Shorthorns have been a part of our family since the mid '90s when I bought a steer for my nephew, Derek Orth of Lancaster, Wisconsin. Derek began growing his herd while working on his family's dairy farm. I bought my first shorthorns in 2004 from Gene Elston and K-KIM. I bought another show heifer from Gene in 2005. She went on to win several shows including Champion ShorthornPlus at the Iowa Beef Expo. I added two more cows from Schrag's in 2005 and another from K-KIM in 2008. In 2007, I teamed up with Dennis Brady to purchase a Myrtle Bo heifer from Sullivan's Maternal Legends sale. In 2008, Derek's family built a 200 cow dairy barn and he decided he just didn't have time for the Shorthorns while trying to milk 200 jerseys 3 times a day and the never-ending other chores. I bought what was left of Derek's ''Big Red'' herd and brought them to Iowa. I am now up to fifteen cows. Most of my cows carry the SULL, SS, CF, KKIM, & V8 prefixes. I think its a pretty good place to build from.
Thanks to Brady for all the help and to Arlan & Sue Hollenbeck for the continued support and confidence in the FUTURE!!!
