Torgerson's white with a black nose Pearl (sired by Clark) was long before that.  1975 I think.  She did a ton of winning.  We had an occasional black nosed Shorthorn back in the 60's.  Nothing new.

924 was probably the most important well known one by far But i saw a Dividends impact x Black nose female in Texas that was a real sow around 1993 WAY AHEAD OF HER TIME O0

I recall hearing of her and probably saw her at the NAILE?  An Improver according to DigitalBeef.

Another Margie from the same family was also flushed a lot--AF SHANNON MARGIE 924.

/// Hey Dale remember the Black Nose Margie of Aldens? She was one the better ones that came along Dont remember if she was an Improver but she was very close to the original Shannon Margie who may also have had Galloway-and certainly began a line of Shorthorns that are least as relevant today as 45 plus years ago  O0

Maybe shoulder structure would be a more accurate clue?


straight shoulders mean legs can't flatten forward making the calf more of a vertical obstacle coming through the chute. i'd venture to say this is probably the most underestimated trait for calving ease[size=78%].[/size]

Barkhurst bought him and his brother from Canada.

They were from a flush.

The brother was not preferred or collected.

Three Icon calves here. Two heifers and a bull. Two baldies and a black out of solid black cows. Best one is a Maintainer out of an unregistered Daddy's $ cow, but they're all pretty good. BW's were reasonable (80's-low 90's). I'll use him again.
