If they are both in the same herdbook, you can. You will lose the polled designation on the calf however, maybe getting a scurred calf, or just a notation denoting a horn gene.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada

I am not 100% sure of the American herdbook but here in Canada you can. Contrary to what Jason has told you, a calf only has horned or polled on his pedigree based on it's phenotype and not on it's genotype.<br>My family has been breeding Shorthorn's for 6 generations now and we have both polled and horned shorthorns in our herd. You can get a polled or horned calf out of mating a horned cow and polled bull depending on what each animals gentype is.<br> Sincerely,<br> Cam Crogie<br> Glencromar Shorthorns<br> Douglas, Ont.<br> Canada. <br>

> Canada. By all means YES! Our family has been raising Shorthorns since 1932 and some of the best bulls have & still are horned bulls being used. I am a member of the Amarican Shorthorn Assn. and polled cattle have a x before their registration # and @ end of their name to distinguish them.
