Wenmar Beef Shorthorns
Warren Farm in Worcestershire is the home of the Wenmar herd of beef shorthorn cattle. The first Wenmar beef shorthorns came together on the Isle of Man in the early 1990’s when the herd was first founded. The focus at Wenmar Beef Shorthorns has always been on improving the native breeds of beef cattle. The beef shorthorn herd shared the farm on the Isle of Man with Hereford and Highland Cattle. Our Herefords were dispersed direct from our farm on the Isle of Man. The Highland Cattle were dispersed in the late summer of 2011. Our focus now is solely on pedigree beef shorthorns.
The aim at Wenmar is to work with Worldwide genetics using imported semen and embryos from Canada, Australia and the US. We have partners and shared ownership of cows that we use as donors in Canada, and collect embryos for blending with European genetics. We also have agreements with breeders to exclusively import and market their genetics throughout Europe. Wenmar Beef Shorthorn cattle are focussed on expanding the European gene pool, breeding quality bulls and heifers suitable to carry the breed forward onto the next generation. We seek to produce a beast that is capable of efficiently producing quality beef for today’s marketplace. We like our cattle to exhibit breed character, and must maintain the true beef shorthorn traits as a hardy productive suckler cow. We focus on easy calving mothers with good udders and plenty of milk, coupled with mobility and a good temperament. 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.Beef Shorthorns
