That the Texas Longhorns achieve puberty earlier than any other bovine breed, and their calves stand sooner after birth than most other beef cattle breeds. The Texas Longhorn was a big contribution for bringing Texas out of finanicial depression after the Civil War. The Texas Longhorn was close to extinction, but books and stories written were instrumental in saving them. One of the biggest influences was author J. Frank Dobie who wrote "The Longhorn" which has had a major impact in the growing popularity of The Texas Longhorn cattle.

Welcome to Triple F Ranch.
We are Chris and Heather Fischer. We are located in East Texas in the small-town community of Slocum.
This is our story: We are family operated ranch. We started with a small herd in 2013 with a few Texas Longhorns that we purchased from friends and it very quickly became a passion. We loved them so much that we gave up our commercial cattle business and put all of our time and energy into The Texas Longhorns. We continue to focus on breeding a beautiful healthy herd that is hand raised. Our main goal is to produce quality cattle with great color, confirmation, disposition, and good solid horn growth while maintaining a solid genetic foundation. We devote a great deal of time in the pasture with our animals and love sharing this with others. We continue to learn new things daily about these beautiful animals and will always have an open door (pasture) policy. Our biggest joy is sharing with our children and grandchildren. There truly isn’t anything more rewarding or enjoyable than seeing the excitement from the grandchildren & our friends children when they are able to run and play in the pasture with the Longhorns or get excited from feeding our calves. I hope you enjoy our herd, if you need any further information or have any questions please contact us.
