Prospective herd sires or steers - BRINDLE

Unique as longhorns

Everybody appreciates the colors that they can find in their longhorn herd. Whether it be just a couple animals they keep grazing in the front yard, of several different bull's pasture groups in a very large herd, one of the very cool things about the longhorns is their color. As Frank Dobie once wrote about longhorn hides - they were "more varied than the colors of the rainbow". Some folks like to breed for certain color types (harder than it seems in some cases … longhorn color genetics are a 'bit' more complicated than the pundit square) or collect one of each (just like potato chips...can't have just one!). Regardless, there is an entire new avenue of considerations beyond those that an Angus breeder might be thinking about. All that being said, we had a nice crop of brindle bullcalves born last year and those have all sold. We may have another great crop this year, already have a really nice heifer brindling! Both of our herd sires have done a great job of producing this color in a wide variety of styles.
