Beef Shorthorn Bulls

Woodstock Bower Farm presents our Wenmar Beef Shorthorns. Our aim is to breed quality bulls suitable to carry the breed forward onto the next generation. Wenmar Beef Shorthorn cattle are targeted to produce stock capable of producing quality beef in today’s marketplace. View our range of current beasts below. See our past herd sires section for bulls which were previously part of our herd.

Photo taken September 2015. Wenmar Hakon is out of one of the most consistent Canadian sires. In recent years his sire, DF pure Gold, has produced some tremendous progeny for Shadybrook farms in Quebec. I visited Shadybrook and viewed Pure Gold's progeny which were big stretchy milky cows, along with a tremendous 3 year old bull SBF Platinum their senior stock bull. Hakon follows his father's traits being a quiet, young thick bull with good locomotion. He has now been used successfully on a small group of our cows during 2015, and will now be retained as a future herd sire.

Photo taken June 2015. Wenmar Harkin is the arguably the best Beefeater son that we have bred, he was a tremendous growthy calf and has continued to grow. His dam goes back to some of our original foundation cattle when we where based on the Isle of Man. We are retaining his sister in our herd. We have used Harkin on some of our cows and will likely retain him unless sold privately as a shorthorn herd sire.

Photo taken November 2015. Wenmar Hanley is very likely to be retained here at Woodstock Bower Farm as a future herd sire. He is arguably one of the best Beefeater sons that we have bred. Hanley's dam calved twin heifers in 2013 and she reared the two of them without any difficulty. In 2014 she produced Hanley and in 2015 she produced probably our best heifer which shows the strength of the female line's mothering ability. We currently plan to retain Hanley within our herd.

Photo taken June 2015. Wenmar Harman is out of our tremendous Nonpariel female line. His dam was recently sold joining a new herd in Ireland. We have a number of Harman's sisters and cousins in our herd. He has already been used selectively with us and other than the number of his siblings and cousins, we would have considered retaining him long term for our own use.
