Pedernales River - The river flows through the north end of the ranch


Welcome to our web site for the River Ranch. Our Ranch policy is directed at breeding quality longhorn cattle for the best combination of horn, confirmation, color, and disposition that we can accomplish. A lot of our breeding program is based on Tip to Tip (TTT) horn measurements and projections. We breed about thirty five cows a year to the bulls listed below. Our policy is to breed only cows with 70" minimum TTT or projection. We keep twenty recipient cows for carrying the embryos from a few of our best cows.

        RR Sweet Brindle Dust

RR Sweet Brindle Dust was 83-5/8"" TTT with 109-7/16" TH (on 10-03-2015 at HSC) @ 4 Years & 11 Months 

The big brindle bull from the River Ranch has smoked the competition this fall
2014 Winner of Bull Alley at the TLBAA Horn Showcase Event
2014 Winner of the TLMA Ultimate Bull at the Longhorn World Championship
 2015 Legacy Sale - He will be the feature bull with discounted semen packages offered. 

              Note - Total Horn, there are three bulls with more Total Horn. He will pass two of them
              next year and he is gaining fast on the leader (Cowboy Tuff Chex) with only 2-1/2" to go.

RR Sweet Brindle Dust was 79-1/2" TTT & 100-3/8" TH @ three years old (11-2-2013)
      His bases are 16-3/4", He was 80" TTT before he was 38 months old.

He is one of those rare bulls that is
80" TTT & 100" TH. It has been done before, but only once at a younger age (Cowboy Tuff Chex).

  RR Sweet Brindle Dust was 66" TTT at twenty four months old and 72" TTT at twenty eight months old and 76" at 32 months old. He was 78" at 34 months. To date, his horn growth makes him one of the best bull prospects in the industry. We took him to the Horn Showcase before he was two years old and he swept the bronzes in his age class. 

We did not have a breeding pasture to for him until he was 2-1/2 years old. Since, he has had his own pasture with about fifteen great cows. We are just starting to see what his calves look like. 
Conventional Semen @ $100 a straw.
2.1 Sexed Semen @ Sold Out
5.0 Sexed Semen at $350.00 a straw

Note: Sexed semen means - for heifers only.

RR Escondido Red         

       RR Escondido Red is a new comer to the longhorn world. His DOB is 10-20-2013, His Dam is RR Red Clover and Sire is Cowboy Up Chex. He was 70-1/2" TTT at 24 months of age (10-20-15). His Total Horn measurement is about 24" more than his TTT.  It is worth noting that the longhorn industry has not seen that much total horn on a bull of that age - ever. Not even Cowboy Tuff Chex. This young bull was 100-1/2" TH at 32 months of age. That is the youngest a bull has ever been measured with over 100" TH.
            Horn Show Case and Longhorn Extravaganza - He won a bronze for both of his categories at both events. His TTT is exceptional, but his total horn is actually the best that our industry has ever seen. He is AI Certified and we are s
elling straws for $100. We will also pasture breed your cows to him for $400 each. It is the same pasture breeding deal we have done with SBD.
