​Whitlock Longhorns was established by Dean and Sandra Whitlock and is located on their 250 acre ranch in Mingus, Texas just 30 minutes West of Weatherford, Texas. They chose to breed and raise longhorns not just because of their beauty, gentle nature, and low maintenance, but because they are a symbol of the history of Texas and the hopes and dreams of all those people who came to settle the Western United States.

​The Whitlock Longhorn philosophy: Invest in the finest genetics available that will have the greatest probability of producing the highest quality Texas Longhorns in both horn length and a gentle disposition.

About​ the ​​​​​Longhorn Ventures website:

Mike & Linda Metcalfe
Set Up/Design: ​​​Mix & Match
Functionality Package: Wrangler

"We look at our Texas longhorn cattle like a work of art. I love watching them as they leave me in awe of God’s diverse creation within a cattle breed. Longhorns have so much variety of color, size, horn type and length. Not only are they beautiful but their meat is very lean, they calve easily, are hearty, resilient to disease and competent at foraging for food. My favorite ones have the twisted horn and brindle color but I find beauty in all of them."
