|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.
"Sales" page updated May 6, 2017! We had too many calves and yearlings in the back yard, so there were some great sale prices offered which thinned it down a bit. Thanks to all who helped out by purchasing some really nice youngsters at good prices. There are still a couple of good heifers on "Sales" page and plans are to bring in more weaning calves this weekend.
May 7, 2017: Remember Black Chaps' twins born December 20? Here is an update on them. It was touch-and-go for the first few days, then they settled down to "normal" longhorn calf lives. They are now out on the prairie, roaming the ranch and playing with all the other calves. Gwen always nurses from the front and Gusto is to the rear of her. Black Chaps makes plenty of milk for both and is one of the best moms ever.
May 6, 2017: There are several large buffalo wallows on the ranch. These date back many years to when massive herds of buffalo roamed the prairie. The wallows served as dust bowls for the animals to wallow in for insect control in times of drought. Following the infrequent rains, the wallows hold water for weeks at a time and make watering holes for all kinds of wildlife. Today, a new type wallow has sprung up on the ranch as the longhorns dig them out with hooves and horns. Just as in centuries past, the new (and much smaller wallows) serve the same purposes as the old. Here, Tula and her heifer enjoy a drink from a wallow still holding water from last week's rain.
May 3, 2017: Missy Do is the "Cow of the Day". Missy Do is shown with her beautiful spring bull calf (and a couple of other calves that wanted in on the photo op). She is 18 years and 10 months old. She never does anything wrong and is a wonderful mom who raises absolutely beautiful calves.
These longhorns never cease to be amazing!
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.
