Help Support CattleToday:

Yeah Canada! Thanks for helping us out of the Belt buckle cattle.

80. In 1968-69, a few innovative U.S. breeders found new bloodlines within the British breeds having a propensity for greater lean growth. Western Canada was the initial source of this new genetic material represented here by the Polled Hereford bull, "Predominant 25U," who became a very important sire.
A couple pictures of Predominant 25U the first time they met, about 1967. Phil is about 5'-8" tall. Obviously, frame and width of rump were important visual characteristics!

The Shorthorn breed went to western Canada as well for more frame score in the early 70's and bought the offspring of cattle the Canadians had bought from Missouri and North Dakota 4 to 5 yrs before!
