Probably because the vast majority of posters on this board are the "good ole boys" who think the only REAL beef animal or bovine comes in black... Still others run down Longhorns just because they "can" and it serves as catalyst to encite controversial and flaming dialog...lol.
Some people just seem to think by blasting someone else's breed or program will elevate them in status...not.
Welcome to Longhorn Country!

Here is what I can tell you from my experience; Easy calving, easy to feed, tough as be nice in any environment, calves hit the ground running and suckling right away, bulls don't waste any time getting the job done. In our experience, the half longhorns sell right along with the baldy calves, they do just fine. However, full "longhorn looking" calves don't sell real good here. If they did, I would probably be raising them myself. Important thing is to raise whatever breed you enjoy raising. My opinion, there is nothing prettier than a hereford, but everyone has their favorites.
