Why Texas Longhorns??
With ancestry tracing back to Spain, Longhorns arrived with Columbus in 1493 at Santa Domingo. They were introduced to Mexico in 1521 and went from there to Texas via missionary expeditions.
In 1964, concerned breeders organized the Texas Longhorn Associantion of America and today over a quarter million head of Texas Longhorn cattle have been registered.
A unique intelligent animal that breeds well into its teens the hardy Texas Longhorn has a natural immunity and requires less maintenance. They are grazers taking advantage of the natural forage available.
The naturally lean and low cholesterol Texas Longhorn provides for a delicious and healthy choice of red meat. Research from Texas A&M has shown that Texas Longhorns have 30% less muscle fat and 10% less saturated fat than chicken.
