The current longest horned bull in the world is Cowboy Tuff Chex (December 2023). For bulls born between 2016 - 2017 Tuff Cowboy DC pulls out a narrow win at Horn Showcase measuring contest that was held October 12-14, 2023. Holding his Club 100 Bulls 3rd place position over the 2nd longest horned Cowboy Tuff Chex son M.C. Hangin' Tuff.
One of the great things about Tuff Cowboy DC is that they have brought this bull to the Horn Showcase six years straight allowing Registered Texas Longhorn bull enthusiasts an opportunity to see him in person year after year.

Does your toolbox just have a hammer and screwdriver?
Of course not, because you need a variety tools to get a variety of jobs done. Tuff Cowboy DC is that special tool. He is a special bull having both a 100" sire and dam. While he is currently the second oldest bull in Club 100 Bulls Factoids, he was the 4th to get there.

Take advantage of this little known opportunity
Over the last few years Tuff Cowboy DC progeny have been on a consistent climb in average sale prices. While in many cases I would be telling you that investing in an older bull with less than 100 progeny would be risky, this is opportunity that is a hidden gem. I'll let you do the math, but when you look at how many sons or daughters Tuff Cowboy DC has created and you compare how many have made it to 70, 80, 90 and yes even 100" tip to tip, you will find that Tuff Cowboy DC is one of the best kept secrets in the industry today.
When you are considering horn genetics for your program, and yes we are focusing on a single trait for a moment, Tuff Cowboy DC has three 100" ancestors. Consider this, his son HL Jango who is over 90" tip to tip has four 100" ancestors. While his daughter SPL Tuff Cowgirl who is over 100" tip to tip will be bringing FIVE 100" ancestors to every calf she produces. A few years ago, this would be crazy talk, but today this is one of the few ways to pack a huge volume of Club 100 genetics into one pedigree.
