November 2018 News

The HSS custom calendars for 2019 are finally a reality. They are full size (81/2” x 11”), full color, spiral bound wall calendars which feature both historic and modern Shorthorn themed photos. The photos in this year’s inaugural calendar include many which were submitted by HSS members to the HSS Photo Contest. Photos include ones submitted by the following people:

Chris & Serena Blotter, Rich & Katie Forrest, John Hendrickson, Winifred Hoffman, Ralph Larson, Bert Moore, Dave & Diane Robertson, Joe Schallberger, Marcia Shaver, Stanley Ward, Katie & Shaun White

The pages in this calendar are guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face. The pictures below are a few sample pages from this 2019 Calendar.

All of the labor to design, format, & order these calendars was donated, so the price of the calendars reflects an amount barely over the total production and shipping costs. The calendars can be ordered for $14.75 each via the HSS online Store Page with payment online, or ordered via an email request to the HSS office, with payment by a mailed check.

This is also a good time to order Heritage Shorthorn vests, sweatshirts, and tote bags from the HSS Store page so they will arrive in time for Christmas gifts. All profits from the Store sales are dedicated to the HSS fund for running national Heritage Shorthorn promotional ads.

Many new ads have been posted in the last month on the various HSS Ads Pages. These pages continue to be the focal point of many visitors to the HSS website. Thanks to the increasing number of paid Breeder Ads, HSS expects to expand its national advertising budget for Heritage Shorthorns in 2019.

On January 1, 2019 HSS will publish the first of what will be bimonthly articles about different aspects of the Heritage Shorthorn business written by prominent cattlemen. We are excited about this new endeavor and believe members will find the articles quite interesting.

October 2018 News

HSS apologizes for not publishing this month’s update on October 1st but we ran into computer problems while traveling abroad and could not get the Monthly Update to upload properly.

The HSS 2019 Calendar will be available to order starting Nov. 1st. We will have sample pages and pricing available at that time.


This is a good time of the year to order Heritage Shorthorn vests, sweatshirts, &/or tote bags as a Christmas gift for yourself or for someone else who is passionate about Shorthorns. Visit the HSS Store Page to see what is available for colors & sizes. Remember, all proceeds go into the HSS advertising budget for national promotion of Heritage Shorthorns.

HSS has contracted with Progressive Cattleman Magazine to run an ad next spring to promote Heritage Shorthorns to commercial cattle breeders. We believe this will be the first ad run in this magazine by any Shorthorn organization. It reaches over 55,000 cattlemen every month across the USA. HSS is currently looking at additional advertising venues and we will have further information in the coming months. HSS believes advertising is key to attracting new buyers of Heritage Shorthorns. We want to again thank members who are buying paid advertising on the HSS website as this is allowing HSS to get the word out on how Heritage Shorthorns can be incorporated into a variety of cattle operations.

Several other projects are in the works at HSS which will be announced in the next 2-3 months —these should benefit members and hopefully encourage sales of Heritage Shorthorns.
