of all the old Shorthorn bulls that have tested negative for TH, PHA, DS, and Myostatin are listed on the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org) under "Bulls Tested Free of Genetic Defects".  Approximately 10-12 bulls will be added to that listed later this year.

For those interested the new "Spotlight On Member" column on the Heritage Shorthorn Society features Wally Klose and Diamond K Shorthorns.  There are also additional pictures of his bull "Harvey Fulton 32A" who has been discussed on this thread and is sired by Kenmar President 26A and is out of a daughter of Kenmar Ransom 32Z.  Harvey is probably the biggest Shorthorn bull in the USA today.  The pictures show Harvey as an eight year old bull.

The Heritage Shorthorn Society has received a donation of books authored by Otis L. Fisher from his daughter Susan Cromer.  These are not reprints.  They are brand new original 1993 books that she had stored.  The books are "Shorthorns Around the World" and "The Story of the Milking Shorthorn in the U.S.".  They are available at a very reasonable price in the Store section of the Heritage Shorthorn Society: www.heritageshorthorn.org/store.

Under the Shorthorn Information section of the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org) there is a comprehensive detailed list of Shorthorn reference books.  Many of these books occaisionaly come up for sale on eBay.  The Heritage Shorthorn Society is constantly adding information to its website and is an excellent place to find historical information on Shorthorns.

All the Columbus semen I am aware of simply has COL as the cane code.  If you go to the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org), a lot of old Shorthorn Heritage bull semen codes are listed in the Shorthorn Information section, under semen codes.  More are added as information is provided to the Heritage Shorthorn Society.

Yes.  Mandalong Super Flag is a Heritage Bull and all his ancestors directly trace back to the Coates 1822 Herdbook.. For those skeptics I had the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory at U C Davis perform a breed specificity test on his semen and he came back 100% Shorthorn.  For those interested there is a complete list of all currently Verified Heritage Bulls on the Heritage Shorthorn Society website (www.heritageshorthorn.org).  Look under the Heritage Bulls dropdown.  Close to 800 bulls are listed from the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK.  There is also a Shorthorn list of all Heritage Shorthorn Bulls that have tested free of TH, PHA, DS, and MYO.  Both lists are regularly updated.

Pictured is a Heritage Shorthorn bull calf sired by Mollie's Defender Adair that is 6 weeks old.  Picture was taken today.  His BW was 62#.  We also have a spring Heritage bull calf sired by Mandalong Super Flag and a Heritage heifer calf sired by Columbus.  Later we will have 2 IVF Heritage bull calves sired by Pleasant Dawn Seal 2nd.
