What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Conservation Breeding

Working in cooperation with our 501(c)3 sister organization the Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Conservancy, the CTLR uses heritage genetics identified by Conservancy research projects to ensure the preservation of the historic, original Texas Longhorn for generation to come. The CTLR utilizes GeneSeek, Inc.’s LIMS parentage analyses to assure accuracy of the pedigree database it maintains. The CTLR trains breeders in inspection criteria to identify historically correct phenogroups and exclude animals exhibiting evidence of introgression from other breeds, which have caused the Texas Longhorn to become Critically Endangered according to The Livestock Conservancy.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In cooperation with geneticists worldwide, the CTLR seeks to become the authority on conservation Texas Longhorn management by promoting genetics that supports the mission of the Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Conservancy. Members of the CTLR are boots on the ground creating a market for this breed that will result in its survival. The CTLR currently has 95 active members using conservation genetics. We would like to triple the membership and hence numbers of pure cattle in the next decade. This will only happen through educational programs and successes realized by our members. The CTLR is devoted to do all things as may be in any good interest of these cattle, including the establishment of high credibility through total integrity of our reputation as well as the creation and maintenance of shared fairness among all members of the registry, and none of which shall be for monetary profit of this registry.
1. Authority Status
2. Triple Membership
3. Triple Cattle Numbers
4. Educate Breeders
5. Integrity Transparency

Our strategy is two-fold; to financially support the education and scientific research of the Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Conservancy, which gives our message credibility; and to promote the use of these valuable genetics by recognizing honorable breeders and support their success through programs that benefit their membership. The CTLR offers to breeders assistance in the keeping of quality records backed by scientific evidence that ensures diversity and sound selection. We have a social support network with open communication of our members that assist in education, information exchange, ​and sales.
1. Support Conservancy’s Mission
2. Promote Use of Conservation Genetics
3. Recognize Breeders
4. Assist Breeders’ Records & Management Practices
5. Social Network

Our working board and active membership are driven by the love of these animals. Our shared goal is to ensure the breed’s survival. We use social media, our own website, and marketing materials, and take advantage of access to scientific data available through genetics laboratories to inform the public of the value of this breed, the integrity of these genetics, and access to breeders. Our members are our greatest asset. It is through their successes that our goals are achieved.

We developed breed standards for phenotypic traits of historically correct, genetically pure Texas Longhorn cattle. These physical attributes are substantiated by our ever-growing​ database of genotypes. Working with geneticists in the US, Spain, Portugal, Uruguay, and Mexico we continue to strive to more comprehensively define the Texas Longhorn as a unique criollo breed. We are in need of improved software analyses to more completely identify the presence and percentages of other breeds in cattle used for conservation breeding.
