I added a couple bulls to the tank and missed out on a couple others. I was surprised how much people were willing to pay for the bulls I didn't get. It would be interesting to know where some of the volume buys went and how they plan on using it.

This bred heifer is out of an Ultimate Type cow.

Any thoughts on Anchor?
As good of a female maker that ever walked at occ imo. Just not calving ease for hfrs imo

I keep saying I'll use one of my straws of him on one of my shorthorn donors, but never do. I know it was done back in the day with great success, but no one wanted to pay for them so the F1s simply lived out their days in silence.

I've always believed docility comes at a cost.

My horned cattle often appear smarter than my polled cattle.

I occasionally wonder what being around cows does to the human brain. I no longer wonder what being around too many other humans does to the brain. It's obvious.

I wish I had their sale average.

I expected people to complain about her nose. The calf appears to be a fairly tightly line bred animal.

The Shorthorn Country appears to be nearly begging for high quality pictures that can be used on the cover of the magazine on a regular basis. I wish more commercial breeders would step up to the plate.

Am I correct in believing these "show calves" are actually judged by the abattoir buyers, or their connections, at the shows and that's what drives their more extreme lean meat phenotype?

The Hoffman family in Illinois has been preserving a grazing herd of dutch belted and milking shorthorns for several decades. They also offer a fair amount of semen on bulls of both breeds.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. A decision has been made on the recognition of national shows for January 2022.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met this week during their spring board meeting to make a decision about recognition levels of the Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City, Okla. and National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver, Colo. The AHA Board voted to host the 2022 National Show and National Hereford Sale during the Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City.

The shows and exhibitor surveys were all taken into consideration during this decision. It was decided that Cattlemens Congress in Oklahoma City will host the 2022 National Show and National Hereford Sale, junior show and pen show.

Following Cattlemens Congress, AHA will recognize the NWSS as a Regional Point Show. The AHA will share more information and schedules with its membership and interested parties once both venues have been notified and establish final changes.

i'd say keep the national western out of denver until they balance narratives to be more friendly to all instead of just one narrative.


the left is about choice, but in reality, all they do is eliminate it.

Cattleman's Congress has already scheduled their next show to overlap with the National Western's dates. Oklahoma has committed to supporting the show and claimed it brought in something crazy like 40 million dollars to their economy. A choice now exists, so people will be able to speak with their dollars.

I believe it was the Hereford association who might have threatened to pull out of the National Western all together.

It sells in various online sales in small amounts on a regular basis if you want to try to watch for a bargain. Minnaert usually has a few straws of him in most of his sales and it looks like he's having one tomorrow.

You will see a significant improvement if you delay your timing. ST calls 16-24 acceptable and 18-22 ideal. I've been targeting 18 the last two years with good success.

It looks like I'm one of the few with a daughter in the states. While I did not sample him for growth reasons, her performance was definitely not an issue. If she grows up to look like the pictures of his mature daughters while still being in production at that age I'll wish I had 99 straws left instead of just 9.

I recently found this Muridale Robert daughter with a 69lb Hot Commodity heifer calf. After a few days of observing, it's obvious he did not hurt the cow line's mothering instincts.

I sure wouldn't let average growth epds scare me away from trying him.

Having said that, I do believe there are a lot of shorthorn breeders who do not know how bad their calves would get blown away in the feedlot. Growing too slow and quitting way too early the last few years got a lot of breeders put on the do not buy list. Considering the average herd size, that's probably incorrect and I should say it got a certain color put on the do not buy list.
