|Beaver Creek Longhorns: Registered Texas Longhorns|
Beaver Creek Cattle Co., located in north-central Oklahoma, is home to Longhorns with striking eye-appeal. Our Longhorns have great color, conformation, disposition and big horns.
Coloration of longhorn cattle is fascinating. Our longhorns show tremendous variation in colors as we strive for "every color in the rainbow". Horn shape is almost as varied as color. What wonderful eye-appeal these animals have as they decorate the Tallgrass Prairie!
Most of our cows are for sale and prices are included next to the pictures. A few are marked nfs (not for sale) for various reasons....often sentimental! Price listed is for the cow only unless stated otherwise.
October 14, 2017: Yesterday looked like it was going to be a good day to get a few calf pictures. Temperatures were in the upper 80's with a powerful cold-front due, bringing strong thunderstorms, resulting in lots of winds and beautiful skies for a short period of time. Topping the rise onto the ranch, a thin column of smoke could be seen coming from just over the hill. Strong winds had taken down an electric line that was sparking in the dry grass. Cell phone calls brought in three rural fire trucks from different areas (in spite of the OSU homecoming football game). By then the fire was about 20 acres and growing with 6-10' flames. The volunteer firefighters made short work of the burn, and we continued on our picture mission. Even then, the cows were continually alert to the smoke and firetruck activity, ready to move on if the fire approached.
Our longhorns are friendly!!!
The ranch is located on the shores of Kaw Reservoir where Beaver Creek runs into
the lake. The land was part of the Kaw Reservation and backs up to the
Osage Reservation. It's on the southern end of the Flint Hills, so it's
rocky, but grows wonderful bluestem pasture. It has never been plowed.
I have three sons and their families who are great to help when
needed, especially for the big items like fencing, yearly vaccinations, and
pulling me out when I get stuck in the snow. Good friends and neighbors pitch in
Sometimes it is best to view the world from a secure location.
