Duvldbon, Prop., Obion, Tenn. * LIVE STOCK AND DAIRY * BREEDS OF CATTLE—III. Something About the Leading Beef Breeds—Shorthorn History and Cliara cteristies. By Tait Butler. orn,GiALi beet breeds which I have become popular in this -i- country are the Hereford, Ab erdeen-Angus and Shorthorn. The Galloways, while a special-purpose beef breed, have never become nu merous in any section of America. There are both horned and polled Herefords, although the latter have never taken a prominent place in beef production. The Shorthorns are also—certain families of them, at least—sometimes classed both as a beef breed and as dual-purpose an imals. A polled variety—known as Polled Durhams—also exists and has achieved considerable prominence, although differing little from the come the most popular and numer ous beef breed. The great adaptability of the Shorthorn to different climates and conditions is shown by their exten sive distribution all over the globe and the predominating influence which the breed exerts in many beef producing countries. A large major ity of the beef animals, of special beef breeding, which are found in the large markets of this country are Shorthorns or Shorthorn grades. In color, Shorthorns are red or white, or some combination of these two colors, mixed colors, or red and white spotted and roans, being com mon. The red-roan color In cattle is I TWO BEAUTIFUL SHORTHORN HEIFERS. standard Shorthorn, except In the absence of horns. For all practical purposes, how ever, there are but the three special purpose beef breeds of sufficient prominence in American beef pro duction to merit our special consid eration: Hereford, Aherdeen-Angus and Shorthorn. In the South the Shorthorn is still frequently spoken of as “Durham." The breed is not now known by that name among up-to-date live stock men. The old .iame was Durham or Shorthorn Durham, but the Durham has long since become obsolete, ex cept as applied to the polled variety. Shorthorns have been in this coun try nearly 100 years and have be said to be positive evidence of Short horn blood. In the South one may hear the pure breeding of an animal of this breed questioned on the ground that it is not pure red or nearly so. While this Is absurd, it may be stated that In the past there have been times when the red color was so much more popular, even with breeders, that the breed suffered ns a consequence. While red Is still preferred by many, roans especially are generally more popular than In the past. Pure-white Shorthorns are not uncommon, but are generally not as popular as reds, red and white, or roans. Uniformity in color Is al ways desirable and the lack of It in Shorthorns is one of the objections - Registered Hereford And Aberdeen Angus Cattle We have for sale the best bunch of young Bulls and Heifers ever before offered in the South.
