Raising Longhorn Cattle In the Texas Hill Country

Longhorn Calves and Roping Calves

Longhorn calves are especially cute. They, like their parents, come in all colors. They make very good roping calves because they are fast, highly energized, can run longer distances and stay running longer, which is very desirable for those looking to buy roping calves for roping and rodeos.

A Longhorn bull calf that comes from old line breeding stock or a famous sire has added value as he matures. Because Longhorn cattle are naturally healthy and vigorous, they are low maintenance. Ranchers raising Longhorn cattle can rely on lower food and veterinary bills, which is a plus when the rancher is considering keeping a few well bred calves on hand for building up his breeding herd.
