Stick around, hell the posse has not even started to get on their horses yet, this here is just the scouts out looking for new prey. When the posse rides I'll help you out regardless if you are wrong or right I'll be there. Chances are good when the posse is after you you must be right. I just noticed it does not say where you are from, if you are from Virginia or Florida I may not be any help to you on account of sometimes it gets so hot there that folks brains melt from the extreme heat.sudonsan":3t6ozspb said:As a 'newbie' not feeling welcome.

I quoted what the national organization Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America provides to its members and I HAVE BEEN REPEATEDLY expected to defend this. How in the world is a NEWBIE supposed to defend with the national organization has researched and provided their members???? And your comment is FLIP and NOT welcoming AT ALL. I don't know it all - not even close - I am a NEWBIE. But to repeatedly CHALLENGE me is ridiculous! SOME people wanted to have a discussion - but a few wanted to be RIGHT - different entirely. I'm not leaving cattle or longhorns - only judgmental people. I am tired of trying to DEFEND, not discuss - did you read the entire thread??? It wasn't ONE comment. How can I defend research I didn't do????
Some of the people here do not want to welcome new people.

Not always neighbor just dropped off a 1/2 Angus 1/2 LH to play with Obama.
Cow is out of a registered Angus and LH.
She is a wild colored thing as well. He drops her off every year to bred to my bull for his freezer beef.
The 3/4 English 1/4 LH grows off into a fine calf.
It is real hard to knock the chrome and bumpers of a LH.
Natural selection genetics are strong.
Personally I would believe that dehorned solid colored LH or Corriente cows will be in demand than these ones that still has horns. These dehorned cows often bring better prices at the sale barn and almost always $200-400 higher than the typical horned LH prices.Caustic Burno":pgbi3q2e said:If you could get the horns off the LH, I don't like horns and neither do the order buyers. I think the LH people missed the boat in not creating a polled composite, I have always thought they would be in demand as much as the Tigers.

Cross a LH with a Brimmer cow and have a cow that would produce for fifty years off barb wire and briars.
Come back with an English bull and get some great calves.
The problem is with LH is the buyers as well as brimmer calves at the barn you will starve to death trying to give them away.
Run a set of tiger heifers through and a fight breaks out on who gets to haul them home.

Yep, we're still running Longhorns. We still have some registered cows and also have started running some Longhorn x Angus crosses over the last few years. Some people love Longhorns and some hate 'em. Whatever the case may be, you have to raise what you like, whether you're motivated by profit or pleasure. I personally love the Longhorn ground beef, as it is lean and not greasy. However, as far as a good steak, I like a little more marbling than a straight Longhorn produces.
Time will tell, but so far, the Longhorn x Angus heifers seem to make a good replacement cow. Down the road, I would like to try crossing them with a polled Charolais bull to make a nice terminal calf..
