Few animals have such tell-tale features as the Texas Longhorn. Known for their distinctive horns, which can reach up to 7 feet long at the tip, the Longhorn is a large cattle species used in the beef and dairy industry. These guys can grow up to 2,200 pounds and are very hardy. They are grazers and since they aren’t picky, they will eat a wide variety of greenery, causing less damage than breeds that feed primarily off of a single food source.
The Texas Longhorn has diverse colorations and are known for being an intelligent breed. They are also known for being quite gentle, in spite of their imposing size. In fact, due to their largely calm nature, they are popular as riding steers. You can see just how large these guys are in person at our park!
