Harm-N-E Longhorns


Set Up/Design: Simple Template
Functionality Package: Wrangler

Harm-N-E Longhorns was established by Clarence and Ingrid Dekens in 2015 when they purchased their first cows. However, their farming journey started much earlier. Clarence and Ingrid both grew up on farms, and when they married in 1981, they worked with Clarence’s parents on a dairy farm in Listowel, Ontario. In 1988, they moved to Clinton, Ontario (where both had spent time growing up) and bought a chicken farm. Clarence has always had a passion for cattle, so in addition to chickens, they raised veal and later beef cattle. Since ​2015, they have jumped headfirst into the Longhorn world and have met many great Longhorn friends along the way!

Rocking RW & Lazy D Ranch


Set Up/Design: Mix & Match
Functionality Package: Buckaroo

In April of 2014, Rocking RW & Lazy D Ranch was established. While moving to their new ranch, Donna & Rickey Weaver stopped to take some photos of a few Longhorns and had the idea to get one or two of their own. After purchasing three heifers from David Hillis at the Double Helix Ranch, they ​realized three just wasn't enough and have been growing since. They are now members of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and Texas Southwest Cattle Raisers Association.

Riske Ranch is a small family owned longhorn ranch located just outside of Lampasas, Texas. The owners, Dwayne and Jill Riske, started th​eir ranch to escape the hustle bustle of nearby Austin and get back to their small-town roots. Having both grown up in the little town of Brenham, Texas they were raised around livestock and a farm lifestyle.

After purchasing the ranch solely for deer hunting, Dwayne discovered a passion for ​Longhorn cattle and purchased a small herd of registered longhorns. From there, he learned more about the breed, colors, and horn size that make them stand out next to any other cattle breed. As time went on, the whole family became part of this adventure.
