Each year records are broken as Texas Longhorn cattle are officially measured while competing for the longest horn length & title at this unique industry event. Hosted by the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association, this annual event draws more than 500 spectators and participants from all across the world. The HSC brings together the very best Texas Longhorn cattle in established classes to showcase the breed to cattlemen, future breeders and fans.
More than just a measuring contest, this weekend event features numerous networking & learning opportunities like the HSC Futurity, Breeders Round-table, two cattle sales; Bred & Owned Heifer Sale and the Horn Showcase Sale with outstanding consignments from top programs across the country. Bull & Embryo Alley is always a favorite with specials only offered at HSC. We close out the event with the TLBAA Banquet and awards ceremony where we recognize our newest HSC winners.
