intro

With dreams come goals...with maturity of dreams and education come redefining and retooling of goals. Such as it was for the Jones family when years ago a dream to own a Longhorn cow came to be. And who could have predicted that over two decades later a cow such as Delta Lucky Lady would come to such prominence? The first cow was purchased because of one thing - it was a Longhorn. As time went on, one cow named ‘Missy’ turned into a herd in excess of fifteen. Soon after it wasn’t enough just to have Longhorn cattle. The dream started to mature into what has now become Hoosier Longhorns. A strong focus on education began and the direction toward a goal that once seemed straight-forward took a detour. Suddenly the Jones family weren’t satisfied with just raising Longhorn cattle. We wanted to raise Longhorns which would prove to not only contribute superior genetics to the breed but also be game changers. For the last five years, We at Hoosier Longhorns has been improving our herd’s genetics by acquiring the absolute top-of-the-line bloodlines from other respected, innovative Longhorn breeders and by using the best bulls possible. As with any dream or goal, especially when dealing with genetics, you also need to get Lucky. The Hoosier Longhorn genetics will continue to grow stronger in the years to come by building on the genetics that produced Delta Lucky Lady. The dream continues and the goal is ever changing...

DELTA LUCKY LADY Delta Lucky Lady possesses all of the traits that serious Texas Longhorn breeders are working hard to create. And while she is the undisputed TTT record holder for any heifer her age currently or those who came before, what really makes her special is that her pedigree is shot through and through, top to bottom with horn predictability. We don’t want a cow or bull due to a jump in genetics grow a ton of horn, but never reproduce themselves let alone out produce themselves. Our goal is to raise animals who contribute to the advancement of quality and desirable traits in the next generation. As history has proven, not all big horned cows can out produce themselves. However, one cow leads the pack in that regard - and that cow is none other then BL Rio Catchit owned by Bob and Pam Loomis. When you look at that great cow’s pedigree, it’s clear that she is genetically engineered to be what she is as well as pass on those superior traits to her offspring and she has...three times in a row!

She is an example of the next level that we are all trying to produce. Mark Hubbell

More than just a couple of the Longhorn breeders, who are held in industry high regard, agree that “Lady” is a cow who also has the pedigree to not only back her industry changing horn growth but also is genetically engineered to reproduce herself and potentially out produce herself. Her sire LLL Lucky (who was sired by Maximus ST 322) at 24 months set a new TTT record and her dam, Delta Dawn is sired by the great bull JR Grand Slam who can also take the credit for siring the bull JP Rio Grande who was a total game changer in the industry. On Delta’s bottom side you’ll find a bull lending his frame and horn producing genetics called 585 Overwhelming Toro.

We are using Delta Dawn as the cornerstone to Hoosier Longhorns breeding program. And while we have never flushed “Lady” we are retaining the same genetic recipe through Delta Dawn and LLL Lucky. With a full sibling to “Lady” on the ground and a few more on the way we decided to allow another serious Longhorn breeder the chance to integrate these powerful, herd improving genetics into their program. And while we realize that lightning may never strike twice in exactly the same spot again, we’re reluctantly willing to take the chance. Only time will tell if any of “Lady’s” full sisters ever equal or surpass her. “Lady” has made a huge impact in our families. She is gentle cow who loves to be hand-fed treats, scratched behind her massive horns and have her back scratched. It’ll leave a hole in our hearts not to be able to look out in the front pasture, call Lady and see the beautiful paint figure with the huge sweeping horns walk toward the fence looking for attention. But we have solace in the fact that any person who is the last person with their hand in the air when the gavel falls will come to love her as much as all of us here at Hoosier Longhorns. We have been blessed to have had such an incredible animal if only for a few brief years...


Could go down as one of the greatest heifers in our history. Bear Davidson

BOLT

70” at 33 Months with 17” Bases

She is bred to Bolt and could calve by sale time or shortly thereafter. Bolt is a big, colorful bull who has a long frame with a lot of leg under him and as a 2 yr old has safely crossed the 70” mark.

betty zane The experts say, if they have it then they more than likely will pass it on. I think most will agree upon personal inspection of Betty Zane once they see this young heifer’s conformation, gentle disposition, heavy sweeping horns, color and pedigree that she has “it”. Her bottom side genetics are full of animals who top out in the upper-end 70’s and on her topside, she not only has a grand sire who is well into the 80’s but her sire is also in club 80! And what’s more, her horns are growing in the same shape and direction as her famous sire Drag Iron’s are! This is a heifer who comes with built-in predictability in her genetics. She is bred to Bolt and could calve by sale time or shortly thereafter. Bolt is a big colorful bull who has a long frame with a lot of leg under him and as a 2 yr old has safely crossed the 70” mark.

If you’re a breeder into a bull with big bases, well lets just say you would be impressed with this young bull. Bolt boasts bases that exceed 17”! And let’s not forget his pedigree. When you look at Bolts pedigree names like Boomerang CP, Coach, Impacts Rear Admiral and Zhivago appear. He’s not one to be over looked just because he’s young. His first calves will be hitting the ground this spring. All the great ones started somewhere as an unknown... The calf out of the planned mating could prove to be special. Here at Hoosier Longhorns both our short and long term goals are to produce animals that no matter where they go can consistently out-produce themselves. We not only want to build successful cattle but successful clients as well. Your success is a Hoosier Longhorns success...
