While experiencing a costly and on going drought in our part of Texas, this amazing breed is doing quite well. Their ability to adjust and adapt leaves no question why they have survived as the iconic breed of our great state.
In early 2009 we began re-vamping our breeding program. This involved a serious culling process and an extensive review of our pedigrees. It was painful to say the least but everyone comes to that place at some time and we decided that top quality was more important than quantity. Our main objective then became to maintain only twelve superior cows.
Another aspect was bull selection. Looking at the maternal side of these animals to ensure every trait was taken into consideration, we made a decision on two leading bull lines. We have chosen Gunman and Hunts Command Respect bloodlines to cross our cattle with and we have been pleasantly surprised with our last three calf crops.
We retained five heifers from our 2010 calf crop, all projecting into the mid seventies at maturity. Another aspect we are instituting is the breeding of our heifers at age two, allowing for more maturity in size and horn before the calving process begins.
Measuring our heifers from LC Bladen, Sittin Bull and Max is turning out to be quite amazing!
Longhorn cattle are for sale at all times!
