Jilt Family

Wenmar Beef Shorthorns presents our Jilt Family of beef shorthorn cattle. Our aim is to breed quality bulls and heifers suitable to carry the breed forward onto the next generation. Wenmar Beef Shorthorns are members of PCHS, and all our cattle carry a very high health status. We are fully accredited free of IBR, BVD and Lepto. We are also Johnes level 1 accredited.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt 105 is sired by Milerston Dolomite, I had hoped he would encourage her dam to produce me a light roan heifer, but she had the last say. Jilt J105 has however produced us three roan heifer calves so far and done a great job on all three of them. I did wonder if I had done the right thing in letting her mother go, but J105 has proved the decision to be correct, producing me three very good heifers up to date.

Photo taken January 2021. Jilt P028 is sired by Wenmar Major, a tremendous bull sired by the great Crooked Post Stockman. The Jilt family always produce heifers with presence and style that rarely develop into anything other than strong powerful cows and good mothers. P028's mother, J105, owes us nothing and just continues producing heifers with the Jilt family stamp.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt L138 has proven herself as a great first time mother and will no doubt strengthen our Jilt female line. We unfortunately lost her mother in early 2018, so L138 is has a job to do for us here for a few years to come. She has a quiet freindly nature which is a good thing being a very large framed young cow. I just love the Jilt cow family with their strength, size and spirit.

Photo not available. Jilt P031 is sired by Wenmar Major, a tremendous bull sired by the great Crooked Post Stockman. P031's mother L138 is a large framed first calver who has really come up to the mark in developing her mothering nature. She is caring and milky; what more could we ask for! P031 is going to fit right into the Jilt family model, but maybe a little quieter than some.
