Texas Longhorn Embryos
During the last few years DCCI has provided TEXAS LONGHORN aficionados around the world with frozen embryos from select matings of well known pedigree cows and sires of the highest value. As a result, full blood Texas Longhorns are numerous in Brazil, Australia, Europe and soon to be in several other countries. Due to the economy of shipping frozen #1 embryos rather than live cattle, this is the modern method of germ cell transplantation. Frozen embryos are thawed and implanted into host cows who are adapted to the local terrain. Experienced embryologist are successfully finding a live calf rate with 50 to 75% success.
Embryos shipped to certain countries require extensive tests for the donor cow, semen sire and embryo collection procedures. These tests are provided by DCCI and recorded for nearly all countries. (Within the USA only the normal costs of semen shipments are incurred.)
Some countries have unusual rules which many believe are only trade barriers against the USA, however each of these can be circumvented with special permits by country of destination.
The following matings are available. Inventory with prices, sires and dams plus full pedigrees are attached. Contact DCCI for immediate shipment or contracts for future production.
The donor cows have been selected for this program due to numerous genetic qualities. These are described in the information section on each sire and donor. Please check this data and click onto sires names, grand sires and continue downline deep into the pedigrees for historic information and photos. Some cows are selected for muscle, correctness, horn, size, special colors and pedigrees. Not all cows are selected for all of the specific virtues. (For example, Zhi Hot is not known for horn length, but she is one of the most respected cows in the breed for size and gain) Check the notes for qualities desired.
The sires used are the most superior in the industry. New sires and donors will be added annually as more superior cattle are developed.
