September 2018 News

HSS is seeing a shift in the demographics of visitors to the website.  Even more visitors to the website are focusing on the Cattle for Sale and Breeder’s Ads pages.  As the fall cattle selling season unfolds, list your Shorthorns for sale on the HSS website (free to members) so you can receive the national exposure which HSS provides.

For those not familiar with “The Shorthorn World” magazine it was the precursor of the current “Shorthorn Country” magazine now published through the American Shorthorn Association.  What set “The Shorthorn World” apart from many current Shorthorn publications was the numerous articles included in each issue that discussed all aspects of raising Shorthorns.  Most of the articles were written by Shorthorn breeders and contained helpful information that the average breeder could use.  Starting January 1, 2019 as an additional service to Shorthorn breeders and in the tradition of “Shorthorn World” HSS will be initiating bi-monthly articles written by prominent Shorthorn breeders on topics relevant to most HSS members.

Bert Moore is continuing to add information in the Shorthorn History Section.

HSS is creating a 2019 wall calendar which highlights interesting “old time” and “modern” Shorthorn pictures.  It includes photos submitted by many of our members.  It will be available for purchase later this fall.  Details to follow in next month’s update.
