If this bull had been born a heifer, he would not be for sale. His dam is DRC 7142HU that we purchased the fall of 2007 as a replacement heifer calf. I had become very discouraged with my earlier experiences with “mainstream” Shorthorn genetics. They just weren’t the Shorthorn cattle I remembered so fondly from my youth while growing up on a ranch near Cut Bank, MT. The Shorthorn crosses we had back then were just flat good cows. Unfortunately, when man starts selecting animals solely for “looks” or “performance” whether it is dogs, horses, or cattle, “real world” function seldom keeps pace. The foundation set of Shorthorn females we bought from Dover Ranch restored my faith in the breed. We don’t do much ET work here. When we do, it has to be because a cow has spent enough years raising calves to actually prove herself. This bull’s dam has done that. To date, she has never had a physical or health problem. Her feet/leg/udder structure are outstanding. Two of her grandsons are also offered for sale.
