A Lot of bull (Not Politics), but $380,000 worth
February 26, 2018 2:10pm CST
That is the auction price paid for a Longhorn cow (no bull) at a livestock auction in Ft. Worth, TX . This is a hobby, really. Longhorns aren't raised for their beef, but for the length of their horns. The ones in the photo I used here must be young ones, not ready for a prime time showing. I will attach a link to the article about the real thing with horns of 129.5 inches tip to tip. The article does go on to say that the horns can get so heavy if the animal is not big enough to carry them that they weigh the poor thing down. I have a photo somewhere that I took in the 1950s of some Longhorns in west Texas, but could not find it. Some people collect tea cups.
