Our ranch is located in Yamhill, about 35 miles West of Portland, Oregon. We are raising a small, but fine herd of registered Texas Longhorns.
In today’s market horn size, base and shape matter. But we are targeting the complete package cow with big, twisty horns, calm disposition, stand-out color, correct conformation, milking ability, outstanding fertility and superior calf production. A balanced animal has the most eye appeal.
A strong pedigree top and bottom is important. It increases predictability and adds market value to the offspring. The pedigrees of our cows are stacked for several generations with some of the best bulls in the industry. It takes a superior bull and a well-producing cow to create a high value calf. Mature animals in our herd earned their “place on the roster” through production. Except for steers, looking pretty is not good enough!
We are taking a business approach to raising Texas Longhorns because it leads to better herd management decisions. Healthy competition is a good thing and motivates a breeder to do better. But we are also having fun and are truly enjoying this magnificent breed. Our Longhorns are the reason why we met many wonderful people all across the United States of America.
