Heritage/Native Shorthorn Semen for Sale

Bull Selection

All bulls offered for sale (that were born after 2005) were raised in a totally grass fed environment with no access to grain or hormones.  Conservative estimates suggest increased weaning weights of 100-150# more and yearling weights of 250-400# more if grain is fed--this should be remembered when comparing our weights to those of other bulls.

*We can provide advice regarding bull semen selection for matching a specific bull to a buyer's Shorthorn needs and objectives.  Initial contact can be via email or phone, but any subsequent follow up will need to be done by phone since email tag just does not work efficiently in discussing what qualities you are seeking to add to your herd.*

Purchase & Shipping Information

Thornwood Major is another Graham Land & Livestock bull that was used extensively in the 1970’s. He was a Red & White, polled bull. He combined muscling with scale, as breeders tried to move beyond the “belt buckle” debacle.  Another important aspect was longevity.  His dam, Thornwood Royal Dot, was flushed at 16 years of age.  Cows with this ability are absent is today’s show-obsessed Shorthorns.

Royal Chief readily exemplifies the true Dual Purpose Shorthorn type.  His sire, Meadowbrook Chieftain 9th, was known for producing quality females.  Royal's dam had an excellent udder and was a large cow for a contemporary Dual Purpose Shorthorn cow.  Her weight varied between 1550# and 1650#.   We are not aware of any semen available anywhere from a son of Meadowbrook Chieftain 9th, so the pedigree/genetics that Royal possesses are truly unique.  We strongly believe his daughters will be outstanding Dual Purpose Shorthorn cows with good milking ability that will work in any cow herd.
