About​ BC Mello Longhorn Cattle Co.



​Animals/Breed: ​Texas Longhorns
 Goldendale, WA
Bill & Cindy Mello

"The Mello family has always had a passion for horses and cattle. Mom Cindy has loved Longhorns her entire life. As a kid, she would sit in front of the TV, watching old western movies, and dreaming of having her own cattle someday. She thought the Longhorns were the coolest cattle. 

Dad Bill was a rodeo clown in his younger days. Bill and his buddy Butch owned a Brahma named Bologna. He was a gentle giant, weighing in at about 1700 lbs. Their children love cattle, too. Daughter Alyson was only six months old at the time, but she loved to sit on Bologna and pat his big hump.

They’ve have always had horses and cattle - mainly roping stock for the kids to practice on for rodeos – at their ranch in Goldendale, Washington. They host many equine clinics, horsemanship clinics and even a few mule clinics throughout the year, utilizing their 10-acre mountain trail course. They sold their Corriente cattle after the kids flew the coop.

In 2021, Cindy saw an ad for a Longhorn bull. She purchased BC Brave at Heart aka Turbo as a “yard ornament” for her husband, Bill. She wanted him to steer and train Turbo, recalling his rodeo clown days.

While doing research on Longhorn breeders in the Pacific Northwest, Cindy connected with Scott and Amelia Picker of A&S Land and Cattle. Scott answered all her questions and was very helpful and encouraging. The herd of one “yard ornament” quickly grew when the Mellos purchased three cows from A&S. They entered their bull Turbo in the Oregon Trail Futurity competition, coming home with a buckle. Their love of Longhorns grew that weekend as they purchased another cow."
