Livestock Conservancy Seeks New Home for Native Shorthorns

After an extended drought, the Albaugh cattle ranch is looking to reduce its herd. The Livestock Conservancy is now seeking your help in finding these cows a good home.

Dear Livestock Conservancy members and friends,

Please pass the word along to friends and family and help us get these cattle placed.

Due to the extended drought in the American West, the Albaugh registered herd of Native Milking Shorthorns located in Nevada will be reduced before the end of April.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase some of the finest Native Shorthorns in the country. They have proven superior meat qualities verified by independent lab testing and are 100 percent grass genetics that fatten and finish on grass. The cattle have been selected to be extremely gentle natured and the cows still retain excellent milk production. These cattle should perform well in most of the U.S. except in areas with a combination of both high heat and high humidity. More information about the breed can be found on the Livestock Conservancy website.

Native Milking Shorthorns are currently listed as 'Critically Endangered' on the Conservancy's priority list and these cattle are important for conservation purposes. For more information contact Norris Albaugh at (775) 434-3316.

Thank you for helping with our conservation efforts,
The Livestock Conservancy Team
