SHORTHORN BEEF

“The breed that built Australia.”

The Shorthorn breed keeps the oldest breed registry in the world and Shorthorn females first arrived in Australia in 1800, imported by William Kent. In 1825 the first registered Shorthorn cattle arrived in Australia, imported by Potter McQueen, Scone, NSW.In December of the same year AACO also imported pure Shorthorn cattle. By 1890, Shorthorn cattle accounted for 50% of all temperate cattle and nearly 100% of all cattle in the difficult Northern climate.

Today’s Shorthorn cattle are noted for their excellent maternal abilities, temperament, growth and carcass quality, particularly marbling.

It is their balanced, multi-trait performance, which allows Shorthorn cattle to influence profitability by improving all the traits of economic importance, not just a few.

For cross breeding, their multi-trait performance and complementarity makes Shorthorns almost unparalleled in their ability to add profit. Shorthorns form the basis of over 40 breeds worldwide.

homeimageShorthorn breeders are progressive and innovative, forming one of Australia’s first, large scale, breed based, progeny test programs, the Durham Research and Development program, fast tracking genetic gain within the breed.

Shorthorn cattle are in demand today, both as pure bred and cross bred cattle, renowned for their carcass quality and on feed performance and efficiency. Shorthorn cattle suit a wide variety of markets, creating flexibility for producers marketing options.

Shorthorn cattle are bred to solve problems, not create them, and have the proven ability to generate ….. a better bottom line!
