The Ranch was founded in 1965 by Anthony Christopher Furlow. We have ranged in various breeds along the way but the Rockin AF is now focused on Texas Longhorns and Red Angus. We are located in Elgin, Texas (30 min E of Austin), and are a family owned and operated ranch. In addition to the sale of Texas Longhorns and show quality Red Angus, we offer semen sales, hay sales, and artificial insemination and embryo transfer by two certified technicians.
Texas means Longhorn cattle and our desire has always been to raise Longhorns. Our opportunity came in the spring of 2012 when we were given two registered heifers by an owner who simply didn’t have the land to support all of his cattle. These two calves were calm, blended in with our Angus herd, and became the hit of our pastures. We named them Dolly and Reba and it was them, more than anything, that dispelled concerns we had about the Longhorn breed and moved us into raising Texas Longhorns. As most Longhorn breeders will attest, it wasn’t long until the infamous “bug” set in and we were on the hunt for more. We spent hours studying pedigrees and looking at pictures. We quickly found that the Longhorn community was full of great people. Through the generosity, sharing, friendship and overwhelming knowledge of other breeders, we were able to get our foot in the door and haven’t looked back. Our commitment is to genetics and production capabilities but our love is for the Longhorn breed. These animals have provided our family with a common cause and have created friendships that will last a lifetime. We have made it our goal to share our love of the Texas Longhorn with others whether they are first time buyers or experienced breeders.
We focus our program on strong genetics and pride ourselves on the gentle disposition of all of our animals.
