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.

        RR Sweet Brindle Dust

RR Sweet Brindle Dust was 85" TTT with 114-1/2" TH (on 09-30-2017 at satellite measuring for the HSC) @ 6 Years & 11 Months. It is worth noting that at this time he is the second longest total horn bull in the industry (ever), putting him just 2-3/4" behind Cowboy Tuff Chex (117-1/2" on 09-30-17).

The big brindle bull from the River Ranch has smoked the competition.
2014 Winner of Bull Alley at the TLBAA Horn Showcase Event
2014 Winner of the TLMA Ultimate Bull @ Longhorn World Championship
 2015 Legacy Sale - He was the featured bull with semen packages offered. 
He is early horn growth at it's finest by having
80" TTT & 100" TH at three years old. It has been done before, but only once before he came along (by Cowboy Tuff Chex).

RR Escondido Red         


       RR Escondido Red was sold at the Mid West Longhorn Sale on 04-26-18 to Jim O'Connor with Hope Creek Cattle Company. Jim is now selling his straws. RR Escondido Red's DOB is 10-20-2013, His Dam is RR Red Clover (112" TH) and Sire is Cowboy Up Chex. He was 42-3/4" at twelve months, 70-1/2" TTT at 24 months of age and over 80" TTT before he was 36 months old.

It is worth noting that the longhorn industry has not seen this much total horn on a bull this young - 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. He is almost 47 months old now and he is 83-11/16" TTT x 112-5/8" TH.
            2017 Horn Showcase - He won a bronze total horn and composite. His TTT is exceptional, but his total horn is actually the best that our industry has ever seen. He is AI Certified.
