The vital link in the beef production chain

The Whitebred Shorthorn is a completely separate breed from the Beef Shorthorn or Dairy Shorthorn. Whitebred Shorthorns are bred mainly in the border counties of England and Scotland, and although the origin of the breed is somewhat obscure, it is likely that they were derived from the white dual purpose Shorthorn cattle, locally known as the Cumberland Shorthorn.

The Whitebred Shorthorn bull is bred primarily as a crossing bull to mate with any breed of female, but principally with the Galloway to produce the noted Blue Grey, and the Highland producing a Cross Highlander, the progeny being well suited to the full range of British climatic conditions.

The Whitebred Shorthorn Association is a member of the National Beef Association and is supported by the Rare Breed Survival Trust.

About The Breed

The Whitebred Shorthorn (often refered to as the White Shorthorn) is bred primarily as a crossing bull to mate with any breed of female, but principally with the Galloway to produce the noted Bluegrey, and the Highland producing a Cross Highlander, the progeny from both these crosses being well suited to the full range of British climatic conditions, and able to utilise the poorest of grazing land.
