Live Auction Items
Donated by John and Elizabeth Gibson
Show your Texas pride and own a registered longhorn steer! There will be a number of calves to choose from born at the Gibson’s ranch between March 30 and May 15 this year. We recommend you come select your calf during July/August when the calves are 4 to 5 months old. After you make your precious pick, the Gibsons will care for, wean, hand feed, and break this sweet animal to halter (and, if you choose, brand your calf). Your new longhorn will be delivered to you at six months of age. First stop that day will be to the Norris’s Lone Wolf Ranch for a photo with the Norris’s and your new addition.
