    Depends on what you like, but just remember that longhorn is a lean, mean cow. The brisket on the longhorns we raised was leaner than grocery store chicken breast. Don't expect marbling of the highest order, and pick cuts you like accordingly.

    Butch, I bought 1/4 of a black angus last fall along with friends who bought the rest of the cow. It was pasture raised by friends and butchered by a local slaughter/packing house. I called the packing house and asked their advice, then had my share cut into steaks, roasts, stew beef and some ground for spaghetti sauce, chili, etc.

    As much as I like to cut stuff up, that meat had to be piled into the freezer as soon as I got home with it, mine plus my sister's 1/4. I just had them do it all to my specs to make my life a little easier. BTW, there are folks here raising longhorns, American bison and Watusi also.

    This is what my wife and I do. Works great for us. never needed to specify any more at the local butcher shop. We get about half our ground beef in "bulk" and half preformed into patties.
