Welcome to Roper's Ranch

Born and raised in Texas, my wife and I have always been intrigued by the Longhorn breed. After retiring from a career in banking in Nashville, we chose to spend our retirement in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Our Longhorn journey began in 2020 while driving down the highway and seeing a sign saying “Longhorns for sale”. After purchasing our first two cows, we had the realization that Longhorns are far more intelligent and docile than the Angus and Hereford cows we had previously raised, thus prompting us to acquire an additional twelve! As a result, we have assembled the beginning of an herd with bloodlines from some of the most elite cattle in the industry. Our mission is to become one of the premier Longhorn breeders by emphasizing genetics, confirmation, color and disposition. While attending numerous Longhorn functions we have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people within the Association. We are extremely proud to be part of the Longhorn family! Visitors are welcome any time!
