breeds. It was developed in the early 19th century and officially
recognized in 1835, since which time it has recently been considerably
improved. The Angus was cross bred with the Texas long horn to improve
its "watering ability". Bulls average around 2100 lbs. and cows 1660
The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to 7 feet (2.1 m) tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows, and 36 to 80 inches (0.91 to 2.0 m) tip to tip for bulls. Similar cattle were imported by Spanish colonists into other parts of North America, including California and Florida.
