Impacts of Beef Cattle Shortcourses

Here's an interesting review by Tim Olson of the annual beef cattle courses that were held from 1951 through 1976. The old photographs in the slide shows may be of particuliar interest to Dexter breeders. In Slide Show Part 1 there's a photograph of a very short legged Angus bull in slide 7. In Slide Show Part 2, slide 4 shows a demonstration of dwarf Hereford calves.

One of the more difficult agenda items at our upcoming PDCA Annual Meeting will be the carrier issue within the Dexter cattle population.
