TLBAA Registered Miniature Texas Longhorn Breeders
ITLA Registered Miniature Texas Longhorn Breeders
Silver Star Ranch
We founded Silver Star Ranch in 2003 with our sights set to raise Texas Longhorns. We currently are one of the oldest Mini Longhorn Ranches in the US. Due to the Ranch's size, and through years of investigations and reviews, we decided to raise miniature cattle. Our search for the Texas Miniature Longhorn Breed allowed us to select from some of the best breeders in the USA to create what we think is the best of the breed. Utilizing these magnificent animals as our main herd stock, we look forward to creating some of the most distinguished Bulls and Cows of the Texas Miniature Longhorns in the USA!
Silver Star Ranch is a member of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association and International Texas Longhorn Association. We were located in Celina but recently moved to Collinsville Texas on Lake Ray Roberts north of Dallas Texas. We are a breeder of Texas Miniature Longhorns. All of our Texas Miniature Longhorns are registered with the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association (TLBAA) and International Texas Longhorn Association (ITLA). Longhorns that are registered insure the purity of the breed. The purpose of the Associations is to protect the unique heritage of the Texas Longhorn, to preserve the purity of the breed and to promote Texas Longhorns as a distinct breed. So when you are considering buying Miniature Texas Longhorns make sure they are registered with TLBAA and/or ITLA as Miniatures Which is designated in the registration number as CM BM or SM
Miniature Longhorn Cows are 45” or less at the hook at maturity. Miniature Longhorn Bulls are 48" or less at the hook at maturity. Our goal is to breed Miniature Longhorns that are all 42” or less with most being between 38” to 40”. Some of our latest heifers are very tiny, weighing in at 20lbs at birth and only 19” tall with wonderful colors.
What we love the most about longhorns is their color and that you never know what you are going to get. We have had solid colored cows produce multicolor calves and multicolor cows produce solid color calves. And each time a cow has a calf it is different from the previous calves she has had. It's like a box of chocolates... you never know what you are going to get. Each one born is truly a suprise.
