Beaver Creek Longhorns: Registered Texas Longhorns
Herd Sires
Mature Cows
2013 Bulls


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.


March 13, 2018:  This is the best time of year to get "real deals" on longhorn cattle purchases.  Please check out the "Sales Page".


March 11, 2018:  It is always a pleasure to deal with a new owner who is interested in obtaining "pasture ornaments" and "yard art". These are generally folks who have a keen appreciation for the Old West and times gone by. There is little that can satisfy this need better than a longhorn.  A phone call came in asking about adding three young longhorn steers to a beautiful acreage right on the edge of OKC.  We had just the right ones.  All three had been in the backyard after weaning and were well adjusted to city sounds and human activity.  Maybe too well!  Of course their names at their new home became Cash, Waylon and Willie.  In no time, Waylon mastered the steps onto the deck of his new home to get a taste of potted plants.  Cash watched on with envy while Willie made himself scarce.  Luckily, the door from the deck to the inside of the house was closed at that time.


March 12, 2018:  Peek was seven days past the date we figgered her calf was due.  She was really uncomfortable this past week, bringing up the tail end of the herd at dinner time.  When she didn't show up at all last evening, we went looking for her.  Close to a mile away from the other cows and down in a protected valley, she was contentedly nursing her new heifer.  A cold north wind was blowing on top, but not in her chosen spot.  At dinner time tonight, she brought her youngster up to the edge of the herd and parked it in a safe place.



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.

Beaver Creek runs down from eastern Kansas and is a great haven to wildlife and a stop-over location for migrating waterfowl and wintering eagles.

Just to the east of us is the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve with its free-ranging herds of massive American buffalo.

Prairie fires come through about every 2-3 years.  They clean off the brush and give new life to the pastures.  It's always an adrenalin rush to watch the flames sweep through, but the cows take it all in stride and move to the water's edge.  The fire that passed through two days before this photo was taken burned a little over 30,000 acres.  

Following the fires, the prairie comes alive with new growth and wild flowers like this butterfly milkweed and prickly-pear cactus.

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 regularly. 
I spend a lot of time out on the prairie, enjoying the outdoors and the longhorns and the wildlife.  I'm lucky because my family and friends enjoy sharing it with me.

Finally retired from my "real job" as a veterinary parasitologist.  More time with longhorns and tall grass!  I'm still hard to reach by phone since much of the prairie has no phone service.  But email me, or call and leave a message, and I'll try to get back with you.  I always enjoy talking with other longhorn folks.

Sometimes it is best to view the world from a secure location.
