About Texas Longhorns
Longhorns were the first cattle brought to the new world by Christopher Columbus and Spanish colonists. They are the heritage icon of the Southwestern USA and the ‘American cowboy pioneer’. At one point close to extinction, Texas Longhorn associations today work hard to maintain the pedigree and support breeders. They are a smaller animal than more common cattle, but as a result do not need assistance with calving. Because they have not been overbred for maximum meat production, the meat is naturally flavourful.
We raise our Texas Longhorns on the open range in the summer and open pasture in the winter. For the last 6-8 weeks of their lives we feed them a diet of oats, barley and hay. We do not use hormones on our animals.
