Longhorns are always cheap. Have to look them in the mouth to age them.

500 to 700 sounds more like a Corriente than a longhorn, may not be, I would give 400.00 for some real longhorn and put a Char. bull on them and they will make money.

thats what a big cattle trader was doing on the farm i bought from him... he had 60 long horns with a char bull. you couldn't tell those calves were longhorn cross until they were at least 500 lbs+ .. he'd take them in at 400 lbs and get great money. he said most of them he had since he was teenager and he's like 50 years old.
