Registr. # 3261776 Birth date: 02/26/1965
Sire: CORONET MAX LEADER # 2887446
Dam: ROSEWOOD CORONITA 56TH # 3115123
TPS Leader 61st was half brother to Leader 21st, since Coronet Max Leader was their sire. What sets him apart is that he is more of a linebred bull. He was thick with adequate size. He is not well known in the Shorthorn breed today but he has the potential, with proper matings, to propagate positive old Shorthorn genetics.

He was line bred with Scottshill Major Clark on both sides of his pedigree. He was a large stretchy bull that “brought a lot to the table”. He added size while maintaining milk and productivity.
Registr. # 3538036 Birth Date: 01/15/1970
Sire: SCOTTSHILL MAJOR CLARK #3536807
Dam: THORNWOOD ROYAL DOT # 297556
Thornwood Major is another Graham Land & Livestock bull that was used extensively in the 70’s. 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.
