The Medwyn Maid family have all been graded up from a red, half Shorthorn cow. Other back breeding included Simmental, Galloway and Whitebred Shorthorn. Many generations later they have proved to be an exceptionally high performance line. We like to think that we are only doing what the original breeders did with the first Shorthorns.i.e. Fixing a type from the best kind of commercially succesful stock.
