Buffalo Gap Longhorns
Herd Sire Prospects
Welcome and thanks for visiting
. Buffalo Gap Longhorns is located on a family ranch property 2 miles southwest of Buffalo Gap, Texas some 12 miles south of Abilene. Located on the northern edge of the Edwards Plateau, Buffalo Gap is named for the gap in the mountains once traversed by millions of American Bison in their annual migrations. Comanche Indians used the natural funnel in their annual hunting expeditions for the buffalo.
We are focused on building a foundation herd using some of the best genetics in the industry through both AI and Embryo Transfer. Our program is utilizing semen from industry leaders: CV Cowboy Casanova, BL Cowboy Tuff Chex, RJF Sittin Dreamer, and Spur Texa. The breeding plan is focused on horn, color, and consistency. As we build our foundation herd from these proven producers we will be retaining the heifers for further improvement in our long range plan.
We are thrilled to have added RC Pacific Mermaid to our herd in March 2016. Mermaid is only six years old, already tops 80" TTT, and has already produced three 80+' offspring and three others in the mid 70s" TTT She is a magnificent, proven producer, and she is going to be the foundation of our cow herd. We are now taking deposits for embryo sired by Hubbell's 20 Gauge and CV Call of Duty.
We are also thrilled to have three heifers from the cross of CV Cowboy Casanova x FL Rio Maxine. This cross, which we accomplished with our partner, Cedar View Ranch, has produced several great bull prospects including Call of Duty. And, our first heifer, BG Cricket, topped 62" TTT on her second birthday. Cricket will be our next embryo donor starting in spring 2017. She is still predicting over 90" TTT.
We also own a young heifer calf, Tuff's Red Rose, who is sired by world record Cowboy Tuff Chex who most recently measured 99" TTT. Her dam is Max's Red Rose measuring 88" TTT. Rose has already produced a 90" TTT daughter, Rex's Red Rose, who is the youngest cow to reach 90". Tuff's Red Rose will be the next great producer on the ranch when she matures.
As you can see, we are establishing the building blocks for tremendous horned cattle in our herd.
Please browse our pages and our herd often and watch us grow. We would love to meet you personally, and show off our herd if you are in our area. Feel free to contact us with questions or if you have an interest in purchasing any animals you see.
