They are fabulous examples of Heritage or Native Shorthorns. For more information on Heritage Shorthorns, please visit, www.heritageshorthorn.org/
These two calves are a combination of old genetics on the dam side and new genetics on the sire side. In combining them, you get the best of both time periods as you see in these calves. They are both sired by a new bull from Australia called "Meatpacker". The mother to the bull calf (pictured top left) is a Mandalong Super Flag (x4150899) and the mother to the heifer calf (top right) is a Kenmar Ransom 32z(x4160201). Both of these calves were bred and owned by Diamond K Ranch of Twin Bridges, MT.
