This is not just a new version of Showcattle.com with a new layout. It will be a completely different game.

It is not even remotely close to being done. Nothing here will remain long term. It's being built. Feel free to mess around all you want.

Small Updates

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

Color and horn genetics are setup well enough that I can add whatever breed needed now.

Reset all of the cattle yesterday.


  • Color name now shows under cattle
  • Cattle appear bright red if that profile hasn't been setup yet


  • Fixed a small issue that caused shorthorn/angus cattle to have greater than 100% blood


  • Now properly checks requirements for Angus/Red Angus registration of starter cattle


  • The bid block no longer shows up on cattle that aren't at auction.

Calves were born for the first time today.

The only genetics that are part of the game right now are horn genetics, but we have a full polled/scurred/African model.

If you're messing around with the site (it isn't even alpha or beta right now) you will likely randomly see your cattle disappear. That means we added something new that wasn't compatible with the test cattle already in the sim.

Genetic Testing

  • Three dots show up next to the horn status on an animal if you own them now
    • Shows the genetic testing status of each horn gene
    • Gives you the option to get genetic tests done for each horn gene

Small Updates

Monday, September 5, 2022

Added horn genetics to the initial cattle creation and it shows on the cattle pages.

  • You will be able to get genetic tests for all three horn genes.
Genetic Models

Monday, July 18, 2022


The basic horn genetic model from Showcattle is included as well as scurs.

Added the African horn gene as well.

Horn genetics will be based entirely on this NCSU article.


Using this article as the basis for color genetics again.
