Fairlea Cows

At Fairlea Longhorn Ranch we have a number of what we call our core cows. These are cows who are sound producers, who have far greater than average horn length, and who are correct in all the other ways we expect them to be. In order to meet our criteria, a cow must not only be a proven producer of a healthy calf each year, but she and her calf must have excellent horns, a non aggressive disposition, good conformation, clean lines, and she must meet our visual standards of correctness. The cow must also be a proven good mother and a good milk producer.

Obviously, the standards we have set eliminates most of the Texas Longhorns you will see in sale pens and in average herds. We pride ourselves in having a herd which we believe compares to the very finest in the country, and we are constantly looking to improve it.


Like all of God’s creatures, longhorns are dynamic beasts who change or are changed by events in their lives which may, at a given moment, make them either more or less desirable to either their owner or someone interested in becoming their owner. The prices published on this website are my best judgment of their value as of the date the price was set and assuming a minimum of disruptive events which might affect their value, either up or down. Also, we must always recognize that pricing is a very subjective discipline. Ultimately, a longhorn is only as valuable as both buyer and seller agree it is.

"Herd health is extremely important to us. We have never had issues with diseases, but delivering the best product to fellow breeders is always the goal. Our herd is and always has been free of Johnes and BVD"
