Beef and Australian Shorthorn breeding, and cross breeding with compatible bloodlines, has produced high quality cattle in Australia with market demand maintaining premium returns.

Beef Shorthorn breeding in Australia reaches back to the early 1800’s when settlers brought the celebrated British bloodline to pastoralise the country.

The shorthorn industry today is thriving with interest in breeding for stud purposes and increasing commercial herd breeding to satisfy market demand for high quality meat particularly in the export trade.

The Beef Shorthorn Society of Australia provides essential resources for all breeders of Beef Shorthorns, Australian Shorthorns and their derivatives.

From stud breeders intent on protecting the purity of the original bloodline to large herd commercial breeders, all the necessary services and registration requirements are available through this website or by contacting the Society Federal Secretary on 0419 317 990.
