Beautiful animal.
I am thinking of raising a cow for beef.
What are longhorns like, disposition wise for someone who has never raised cattle?

The have the disposition of a cow, that can vary from mean to timid. A longhorn has somewhat different meat than some other cattle. They also can be raised on somewhat different food. You ought to pick the beef you raise based on how they will grow on the feed you can provide and the kind of meat they will produce when finished, not so much on how they look or if they have big sad eyes or cool long horns.

I don't think I would raise a Longhorn for my first one. You need something like a yound Poled Herford (no horns) then when you get used to dealing with them you could get one with horns. The horns are not needed if you want meat only. It is just another thing they can hurt you with and they know how to use them! Mark H.

Not to many around here. They may be more now that people want less fat and colestrial in there meat. That is why she is raising the Longhorns and Highlands. Mark H.

How do you cook that horn, boil it or bake it?

A real good set of Long Horns can bring up to $900.00 or more. Not sure I would want to cook them up for dinner. They do have to be a nice set for that price tho. Mark H.
