Feature Friday: Martindell Shorthorns


     Martindell Shorthorns, of Hardyville, Kentucky has another outstanding set of bulls and heifers consigned to both the 2012 Kentucky Farm Bureau Beef Expo and the 2012 Tennessee Beef Agribition. Consistency of structural correctness, muscle, maternal traits, and overall balance and style with proven success in the pasture and show ring are the result of the family's more than 50 years of breeding Shorthorn cattle.
     C.F. Martin, Jr., purchased his first Shorthorns in 1960 and his knowledge and experience with the breed has given him the ability to know the genetics that work best in his herd.  Today he and sons Franklin and Jason have built a herd of quality cattle with repeat buyers looking for cattle to improve their herd and win in the showring. Years of consistently having one or both of the champion Shorthorns at the Kentucky Beef Expo along with numerous champions at the Kentucky State Fair, Tennessee State Fair, and the NAILE continues to attract buyers from across the country. Bulls and heifers are available for sale throughout the year directly from the farm and can be seen by scheduling a farm visit. Follow this link to their website for more information on current consignments, herd sires, and past champions.  http://www.martindellshorthorns.com/default.html
     The Kentucky Beef Expo Shorthorn Show and Sale will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, on Saturday, March 3, with the show at 10:00 am EST, and the Shorthorn Sale following at 1:00 pm EST. Martindell Shorthorns has consigned one bull and two heifers to this event.

     I have lived near the Martin family most of my life and with their years of experience breeding and raising Shorthorn cattle I'm confident you can find quality cattle and answers to any questions you might have about the breed by visiting with C.F., Franklin, or Jason.
