Thank you very much for the information you make available on all breeds. I would like to call your attention to some history you publish that is not in agreement with known or published history on Texas Longhorns. Please note 85% of the breed did not die in 1885/86. Please see the <A HREF="http://www.itla.com" TARGET="_blank">www.itla.com</A> site and the "Texas Longhorn Legacy." condensed historical information. Feel free to contact me as we feel this info on your site is very misleading and I would like to assist in your documentation efforts. I thank you, Darol Dickinson 740 758 5050

You can email the webmaster with your thoughts. But you might check out this link to the Oklahoma State University Livestock section. The facts as presented there were provided by the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and they say “However, the romantic Longhorn era came to an end when their range was fenced in and plowed under and imported cattle with quick maturing characteristics were brought in to "improve" beef qualities. Intensive crossbreeding had nearly erased the true typical Longhorn by 1900.” Their address is, P.O. Box 4430, Fort Worth, Texas 76164, in case you want to argue with them.
