At the turn of the nineteenth century Shorthorns were the breed of choice for many cattle ranches in the Upper Columbia Valley. These ranches expected their cattle to be profitable under conditions we might consider “rustic”.


We believe shorthorn cattle have an important role to play in Canada’s livestock industry. Their docility, ease of calving, strong maternal instincts, early maturity, and longevity are traits that contribute to a producers success.
