Silver Star Ranch
We founded Silver Star Ranch in 2003 with our sights set to raise Texas Longhorns. 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! Check out our Blood Lines.
Silver Star Ranch is a member of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association and International Texas Longhorn Association. We are located in Celina, Texas just 50 miles 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, and that cross breeding with other cattle has not occurred along the blood line. 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 to insure a pure bred, prior to purchasing.
Miniature Longhorn Cows are 45” or less at the hook at 3 years of age. Miniature Longhorn Bulls are 48" or less at the hook at 3 years of age. 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.
