Texas Longhorn Cattle, Arp

My friends Roger & Laura Wiggins Norris raise these wonderful cows at their farm in Arp. They once had the largest herd in Georgia and though they’ve reduced their stock, it’s still an impressive bunch.

Texas Longhorns are a low-maintenance, high-yield variety; they’re one of the few Spanish varieties brought to North America in the pre-colonial era to have survived.

Many thanks to Laura & Roger for allowing me to share these images.

  1. Very cute cattle there. I seem to remember similar cattle at my uncle’s farm in Colquitt County, unless I am remembering wrong.
