WHY HALTOM HOLLAR RANCH LONGHORNS ARE UNIQUE:
* The herd is in top body condition and health. The animals have high quality protein tubs, lose minerals, salt blocks, lush pastures and good hay throughout the year. During the colder months they also get a custom beef mix to keep a good body weight. Many of the cows are carrying valuable embryos so we do everything we can for their optimal health.
* A cow ready to have a calf is checked on twice a day. When the calf is born it is given an oral dose of Nursemate ASAP with Immu-Prime. It includes B-12 and helps the calf's system get the maximum benefit from the mother's colostrum. While the calf is getting the dose we pet it all over its body to get it use to human contact.
* The herd gets a rotation of medicines for lice, worms and flies on a regular basis. We administer yearly booster shots and provide any medical attention as needed.
* We have several spring fed ponds providing them with good clear water. In addition to lush Kentucky pastures, a portion of the property is hard wood forest in the hills. They have a variety of interesting things to do and forage to eat.
