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.
Down sizing due to the drought was a very painful experience but it has left us with only the most superior cows going forward and crossing them with a recognized industry bull will produce prospects with the greatest upside potential.
A vital 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.
Longhorn cattle are for sale at all times!
We welcome the opportunity for mutually beneficial trades. Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss our cattle. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. If you are interested in raising Longhorns but you do not know anything about the breed, we will be happy to assist you in getting set up and we can be your guide as you develop your first herd.
