Post-civil war, the Texas Longhorns were driven up the trail and then shipped back East via the railroad. In this amount of time, the breed was almost driven to extinction. With large English influence breed of cattle being integrated into the country for heavier carcasses and better average daily gains continued to hold the Texas Longhorns at bey. There were a handful of ranches that saw the importance of preserving this iconic breed and worked to save them. These 7 families are still recognized and their breed registry with all lines of cattle tracing back to them. In 1964, the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America was founded in Lawton, OK, which was later moved to Fort Worth, TX where it remains today.
The name for this event reflects the Legends that not only help preserve this breed, but also the Pioneers of yesteryear that helped build a fantastic nation that we still hold near and dear to our heart.
