VALUE

Superior value is achieved more by correct matings, than matings of costly cattle. By DCC experimenting with the leading sires, the data shows most success comes with Tuff, Rio, Top Caliber, Saddlehorn, and Rodeo Max with daughters of Drag Iron.

When something is beautiful at DCC — it just keeps happening. Sons, daughters and semen available. (Not available in auctions) *All cows pictured, born/raised at DCC, sired by Drag Iron — semen $150.

Letter from the

President The September issue of the Longhorn Drover is dedicated to the upcoming Convention and Championship Show. 29 years ago the founders of the ITLA understood the importance of coming together and placed in the By Laws a mandate to meet once a year to provide members an opportunity to have a say in the running of their association. Over the years the event has grown much more than the ITLA Founders could have envisioned, the schedule is packed full of activities for those who have a passion for Longhorns. A dedicated group has been working diligently since last year to bring you the best Convention and Championship Show experience possible. This is your association and your event, we hope to see you in Sulphur Springs.
