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.

August 10, 2019: August days are HOT on the prairie.  Not many shady spots. Calves learn quickly to make use of the shade provided by mom.

 

August 19, 2019: Welcome to the new calf - with his blue-roan colors!  We've had only a handful of calves with this exotic shading born into the herd over the years.

     A background of why this little fellow is so special (besides his color).  His mom is Lilyan.  Lilyan is a daughter of Tazman, our first really super bull.  Lilyan's mom was PC Miss Do Impress from the Panther Creek Ranch.  We sold Lilyan as a youngster, but had the opportunity a couple of years ago to buy her back.  She is one of those cows that never does anything wrong. And she sure did something right with this rare blue youngster.

 

 

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 bison.


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. Smoke still lingered in the air. 


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.   Carole Muchmore     
                           

 

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

 

More than one baby take advantage of mom providing a safe place from
