DL, What is the protocol for dealing with possible genetic defects in the shorthorn breed? Are there any forms for submission of the information? Any directions for submitting the DNA? And then who does it get sent to? These things would make it easier to submit the information if it is not available.

Thanks for the time and effort that you have put into this situation.

Your right aj. I guess we don't know what we don't know. And we won't know until we know. Hopefully everything works out with the least amount of damage. My buddies cow was a angus and shorthorn cross heifer that had the calf with the bad wheels.

I see these kids buying TH carriier cows and hoping to build a herd. Most of it is about the show end of this business and they want to have the popular bloodlines and expect to raise calves out of these cows. Some do make cows but the genetic traits carry on in the daughters. I hope none of them experience what I did but the writing is on the wall. The best show heifers we had never did make good cows and the kids will learn this in years to come if they stay in the cattle business long enough.

My thoughts and only that. I worked to raise a registered herd of Shorthorn cows by breeding to two of the hottest bulls at the time. Double stuff and Outrageous. I don't need to tell the oldtimers what happend. TH Ruined my work and I ended up either shipping or selling the balance of the herd.No one? knew what was causing the calves to have the defformities and I seen all of the affects of TH born calves. I checked the water, feed, pasture, supplements and everything else that we could have thought. Well eventually I was out of having a herd of cows and took a substantial beating on the cost of it all.
This looks to be like the same story. My buddy had a heifer calf born this year that had the same exact issue with her hind legs. Waaaaayyyyyy too much in common here. Waaaayyyy too much money can be lost by the identity of the issue quickly.
But I doubt that anyone really cares about the money that someone else looses just there own.
Just my opinion I am not looking at kicking the hornets nest!

I like to give credit where credit is due. I am not only impressed by the attitudes and growth of a couple of Rodman calves this year but they seem to have alot of style and show potential to them also. Here is a picture of a Rodman/Eskimo Leggs/Who Made Who Heifer that we had this year out of a first calf heifer. She was born in February and has been cycling regular now for a couple of months.

Dam and Calf Pictured Below

Don't mean to take over LittleHeifers thread but I will give you some info. Calves are not born early and the bulls have been from 70-75 lbs. The biggest one that I ever had was a 90lb Bull calf out of a simmy cow. She went two weeks over and was a real big Arapahoe cow. He grew like a weed and weighed in at 900lbs in November from a March calving date. Heifers are about the sameweight but more feminine in build. Calves are real nice fronted with a smooth shoulder. We have used him alot on black cattle with great results. I beleive he is a real curve bender from Birth to finish weights and the cattle are smooth made. Most have great attitudes. His heifers have been able to raise a calf and breed back AI after 60 days. I never have felt obligated to use him because he is in the tank but his calves have always drawn attention at my place and we did breed a couple of nice heifers to him this year. They are a Who Made Who x Simmy and a Naughty Pine x Maine. Both were showed this last year and I am looking forward to some February calves. Attached is the first calf I had out of him and a first calf Simmy Heifer. She was 70lbs when born. One thing I have never mentioned is that when the picture of Eskimo Leggs was take he had bred aroung 30 cows that year and was sent down to Missouri to be collected. He still held nice condition and was an agressive breeder.
