Mountain Diamond Longhorns is a small farm in West Virginia, dedicated
to breeding for quality genetics, meat, and horns.
We have 4 different lines in our gene
pool. Butler, Yates, YO, and WR. In the Butler breed we have descendants of
Classic and Lady Butler, and are favored for exceptional horn growth.
Most of our cows, as well as Mountain Diamond
are mostly the Butler breed. Several of our cows have YO genes, tracing
back to Bold Ruler and YO Sam Houston. We also have a good mix of WR (Wildlife
Refuge) cattle on the sire or dam side. The WR type--believed by many--typifies the
old-time Texas Longhorn.
Also available are cross calves, between Longhorns and
We feel there is great potential in
1. Genes for high fertility
2. Calving ease
3. Disease and parasite resistance
4. Hardiness and Longevity
5. Thriftiness, the ability to use low quality forage
6. And quality meat with low cholesterol
