Cattlemen's Texas Longhorn Registry
Bylaws Preamble

In so much as the Texas Longhorn played the lead role as the foundation bedrock of the great American cattle industry and having been justly recognized as such by the State of Texas, heartland of their evolution, in Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 14 (July 27, 1981),
"[for the] epic [that] has been created by the Texas Longhorns, the land that produced them, and the men who loved and exploited them that goes beyond the limitations of mere land, men, and cattle to become a living legend;"
And in so much as the United States is a world leader in beef production, having achieved that status by producing the highest quality of beef in an economical manner; and whereas the world's population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate with urbanization placing stronger demands on beef producers and their cattle to function more efficiently; and whereas the Texas Longhorn has the demonstrated capability of contributing further, and significantly so, through its unique, naturally evolved, and economically sound genetic traits, specifically in terms of reproductive and functional efficiency; and whereas no organization currently exists with the infrastructure and intent needed to insure the continued success of the breed, Cattlemen's Texas Longhorn Registry has been formed.
