Steer Horns - Texas Longhorn

Texas Longhorn (CTLR) cattle have been a fixture of life in Texas beginning with the earliest missions established by the Spanish when they first arrived. These early settlers brought with them their tough and resistant cattle, whose roots went back to the south of Spain. Cattle were used for oxen, hides, meat, and milk. In the 1830s, political control of Texas switched to Anglos, and during the Civil War cattle management essentially ceased so that cattle ran totally free.

    After the war, vast herds became the source of Texan wealth and recovery as cattle were trailed north to satisfy the demand for beef that came with industrialization and a growing nation.

    In the 1900s, “improved” British, European, and Indian breeds of cattle were imported to the region to boost beef production, and the Texas Longhorn breed declined in popularity. This influx of new breeds has very nearly caused the extinction of many of today’s heritage breeds. Fortunately this breed has always been connected with Texan identity, so that some ranchers always kept herds going. In the 1960s this effort was organized and expanded, but unfortunately the name “Longhorn” drove selection so much that purity became diluted, as selection favored horn growth at the expense of other traits as well as breed purity. As a reaction to the perilous situation facing the traditional breed, a few breeders organized the Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Registry and began a quest for the old, traditional pure Texas Longhorn cattle.
