We've had a handful of shorthorn cows over the years. Some were some of our best cows, and some were some of the worst. The bad ones were more of the showy type stuff. They didn't milk very well and they just fall apart when they get turned out to pasture. The good ones though were really good. Raised massive calves every year, and bred back good too. Probably 80-90% of the calves were solid colored. I think if you buy from the right breeders, shorthorns are great addition to any herd.
