Details: This poster shows a Texas Longhorn cow standing in a field. Its coat is mostly a dark brown, with a few white patches with spots. Its distinctive horns are quite visible, as it looks directly at the camera.
The Texas longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to six feet in width and have a slight upward turn at their tips. The stock's longevity, resistance to disease and ability to thrive on marginal pastures makes it good for beef stock. Longhorn cattle can find food and shelter during rough weather. Longhorn calves are very tough and can stand up sooner after birth than other breeds.
