Membership for those who own Texas Longhorn cattle or those who are simply interested in helping Cattlemen's Texas Longhorn Registry preserve and promote the Texas Longhorn is available and affordable. All members will receive a Certificate of Membership and complete information packet on cattle inspection and registration. A new DNA test for evidence of impurity was developed in 2010.  We use this gene map analysis and visual inspection to determine eligibility for registration.

*Lifetime and Active members must own at least one CTLR registered breeding animal (see Cattle Registration) and receive unanimous approval of the Board of Directors.

Founding, Lifetime and Active members shall be entitled to influence policy with a one-man, one-vote representation either from the floor or through mail-in (not proxy) ballots.

Membership is not restricted to county, state or country.

Thanks to a generous anonymous donation, all new members will receive the gift of a Graves Peeler book.

Membership Application

Payment for Membership may be submitted on the Mercantile page.
