|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.
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.
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.
