2005 Heifers

Rafter H Longhorns- Breeding for Excellence

Rafter H Longhorns in now on its third crop of Emperor's Echo calves.   We have retained every heifer from his first two crops of heifers that started in September 2002.  The older of this first crop have just now had their first calves out of Turbo Jet (see below).  We also now are getting our first calves out of Refuge Chex (R'ex) and Switch Hitter.  We are going to want to see these calves at weaning before we make decisions about which ones might be for sale..
