Texas Longhorn

Part of the Livestock Show is an area with an example of each of the cattle breeds. The Texas Longhorn has been a part of Texas culture for centuries with its ability to adapt and, of course, their up to 7 ft. wide set of horns.

They survived as a primitive animal on the most primitive of ranges prior to becoming the foundation stock of that region's great cattle industry. Shaped by a combination of natural selection and adaptation to the environment, the Texas Longhorn is the only cattle breed in America which - without aid from man - is truly adapted to America.
