The majestic Texas Longhorn is an icon of Texas and the Southwest culture. It represents ranching, the American cowboy and the pioneer. The Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America (TLBAA) is dedicated to preserving this symbol of our heritage by protecting the pedigree, supporting and recognizing breeders, and educating the public on the numerous benefits the Texas Longhorn offers cattlemen.
The Mountain and Plains Texas Longhorn Association (MPTLA) is the local TLBAA affiliate for Colorado. As the one of the oldest affiliates of the TLBAA, the MPTLA strives to recognize and implement the values and principles of the TLBAA. These include:
Providing guidelines for desirable breeding practices
Promoting public awareness of the breed
Advancing the scientific knowledge of historical and future breeding practices.
It's our goal to preserve the legacy and distinct characteristics of the Texas Longhorn while ensuring its purity and posterity.
