Rafter H Longhorns- Raising Trophy-winning Trophy Steers

Rafter H Longhorns has demonstrated abilities in choosing, producing, and raising high quality Texas Longhorn Trophy Steers.  Our initial objective was to have young steers for Laura to exhibit on the show circuit.  We have kept some of these steers until they are now true front-pasture trophy steers.  Some of them will need to move on to other pastures to give Laura room for younger steers.  Give us a call.
