About Us
As longhorns migrated throughout the North American continent during the four hundred years between the 16th and mid 19th centuries, they evolved through a process of natural selection. Only the strongest of those cattle, (the ones which could travel very long distances, often with little feed or water, and could efficiently utilize scant grazing resources while still breeding and raising healthy calves each year), could survive and contribute to the gene pool. The strengths of the breed reflect the rugged natural survival requirements they faced. Coincidentally, many of these traits are what make them very special and highly desirable cattle in today's environment.
