|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. BCC 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.
September 21, 2014: It would appear that the pelicans have a calendar. The first day of Fall arrived with a cool breeze and several hundred pelicans arriving at Kaw Lake and Beaver Creek. They are a wonder to watch as they wheel in flight with the sun catching their brilliant black-and-white bodies. We are lucky that Beaver Creek Ranch is located right in the middle of the central flyway for migratory waterfowl. The pellys will hang around for about a month, then depart for warmer climes. Come March, they'll pass through again, stopping only long enough to rest up and regroup for their passage to their summer homes.
We try to keep the longhorn pictures updated, but there are always unexpected challenges. The ideal situation is to catch the calf's attention when it is off by itself, then get down low so the camera is on the same level as the longhorn. But sometimes that position is just an advertisement to the calves for chance to satisfy their curiosity about the camera. In a moment, the person and camera are surrounded by the inquisitive little guys who want to lick the camera lens and check out the photographer.
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.
