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.

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 buffalo.

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.  

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.

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