Breeding and showing purebred Shorthorns since 1999. A blend of function, performance, and eye appeal.

Hill Haven Shorthorns is located in Duntroon, Ontario, Canada near the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay. Since the late 1990’s, owners Bob Meldrum and Dale Asser have been breeding purebred shorthorns with the goal of producing the ultimate, complete shorthorn bull and female: a blend of function, performance and show ring appeal.
The Hill Haven motto is three fold: strive to find the genetics which improve the breed, ensure animal care is the highest priority and customer satisfaction only begins with the sale. Hill Haven holds a biannual Fall Female sale at the farm as well as regular online sales throughout the year. Hill Haven can be seen at major shows such as the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, CWA in Regina and NAILE in Louisville as well as junior and provincial events.


Our Cow Families

Over the years, we have built our cow herd with the selection of powerful females that have become the backbone of our program. Structural integrity, maternal traits, and predictable consistency are our main goals.

Show Ring Tested

Though our first priority isn't the show ring, Hill Haven Shorthorns have proven time and time again that they stack up in the toughest competition.

We offer cattle in our biennial Selections sale, held at the farm in Duntroon, Ontario, as well as select Shorthorn sales throughout Canada and the United States.
