|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!
April 21, 2014: Check out SALES page. More longhorns added.
March 9, 2014: We've been bringing the longhorn moms to have their calves in the back yard this year, since we lost so many to coyotes last year. It's worked out really well, and the cows accept the change. I guess they like the barn and at least two meals a day. Plus snacks, if visitors stop by to see them. The prairie can be harsh at this time of year. And the coyote population seems to be ever increasing. As we left the prairie this evening, two coyote hunters were getting settled on the ridge with calls and 'scoped rifles. I used to really enjoy listening to the coyotes as they are certainly part of the romance of the Old West. When they started adding newborn calf to their diet, it kinda killed the romance.
We went out to load Pepper for the ride to town, and found her with her new bull calf. Guess we were just a few days off in our calculations. Her calf is about 12 hours old in the photo. We're not too worried about this one. Pepper is a really attentive mom and will keep the calf right by her side. Shelly took a bucket of cubes out to her and snapped the photo. I'd hate to be the coyote that challenged this pair.
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.
