About us


In 1954 we were founded as the Maryland Shorthorn and Polled Shorthorn Society Inc. with 5 original members. Since then, we have grown our membership to include breeders and exhibitors from across the Mid-Atlantic Region. Every spring we hold our Annual Meeting and Dinner. It is a great opportunity for Shorthorn fellowship, a recap of the previous year's events, and to gear up for another eventful year. Every June we host the Eastern Regional Shorthorn Show at the Howard County Fairgrounds. This is a highlight of the year and allows breeders and exhibitors to come together to showcase the Shorthorn breed.
