That shorthorn calf could be related to a lot of my herd.. My bull came from Milt Stein on 0 Ave in langley.. he's kinda retired now but raised registered shorthorns
Dont tell me that haha. The shorthorn bull that I used to borrow for a friend killed both of my cows. Now i say that lightly. But he sired 4 calves on my farm, 2 calves were sick, both killed the dam. So he was actually retired.

You may know the guy that i used for my short horns though. You know a guy with the last name Spady?
Nope, Milt would certainly know them though, he was president of the BC shorthorn association for quite some time... that's how I met him.. I was out of work at the time, and in their wisdom, they scheduled the AGM in the middle of calving season, so he needed someone to watch his cows... Ended up doing a fair bit of work for him and buying a bull

Oh wow yes I bet they do know each other. Mr. Spady was big with Short horns for years. He does still breed his show line but now has switched over to a black herd, commercial herd up in 100 mile area. My Angus X Shorthorn is my last shorthorn left on our farm. Never had much luck with them and I always had a hard time selling them. Now I just stick to a black or a dark brown cow of sorts.

I still have 2 very shorthorn looking cows.. I like them but market acceptance is in fact poor around here.. If you get the solid red ones you can do quite well
