Welcome to Bull Creek Longhorn Ranch

 We raise and sell only Registered Texas Longhorn cattle. Bill and I have been raising Registered Texas Longhorn cattle since 2004. We were honored to be voted Breeder of the Year award with the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association 2019.

We welcome you to come visit the ranch and learn about this great breed of cattle. We focus on a total package animal meaning correct conformation, good feet, variety of color, good mothering abilities, nicely shaped heads, small ears, and horns with a variety of shapes.

HERD SIRE choices are a huge part of our program. We do not sell any bull we would not be willing to use ourselves. We look for strong maternal strength in our herd sires. We expect each cow and each mating to produce an animal better than the parents, or to "out produce themselves" striving to always improve our herd. We believe maternal strength is key in building a foundation. Just like a good home needs a strong foundation a serious cattle operation needs a strong foundation.

Our cattle are always on high quality vitamin / mineral program year around.  We believe in keeping our pastures fertilized and doing soil testing at least every other year. In the winter we feed soft, high quality fertilized hay.  Longhorns are rugged, but we believe a successful  breeding program does need to offer good quality forage and access to adequate vitamins and minerals, fresh water, annual vaccinations, and at least a bi annual de worming program. 

We are blessed to live on our ranch and look at our Longhorn cattle everyday thus able to catch any potential problems early.  Like the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We recommend using a quality longhorn chute specifically made to work longhorns to keep you and your animals safe.  We can recommend several people that make them and deliver them around the USA. 

There are many great traits to the Texas Longhorn cattle. They are gentle, friendly, curious, and naturally a very quiet natured breed of cattle. (We do not keep or sell an animal with a poor disposition).  A huge attribute is birthing ease, and a long breeding life, heat and cold tolerance. 

If you see a Longhorn on our site you are interested in please feel free to inquire online or a phone call. We have a sale page but there may be others that we may be willing to part with if asked. 

Our Longhorns are always current on vaccinations and deworming. Delivery may be an option depending on distance and schedule. However we can recommend several good reliable haulers that go nation wide. 

Visitors always welcome to visit the ranch and view our Longhorns and learn more about the breed. We enjoy spending time with new breeders to teach them about this magnificent breed of cattle. Call or email for an appointment. sktorkildsen@gmail.com or call  956-793-5484. We would love to work with you to add to or assist in starting a herd of Longhorns cattle.
