About Elah Valley Longhorns

Ever been in just the right place, at a certain time, and been inspired by God’s creation. Some time ago we were on our way to a weekend of fishing with family and we passed a longhorn ranch, and it was – “WOW! Look at those longhorns!” We were so taken by the kaleidoscope of colors and patterns, not to mention incredibly large and varied horns of this herd of majestic animals. Upon our return home the search and research began. With a personal history of working with registered cattle and a career in the animal nutrition industry Texas Longhorn breeding seemed like it would be a good fit for us. Every contact with longhorn breeders was another step to encourage us to take the next step into this community of Texas longhorn breeders. We handpicked some great heifers from Mike Bowman at End of the Trail. Then we were blessed to be able to obtain some incredible foundation cows from Lorinda Valentine at Panther Creek. Along the way we have added some very impressive cows to our herd, as well as a great crop of heifers out of Tommie EOT in 2015 and spring 2016.  Also, we now have a new bull - Tuff's Titan (Cowboy Tuff Chex x FL Rio Maxine). Expecting this guy to add a totally new look to our progeny. Check out our longhorns and give us a call or come by the ranch.  We do love to show them off!

For those of you who may be curious about our ranch name – Elah Valley. The Elah Valley is a valley in Israel where David would have met his demise in his battle with Goliath, except for the intervention of God. Likewise, we are thankful to God for the men who have gone before us in preserving this incredible and unique breed of cattle, and for the rich history they leave us.
