When we started out with longhorn cattle we had a six-acre ranchette at Queen Creek, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. One of our neighbors had a Texas Longhorn steer on his property that we began watching. Finally, like many other people, we decided "we need one of those, too". After contacting a local breeder, we discovered we could even have some beautiful mama cows. We bought three cows with calves and a young bull. We didn't even buy a steer until four years later!
We LOVE the LONG horns, and we breed for that. We have several cows that measure over 70 inches (and a bunch over 60"). The Bull power that we have now is incredible. Watson 167 and Working Man Chex have produced Horn Showcase winners for us. Bandera Chex's sire and dam are both Horn Showcase winners and he has helped our program grow by adding base and color and size to his calves. Ringman is our youngest herd sire who is the product of our best cow, Ringa Dinger and sired by Working Man Chex who adds great maternal traits to his daughters.
We currently have about 200 head of longhorns. We enjoyed showing cattle for several years, and have had several class champions at the TLBAA World Show. We also had a TLBAA World Show Overall Grand Champion Non-Haltered Female. We also have 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 Free Division Mature Cow. Talk about a complete cow! Now we enjoy taking our cattle to town for the horn measuring events. The Futurities are other fun events that we enjoy.
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. We have since moved our operation to Lufkin, Texas. If you are in our area, we would enjoy showing you the cattle.
