Bull power. A breeding program's success depends on the selection of excellent bulls. At Sky Ranch Longhorns, we are committed to utilizing the best herd sires available and are committed to striving to compliment our females with the best bloodlines of Texas Longhorn bulls.
Rather than being limited to one bull and taking a wait and see approach, we have selected bulls that have consistently passed on the desirable traits we wish to incorporate into our herd. Bulls selected have size and structural correctness "conformation"; substance and bone, value colors, horn, temperament and overall eye appeal and quality.
We have selected these bulls from some of the best Texas Longhorn producers with over sixty six years of experience. Timeline , Drop Box and Cut'n Dried featured below have been enlisted to service Sky Ranch Longhorn's females, located In Ohio, for 2019 calves.
In Texas, Sky Ranch Longhorns will be serviced by bulls owned and bred by Stockton Burton Ranches. This includes Tempter (bred by DCCI) High Voltage , Formal Attire , JS Game Changer , Komodo Dragon , Stocktons Cowboy , Deep State , Jenkins and Vandalay.
Bulls should have great dams. Before you look at our service sires, look at their dams. These are formidable longhorn females in every way.
