The Texas longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to 120 inches tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows and bulls in the 70 to 80 inch tip to tip range. Horns can have a slight upward turn at their tips or even triple twist. Texas Longhorns are known for their extreme diversified coloring. Texas Longhorns with elite genetics can often fetch up to $40,000 or more at auction with the record of $160,000 in recent history for a cow. Due to their innate gentle dispositions and intelligence, Texas Longhorns are increasingly being trained as riding steers. Today, the breed is still used as a beef stock, though many Texas ranchers keep herds purely because of their link to Texas history.
