   Welcome to Twin Maple Farms. We are a family run beef operation breeding purebred Shorthorn
   cattle.  Our first Shorthorns were purchased in 1972 and we have been raising them continuously
   ever since.

   We have done our share of crossbreeding, mostly while our children were growing up, with the
   aim of producing show steers for their 4-H projects. We were able to produce the Champion
   market steer and Reserve Champion market steer at the Nova Scotia 4-H Pro Show on three
   different occasions. Two of these steers were straight Shorthorns.  We've found that our
   Shorthorns can compete right at the top with the crossbred steers. Quite frankly, we don't think
   you can find a better female than the Shorthorn. Our steers at the Maritime Beef Value Discovery
   Project (2006-2007) all graded AAA with an average carcass weight of 765 lbs. and an average
   Lean Meat Yield of 58%. Results here.

   We believe Shorthorns excel in multiple traits and with that in mind, we select our females for
   temperment, fertility, structural strength, mothering ability, as well as growth and carcass traits.
   We believe in maintaining strong cow families that do more than just produce a calf every year.

   Please stop by our site often as we'll do our best to keep it updated with current information.
