The Shorthorn is a breed of beef cattle known for its versatility, adaptability, and high-quality meat production. They are medium to large-sized cattle with a distinctive red, white, or roan coat color, and are known for their muscular build and excellent meat quality. Shorthorns are known for their docile temperament, making them easy to handle and manage on the farm. They are also known for their milk production capabilities, with some Shorthorns being dual-purpose animals used for both meat and milk production.
