This STUD will be coming back to 4 Oaks Farm in a couple weeks to be with a big majority of our cows!

We are VERY excited about his future and ours! We just want to thank our partners, John King and Kyle and Leah James, again for letting us in on a partnership on Sly Fox!!!

Took some snow pictures of the cows today. We had a couple days of some intense weather! They were all enjoying soaking up the sunshine even though it’s only 14 degrees! They are dirty and fluffy and this isn’t a “prime time” for pretty pictures of them but they are fat, happy and healthy and we think they are pretty no matter what time of the year! ❄️

This is our partnership bull with Kyle and Leah James and John King. His name is Sly Fox. We are so excited to welcome Sly back to 4 Oaks Farm in a couple months! This guy has grown up so much and he will be with several special ladies of ours very soon! His horn direction is everything we want to see, his color is amazing and he’s got a sire and dam that cannot he more beautiful so we are hoping for some beautiful cattle in the future from this guy!

Check him and all of our cattle out!

There was an old picture of halter breaking Snapdragon in my FB memories today. She is about 8 1/2 months old in this picture. Below is Marigold, Snapdragon’s heifer from last year. She is roughly 9 1/2 months old in this photo from today!! I just think it’s amazing how Snapdragon not only absolutely out-produced herself but she was a first time momma too!! It’s been fun to watch our baby grow up and go on to be an amazing momma having babies of her own! Marigold is going to be fun to bring to some futurities this year! We are pretty excited about this heifer!

Even in the freezing rain, these two SHINE! ☀️

Eternal Blossom and her daughter,
Guns N’ Roses 721 or, GNR as we are calling her! We are hopeful this sweet 20 Gauge heifer grows up to be as regal as her mother!

Miss Waneta June. This is one special cow. Today she turned 3 1/2 years old. Yesterday we measured her and she measured 84 1/2” TIP TO TIP. We also did a quick measurement of her TOTAL HORN- ready for this??? She measured 99 5/8” TOTAL HORN!!!

We are currently in the process or trying to AI her to the one and only MC Hangin Tuff!!!

Marianne Albanese helped us create this simplistic yet powerful ad for the upcoming Legacy! Keep your eyes peeled for it when you get your catalogue! We did something special for this and and we felt she deserved to be one to help showcase our herd at such a prestigious event.

While we cannot consign her, we have just flushed her mother, Shamrock Amazon Ann to Nifty Fifty and were successful with EIGHT embryos!! We have some tricks up our sleeve in the coming months so stay tuned!

We want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing all of our Longhorn friends in the coming months!

Snapdragon has officially hit the 3 1/2 year mark and we have no clue what she measures tip to tip but we are guessing somewhere well over the 70” mark. She is just such a beautiful cow and continues to just get better and better with time just like her mother, Eternal Blossom. She’s colored just like her sire, Viper Dragon. AND, we are SO excited about her first calf, Marigold, who we feel is an outstanding young heifer!

We are SO proud of this beauty!!

#PickupTruckConfession with 4 Oaks Farm

This was fun! Thanks Jaymie Feldmann for taking the time with us and letting us (me) talk on and on about our story and our cows!

If y’all haven’t figured it out by now, we’ve grown pretty passionate about raising longhorns and we want to raise and sell the best animals we possibly can. Let us know if we can ever help you with advice, help or with an animal from our farm. Goodness knows, we’ve gotten so much help and want to pay it forward. ❤️

MISS WANETA JUNE WINS US ANOTHER BRONZE!!!!

She took composite in her class of June 2018 females.

She measured:
83 3/8” TTT
99 1/4” TOTAL HORN

She is a true beauty and did an excellent job with her first calf this year. She had a beautiful bull calf that we are watching very closely! We are so proud of this girl!!!

(But y’all already knew that already. 🥰)

She did it!! Ettie did it! We are so proud to own this cow and she just cannot be more of an all around awesome cow. Now, she checks the 80” box too. She’s an AWESOME producer. Remember, we have a bull calf of hers by Nifty Fifty that we really believe in available!

Snapdragon and her big, beautiful heifer, Marigold. There’s just something about Mari... she’s got an INCREDIBLE amount of horn for her age. In fact, today she is 6 months old! We are SO excited about this girl. Snap has done a perfect first time job with her and I couldn’t be more proud of her! Two special girls right there!

Meadow Green Skittles and her beautiful heifer 5th Avenue. 5th Avenue’s horn growth is slower but if you look closely at her horn direction, all signs point towards TWIST! She’s so classy like her momma. This is one beautiful calf. She always stands out to me in the pasture.

I’d like to talk, a minute, about TINCUP 2258. This guy is really coming along and continues to prove to us that he’s worth keeping a bull.

This is a grandson of the great Fifty Fifty by way of the great Nifty Fifty! That means there are the powerhouse Vanilla Milkshake and Vanilla Puddin genetics in there.

He is a son of our awesome producer, Eternal Blossom. She has produced two futurity winning and high point heifers for us- Snapdragon 218 and Bird of Paradise.

He placed second in a tough class at the Great Northern Cheesehead Futurity. He is a very well-made light/blonde brindle with a bright blonde stripe running down his back. His horn direction rolls backward and he is on his way to measuring in the mid to upper 30’s TTT by his 1st birthday.

I have included photos of just a few animals in his pedigree as well as his POWERHOUSE half sisters!

This guy is built for production! He is also available. He will be too related to too many in our herd and he needs a great group of females very soon! We’ve raised him up and will show him at one more show for you! He is priced to sell! We might be willing to negotiate to the right program. We think he could be a great producer for the right program and want him to be successful! Check him out!

This is an accomplishment to us!!! We’ve watched so many make the gallery of horns. We’ve admired so many other cattle that didn’t belong to us and weren’t raised by us but NOW we have an animal in the gallery of horns!
Here’s what special about her, though... she is ONLY THREE!!! Although she may be buried in an ocean of other 80”+animals, SHE IS ONLY THREE!!!!!

And, to make it sweeter... she was bred and she is owned by us and she is a dream of an animal to own because not only is she beautiful but she is the sweetest girl too. ❤️❤️❤️ Love you Junie!!!

"The day before Christmas Eve, David and his sister loaded up and drove to Oklahoma. I went to Hobby Lobby and found a cow skin wrapped box, printed off a certificate of ownership, her picture, and her pedigree and wrapped it all up... He didn’t even believe it. He thought we were playing a joke on him, 'Thanks for the fake Longhorn, guys... No! There is really, for real, a real Texas Longhorn in our barn right now!' He closed the box, stood up, got in his truck and drove out to our house. He was SO excited to meet her! We spent much of Christmas Eve in our barn that night. It was so awesome." - Angie Wulf Read the rest of their fun story on their new #HiredHandPowered website! 4 Oaks Farm is located in McLean, Illinois and breeds Texas Longhorn cattle on their ranch: https://bit.ly/39au8UK
Just hanging out in the middle of everything, making sure no goodies are missed.....
Dang, I thought you were pregnant again. Nice buy. She is beautiful.
Here is the one and only picture I got this morning so everyone can get a sneak peek of the sweet little girl that was born on 4 Oaks Farm!! 😊🎀 I’m sure Angie will have a bunch more tomorrow!!! She sure is a cutie!!
Only a fellow breeder can totally understand the joy a wonderful animal like this one can bring to your life.
Thank you David Wulf of 4 Oaks Farm for acquiring some used street sweeper brushes for our cattle. I think we may have been replaced and we are not needed anymore for those hard to reach spots.
Looks like a very nice place
