“Line Up” Now available in Australia!

The Dickinson Cattle Co Bull LINE UP comes from deep in the DCC herd of strong black, long, trim and thick cattle. Horns on 6-2-22 are 83.25″ T2T. The most challenging achievement in the TL industry is a ton plus bull with over 90″ T2T. Time Line, his sire is the forth ton+90″ bull in history. Line up will be one of the widest horned true black TL bulls (black cattle grow horn slower).

To check genetic history and ancestral data go to this link https://www.texaslonghorn.com/inventory/index.cfm?con=id&IDNo=15103&BreedCode=T&Category=Reference_Sire

By clicking on this link you will have a full pedigree. By clicking on back, up to 17 generations of planned matings can be evaluated for the serious pedigree student. A double click with any photo will give an enlarged high res projection.

Every 2 or 3 years Dickinson Cattle Co collects the most promising bull for export that is believed to compliment the other sires that have been exported. Line Up will work well on Spokesman, Cut’n Dried and Tuxedo daughters. With this genetic plan the herds in many countries will be a parallel quality to the DCC USA herd.

Exporting of semen and embryos is not new to DCC. It has been a regular part of the business since 1990 when live cattle were shipped by plane to Poland. Semen, cattle or embryos have been shipped to 34 countries outside the USA.

For a list of other semen sires 6 bulls are qualified for export. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/inventory/semen/index.cfm

8th Annual Texas Longhorns Australia National Show 2021

2021 National Show Results

After setting a date twice for the 2021 National Show to be held at Scone the committee had to concede defeat due to all the covid19 pandemic restrictions and once again take the show to an online format.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our wonderful Judge Nicole Hartwig, we know that we did not set you an easy task, but you rose to the challenge and helped us pull off the 8th annual National Texas Longhorn Show. Things can only get bigger and better from here and we look forward to being all back together for the show in 2022.

We also need to give a massive thank you to the 2021 Show Sponsors, your support is truly appreciated. Thank you to the show coordinators, Rodney & Adelaide Cooper, your unwavering dedication is admirable. It would be remiss of me to forget to thank the show competitors! With out you there is no show! Thank you to each and every one of you for nominating and for taking the time to prepare your cattle, it is magnificent to see the Texas Longhorn breed showcased so elegantly. You are all winners for being brave enough to have a go!

A New Australian Milestone Reached!

It is an exciting time for Texas Longhorns in Australia with the first Australian born cow to reach the exciting milestone of ‘Club 90’.

HBL Milly bred by Horseshoe B Longhorns, based at Charters Towers Queensland now officially measures 90 & ½” from horn tip to tip. Born in November 2011, 9 year old HBL Milly is a dual registered daughter of Drag Iron.

Being an American breed, Texas Longhorn measurements are taken and recorded in inches, but in metric terms at just shy of 2.3m HBL Milly cements her position as the widest horned cow in Australia to date.

Congratulations to Michael & Lynda Bethel of Horseshoe B Texas Longhorns on this outstanding achievement and Australian first!

Tuxedo semen now ready for import to Australia

Tuxedo, a very special 2 year old Texas Longhorn Bull is now ready to export semen to many countries. He has been collected with all the export required quarantine and testing. Although the European countries are almost impossible, most other countries can be shipped to with normal complications.

Tuxedo, age 2, breeding in DCC pastures, Summer 2017

 

Tuxedo is a natural born calf out of Sweet Jubilee and sired by the over 100″ tip to tip horned bull, Cowboy Tuff Chex. Cowboy Tuff Chex is the most popular semen sire in the US at this time. He has a record horn spread listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for a Texas Longhorn Bull.

Sweet Jubilee is the dam of Tuxedo. She has 2 sisters with over 90″ T2T,  as does her clone dam.

2017 Texas Longhorns Australia Get Together an outstanding success

Texas Longhorns Australia’s 2017 National Show and National Sale are over for another year and both were considered to be the best ever.

The show saw a great roll up of longhorns enter the 7 classes with the Grand Champion Female being awarded to “Kooroora Elsa” a 20 months old heifer owned and exhibited by Rodney & Adelaide Cooper from Kooroora Longhorns. Grand Champion Bull of the Show went to 14 month old “Speargrass Star Witness” owned by Nicole & Keith Burns from Speargrass Longhorns.

Best Presented animal went to YC Venus exhibited by the Newbury family from Yarrow Creek Texas Longhorns and the Herdsmanship Award went to Adelaide Cooper from Kooroora Longhorns.

Gunnedah Local Patrick Rankmore did a fantastic job as the Judge for the 2017 Show.

Saturday night saw the AGM and Dinner being enjoyed by well over 50 members and visitors. Rodney Cooper was elected the new President for 2017/2018 and past President John Bastardi and Geoff Dawson (Two of the originators of Texas Longhorns Australia) were awarded Life Membership.

Sunday saw 30 quality longhorns go under the hammer when Sam Plevey from Purtle Plevey Agencies commenced the auction at 10.30 am. The highest priced animal was Speargrass Star Witness, a striking 14 months old bull, who was purchased by Paul & Marie Klante form Girilambone. They also purchased the highest priced female on the day YC Impressive Springs 814 a very fancy rising 3 year old heifer, who was in calf to Southern Cross Ironbark the longest horned bull in Australia.

All members and visitors had a fun filled weekend. Members have all headed home to work out what animals they will bring to the 2018 National Show. The countdown has begun already.
