Diamond Shorthorns Tibial Hemimelia (TH) Policy

At Diamond Shorthorns we recognize the importance of testing and identifying carriers of the genetic defect Tibial Hemimelia (TH).  We have started getting results back on our herd.  We first tested the AI bulls and walking bulls that have an influence on our current fall sale cattle as well as the cattle themselves.  We will be testing the balance of the herd this fall.  Our policy regarding carriers is the following - We will not sell carrier cattle for purebred or commercial breeding stock.  At the recent "All That Glitters" sale we withdrew three lots identified as THC from our consignment.  Any top end THC females will be bred to non carrier bulls, the resulting offspring tested and again only non carriers will be offered for sale.  All bull calves kept to be sold for breeding will also be tested and again only TH free bulls will be sold.  Many good animals that could not previously be tested can now be identified and their TH Free offspring can still benefit the breed.  We are pleased that Northern Legend 3N, Diamond Captain Mark 27C, Emerald Bigtime 49B, Diamond Northern Gold 5N and Diamond Regal Legend 4R have tested TH free.  Gafa Captain Macbest 6G has been identified as a TH carrier.  We have several top producing daughters of 6G in our herd that will be tested.  We have already tested some TH free offspring from these cows and the 6G influence will continue to be felt in our herd through his TH free daughters and the TH free offspring of carrier daughters.  We feel it is of utmost importance that carrier bulls are never offered as breeding stock for commercial herds.
