Welcome to Bull Creek Longhorn Ranch

 Bull Creek Longhorns ranch raises and sells only Registered Texas Longhorn cattle since 2004. We are honored and humbled to have been voted Breeder of the Year 2019 within the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America. 

We live on our ranch and are with our Longhorn cattle everyday which keeps them quiet and gentle. We begin handling them as young as 30 days old by going through the Longhorn Chute for de worming and vaccinations.  By the time they are a year they will have been though there at least 5-6 times. This helps as they mature to be use to having hands on and human touch. It does make a difference.

We use 3 different resources to drive genetic improvement. Primarily natural breeding, rotating 7-8 bulls annually. Secondly, we utilize Artificial Insemination and In Vitro Fertilization as a means to bring exciting new genetics into our Longhorn herd. 

There are many great traits of Texas Longhorn cattle. They are gentle, friendly, curious, and naturally a very quiet natured breed of cattle. Longhorn cattle are relatively low maintenance, temperature and insect tolerant, and highly disease resistant. They are very tough, strong cattle. Another huge attribute is birthing ease, and a long breeding life that can reach into their 20's. Texas Longhorns are a pretty amazing breed of cattle. 

 2019 has given us some very nice young bulls and heifers with outstanding pedigrees and outcross genetics. We are so happy with our Van Horn Texa (21) heifers, the oldest being 8 mo as of December of 2019.  Swagger BCB will always be a major  player in our breeding program: he is able to correct the smallest of deficiencies in any cow. Cowboy Cadence can be counted on for a big body, color and correct frames. Trued Up BCR 646 calves just hitting the ground  2019 and looking very good. 90% are brindle in color and have very correct frames, tall, great hip, pretty heads, and showing excellent horn direction. Brazos Julio is a new boy to the herd coming in December 2019 with a lot of promise for exciting new genetics. He is a big bodied, tall exciting son of Brazos Ranger and his dam is from elite bloodlines from the El Coyote herd. We commonly lease bulls from other programs from time to time. 

All of our cattle may not be on the website so please let us know what you are looking for.  We offer packages at discounted prices for 2 or more Longhorn cattle purchased.  All our cattle are current on all vaccinations and de-worming.
