Each year, the Guiness World Record has been broken during the Horn Showcase measuring event hosted by the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America (TLBAA). Registered Texas Longhorns are measured at either a satellite location or the event venue while cattle are on display.
Previously held in Fort Worth, Texas, the TLBAA is pleased to announce 2015 Horn Showcase will be held at the Comanche County Fairgrounds in the Great Plains Coliseum located in Lawton, Oklahoma on October 1-3, 2015.
A little known fact about the TLBAA-although the headquarters is located in Fort Worth, the association’s first membership meeting was in Lawton, Oklahoma in 1964. Today, Texas Longhorn Breeders Association has 3,500 members and more than 550,000 animals registered.
“The TLBAA Horn Showcase steering committee looked at various venues and locations prior to choosing the Lawton facility. The financial and event support pledged from the Lawton-Ft. Sill Chamber of Commerce, along with the ability to conduct the entire event under virtually one roof will lend itself to making the 2015 Horn Showcase the prestigious event that tradition dictates,” said Barbara Linke, TLBAA President/CEO. “More than 550 animals from 20 states and Canada will be exhibited. With 2.5 persons accompanying each animal for an average hotel stay of three days, the economic impact realized in Lawton nears $2.2 million.”
During the event you can expect to see many wonderful exhibits of registered TexasLonghorns, as well as experience measurements, non-haltered shows,
