Blackburn Herd of Whitebred Shorthorns

The Blackburn Herd of Whitebred Shorthorns are bred for their ability to thrive and milk well on our hill ground in the Scottish Borders.

Whitebred Shorthorn Blackburn Twinkle
Blackburn Twinkle - Champion Autumn 2012 - 7,000gns

The Whitebred Shorthorn is a very docile traditional breed and has the ability to thrive on poor grazing in harsh conditions. The cows receive only hay or silage throughout the winter.

A testament to their longevity is Murtholm Holly 2nd who reared a bull calf in 2004 at 16 years.

Blackburn bulls have been sold to cross with both the Galloway to produce the noted Blue-grey and the Highland producing the Cross Highlander.
