THE SHORTHORN BREED

The Shorthorn breed is truly unique, from their distinctive roan colour, to their rich breed history and most importantly, the wonderful community of breeders, there is nothing else quite like a Shorthorn.

The key to the Shorthorn breeds advantage lies in their balanced genetic profile, driven by market participation that has been developed and refined, after more than 200 years of genetic selection under Australian conditions.

Since 1800, Australian cattle producers have turned to the Shorthorn breed to fulfill their genetic requirements; maternal efficiency, effective growth and carcass excellence.

From the romance of the outback to the legends of the high country, Shorthorn cattle were integral in building the Australian Beef industry, helping to feed and grow a nation.

Todays Shorthorn breeders are progressive and innovative, driven by the same passion to deliver outstanding performance and create value within the supply chain.

The Shorthorn breed demonstrates what happens when a rich history meets a bright future.
