A Dying Breed

From interviews of CTLR members, Maudeen Marks, Lawrence Wallace and Fayette Yates, Cora Oltersdorf created this interesting article. Published in the November/December '02 issue of Alcalde, "A Dying Breed" delves into the historical and economic significance of Texas Longhorns and why the featured breeders prefer to raise them.

The longhorn means more to Texans than anyone else. It's hardy, strong, beautiful, and it makes for a pretty nice mascot. And it's slowly being bred out of existence, but not if these few ranchers can help it.

What Makes a Full-Blood Texas Longhorn?

Longhorn Legacy
Graves Peeler and the Texas Cattle Trade

Graves Peeler, brand inspector for the Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Association, prime mover in saving a piece of western Americana--the Longhorn breed of cattle, and hunter/collector of wild game and primitive artifacts is the subject of this interesting biography.

We have received permission from heirs of the author to reprint this small book. Proceeds from its sale will benefit the Cattlemen's Texas Longhorn Conservancy, a public charity whose mission is to engage in scientific and historical research, education and other charitable purposes associated with Texas Longhorn cattle. If you would be interested in purchasing a copy, please drop us an email.

Big Bend Ranch State Park Handout

This informative handout defines trail drive etiquette, gives an informative history of the Texas Longhorn and describes how these cattle benefit the brittle environment.

History of Texas Longhorns

This history, by Alan Hoyt, follows the trail of the Texas Longhorns from the arrival of their ancestors to North America centuries ago.

Few books have been written about Texas Longhorn cattle containing accurate facts about their history with exception of The Longhorns by J. Frank Dobie published in 1941 and considered a Classic in longhorn circles. For hsitorical accuracy of research, we also recomend The Criollo Spanish Cattle in the Americas by John E. Rouse 1977 and Gathering Texas Gold J. Frank Dobie and The Men Who Saved the Longhorn by Terrence J. Barragy 2003.
