International Texas Longhorn Association Coming to Sulphur Springs
The International Texas Longhorn Association (ITLA) was founded in 1990 and currently has just under 1300 members. ITLA registers pure Texas Longhorn cattle, documents pedigrees, has a member driven show and awards system. ITLA is the only Texas Longhorn registry where members get to nominate and elect by mail-in ballot their own President and all officers/directors.
The annual Convention and Show moves around to be fair to all members. It has been staged in Houston, Colorado Springs, Michigan, Virginia, Louisville, Cloverdale, Oklahoma, Fort Worth, Austin, Columbia, Glen Rose and Houston.
The three-ring all cattle event will include the ITLA Futurity, halter and non halter judged shows, educational profit seminars, the Elite Heifer Sale, the International All-Star Futurity, General Membership Meeting, Longhorn Legacy Social, Directors Meetings, Miss ITLYA Pageant, banquet with great food, committee meetings and pleasant times to visit with like-minded cattle folks.
The Hopkins County Civic Center is proud to host the 2019 Convention and Show. Livestock will begin to arrive Wednesday October 9th. The public is encouraged to visit the show, and learn about this historic breed. Folks interested in owning their own Texas Longhorn should attend the Heifer Auction on the evening of Saturday October 12th.
All events will be judged by ITLA approved judges. The uniqueness of Texas Longhorn cattle with their many points of special identity demands judges who have owned, buy, sell and regularly involve themselves with the industry.
ITLA owns their own “clear and free” Austin stone world headquarters at Glen Rose, Texas. For more information on this national event call the [email protected] 254 898 0157.
