We LOVE the LONG horns, and we breed for that but we think the whole cow matters so we concentrate on structure and mothering ability, too. The bull power that we have is incredible, we’ve retained daughters sired by Watson 167, Working Man Chex and Bandera Chex to build our herd. Ringman and Swagger are products of our best cow, Ringa Dinger. Fifty-Fifty BCB is one of the best bulls in the industry for beauty, horn development and smoothness. We also have some junior herd sires that are in the process of proving themselves here at Bolen ranch.
We currently have about 200 head of longhorns. We enjoyed showing cattle for several years, and have had several champions. We also bred and own the first cow to ever win all three TLBAA Horn Measuring competitions (total, tip to tip, and composite horn) and then go on to win World Grand Champion title. Talk about a complete cow! Now we enjoy taking our cattle to town for the horn measuring events and futurities and have had several class winners in those as well.
We hope you enjoy our website. Please feel free to call or write with any questions. We would love to visit with you whether you already have longhorns or are just starting out. And come see us if you're in the area!
