Milking Shorthorn

Milking shorthorn are also not so popular here in the U.S. anymore as they once were. They used to be prized for being a dual purpose breed, with good milk production, and fast growing beef cows. Their speckled spots set them apart from the other dairy breeds.

They are strong cattle with good health traits. Their strength is one of the characteristics that make them popular cows for some farms. I’ve found their strength to also translate to their character. They have strong personalities.
