About the Breed

In 1960, the Shaver Beefblend program began with the introduction of onrelated beef breeds from different areas within Britain. Shortly thereafter with the establishment in Canada of the first quarantine station for European cattle, we made further introductions of Continental breeds. As a result of thousands of calvings over several generations, the distinctive Shaver Beefblend had its beginning. We determined we would select for a red animal of medium frame. The 9 breeds incorporated were unrelated popular regional breeds. From the beginning we set out to develop Shaver Beefblend to have no relationship to established breeds with large herdbooks. Our object was to offer 85% of the worlds cattle breeders a stock that they could cross in their own herds that would be totally unrelated and thus maximize the effects of heterosis for our customers. No other composite breed has been developed in such a manner thus Shaver Beefblend offers cattlemen a genetic powerhouse, with immediate benefits for every commercial herd. The original objectives of the program are as relevant today as they were at its inception. The traits that we continue to select for in each generation are the same. They are:

  • Easy Keeping
  • Docility
  • Problem Free Calving
  • Early Sexual Maturity
  • Strong Mothering Ability
  • Efficient Feed Conversation
  • Rapid Growth Rate
  • Excellent Marbling
  • Early Finishing Capacity
  • Superior Carcasses
