|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.

July 14, 2020: Each of the cows has a story. Some are four or five (plus) generation members of the herd. Kat 5 is one of those stories. She came with her mom from the beautiful herd belonging to Orren Mixer, the great artist of longhorn cattle and horses from Arcadia, Okla. Orren selected the cows in his herd for their beauty. He truly had every color in the rainbow. His home with its big glass windows looked out in every direction over pastures filled with these beauties. Near many of the windows there was a chair and an easel so he could sit and watch and paint as the picture presented itself.
Kat 5's mom, Black Cloud, was a black-and-white paint beauty. Small and with a gentle disposition. A year after she arrived, she produced a petite black-and-white heifer. When it was time to send in registration papers in 2005, the devastating hurricane had hit New Orleans. And Katrina was the name that went on the papers. Soon Katrina's name was shortened to Kat 5, and has remained so.
Kat 5 is in the pasture straight across the road from the house. Every morning and evening she is standing at the feed trough, staring hard at the door, patiently waiting for breakfast and dinner.
The heifer she now has will likely remain her companion. They are inseparable. Orren Mixer would be pleased to know that his contribution to the beauty of the longhorn lives on.
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.
More than one baby take advantage of mom providing a safe place from
which to view the world.
