So, for tenderness and marbling, any suggestion for molecular markers?
Igenity is a good source?
Will analise some animals and wish not expend time and money on non accurate tests.

DM in Shorthorn can came from Chianina and Maines.
UK Shorthorn are full of DM, they used Maine Anjou massivelly as well as some NA genetics with Maine, as Trump on ancestors.
Here, I inspected some calves for register, found 3 DM. Descarded!
Sired by a canadian bull, that show a strong muscle on back.

You've got that backwards - my understanding is that the double muscling in the Maines came from the Durham Shorthorn cattle that were used to create the Maine Anjou breed. That is also where the Belgian Blue got there double muscling. So the cattle in the UK may have gotten it from the Maines that were bred back in, but there was probably some still in their own population.

As to the Canadian bulls siring double muscling - yes there are a few known in very popular bloodlines.

Agree, it's possible. As some DM animals are appearing on Normande too. Also can be an atavic gene hidden on European population - France, Belgian and The Netherlands.

By the way, with high influx genetics in and out on Shorthorn, we can reach to a point that to ask ....How was first created, the egg or the chicken?

In my world, a more tender product equals happier customers which lead to more customers.
In order to find a niche, your product has to stand out.
Tenderness is above all else critical to a good eating experience


Shorthorn must to got to origin.
A maternal breed with great meat quality.
A breed that can insert docility and milking hability, being an usefull breed for F1 producers. But, also with a potential - not extreme potential - for weight gain and carcass shape.....but, the point is TENDERNESS.

Here were I live we love a meat wit a good fat cover and now, marbling is the word. I think that marbling is being so much superestimated, the point is tenderness.

Marbled meat is great for barbecue, for some special kind of kitchen, but the daily meat must to be TENDER!

So, I ask you all....what is your choice, a marbled non tender meat, or a tender no so marbled one?

I did not ever use Enticer, as I did not like the way his offspring sloped off from hooks to pins. I was told by very good authority ( by a man who was involved in raising Enticer) that his dam was the Reserve National Champion Maine female in the US a few years before. This was a trait pretty common in Maine cattle in that era, so I am tending to agree with what he told me. Unfortunately, this type of thing happened in many breeds in that day, as it was before DNA testing. The only tool available to verify purity was blood typing, and it was far from being totally accurate. I remember talking with the head of the blood typing lab at Ohio State, ar the Graham Land and Cattle dispersal in Minnesota, and he confirming that most breeds were infusing cattle from other breeds. He said that some Milking Shorthorn blood types could slip through the blood tuping tests in Angus and that they had found 7 full blood Maine bulls that blood typed as purebred Shorthorns. I also remember getting a phone call from a well known Angus breeder in that era, asking me if I knew where I could find semen from McKee's Matchless Dairyman, a red Milking Shorthorn bull. This guy told me that this bull sired solid black calves when used on Angus cows and they also blood typed as purebred Angus. This wasn't just a Shorthorn thing. I believe the advancements in the past few years, with DNA testing, have cleaned up a lot of crap that was happening.

Great. A clear answer. Good!
Wish more info like that, on both road sides (breeds).
Sure not all are like to open the black secrets!

Maybe the old lessons on cattle breeding for look a masculine head on bulls can again return.
My first view is for lenght and meat cover on back.
Numbers and heads are wast time if the are no meat on the back, deep ribes and long loin!

By the way!!
Who is Kodiak?
It's a Maine, a Chi-Maine?
What a hell is this bull?

Here are a couple of Bison we saw at Elk Island Park on a drive through last September. They evidently have a herd of Plains Bison and herd of Wood Bison but I have no idea which herd was in the section we drove through. There were several bulls along the road and a larger herd of cows and calves in one group and a group of young bulls in another. I'm not sure if a genetic defect would survive in relatively small herds. It should certainly show up if it existed.

On nature....a deformed calf is a easy dinner for wolves.
Natural selection.
Not necessary use a pedigree bull carrier only for fashion, or worst, a non informed carrier!

As I understand it the Herford cattle have a few "diluter" gene carriers. When bred to Angus......you can get grey calves. I wonder if this is a bleed over.......from Simmental accidentally being introduced to the Herford breed?

Accidentally was the best world to explain!
Too many accidents on Herefords, Angus......on Shorthorn too, but are official accidents!

He doesn't look like I would have expected when you see the farms on Facebook. I expected shorter bodied softer made. More moderate structure. His NAILE pic looks long bodied and as Ryan said very tubular lacking in muscle definition.

I known the Argentinian Shorthorn. He isn't a good exemplar of the breed there.

not to hijack the esteemed librarians thread but I have long pondered why the Luing has not showed its presence in the contemporary show calf genre...

My experience with Lincoln Reds was positive... I had two cows out of Green Row Everlawn (or everready? Green row sumthin...) and they were superb cows. However I remember as a child Ralph Stirm had some LRs and while they were stout and soggy, they had horrible bags and sloppy sheaths on the bulls.

Yes, depending of bull, we can get outstanding animals or just mongrels without class!

Interisting pedigree.
A little bit inbreding added to some old genetics.
My perfect formula!
 (clapping) (clapping) (clapping) (clapping)

I saw a video from him.
Looks better there.
Pics are a trap sometimes.

Testicles are a real problem on Argentinian Shorthorn.

Very differemt of what I can imagine!
