Picture Outstanding Shorthorns Like These In YOUR Herd


Welcome to Our Website!
Watch the video below to see our cattle in their plain, everyday clothes.  Just imagine what they would look like primped up for the show ring.  We have some replacement heifers for sale by private treaty Spring, 2014.  Calves are out of our Saskvalley Image bull.  Check out the genetics of our Herd Sires in the video on our Herd Sire page.

We have outstanding performance tested yearling shorthorn bulls for sale at the Nebraska Bull Test Sale on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at the Broken Bow Livestock Auction in Broken Bow, Nebraska (video at and also at the 2014 Kansas Bull Test Sale at Beloit, Kansas on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 (videos at  Please view our shorthorn bulls on page 16 of the Kansas Bull Test catalog below.

The Vacura family has raised registered Shorthorns for four generations on their ranch near Jennings, Kansas.  The cattle in our herd are among the best you can purchase throughout the United States.  Our bulls have the genetics that give low birth weight and fast weight gain in calves.  As any cattleman knows, those two features are of prime importance in running a cow-calf operation. 
Calves in our herd who are only a few weeks old show the confirmation and stance that is desired in the show ring.  Heifers and steers from our herd are an excellent choice for 4-H projects.
The video below shows our 2012 replacement heifers.  Heifers like these sold by private treaty in Fall, 2013, and similar heifers are for sale in Spring, 2014.  Contact us early to get first pick.


In the video below are First and Second Calf Heifers in our herd.  All calves were born unassisted.  Calves are out of KL Prime Cut and BO's Steadfast Abilene.
