KING - is a son of Royal Mounty, out of a daughter of Texas Ranger named Miss Texas Ranger 262. He sports 64 ½" horn tip to tip & a solid red body color. He is well known as the sire of Zhivago. He often produces heavy thick bodies with a lot of bone & excellent dispositions. King sold at public auction at age 14 for $8,700 as a natural service sire. He is totally sound & a capable breeder even into his teenage years. The $8,700 price was the highest price paid for a natural service bull in 1995 of that age.  King has a huge fan club. He has the miraculous ability to sire tremendous sons & tremendous daughters.  He sires size, substance, horn, & body.  Due to his red color he has often been used on white cows or cows with a lot of white.  For best results, he should be used on cows with tight skin.  He was one of the first Longhorns to reach mid 60" horn status and is still competitively popular long after his passing.  Semen is economical. His daughters give abundant milk. He's very usable.

I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares.

George Washington

Political Quotes
If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.

Arkansas Supreme Court, 1878 -- In the days of Judge Isaac Parker
