|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.
May 23, 2018: This is the best time of year to get "real deals" on longhorn cattle purchases. Please check out the "Sales Page".
May 8, 2018: The longhorns dig dust-bowl type wallows all across the pastures. The adults will enlarge them with hooves and horns until some get quite large - 15 feet in diameter and two feet deep - much like the old buffalo wallows from times past. We've not seen this from other herds, and wonder if it takes place elsewhere. When we started the herd on this land more than 20 years ago, there were remains of half a dozen left-over buffalo wallows. Can't help but wonder if the longhorns didn't discover them on their on and the many uses they provide......such as catching and holding water after rains, or making wonderful dust-bath spots in dry weather. These three calves have found a good use for one of the smaller (newer) dished out spots as a good place for a nap on a warm spring day.
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.
