Standing Up For Israel’s Farmers

The Israel Longhorn Project is an educational and cattle crossbreeding improvement project helping Israel, East Africa and if possible Jordan. Israel needs desert cattle that fit its desert environment; that breed of cattle is Texas longhorn.

  1. Longhorns can eat invasive shrubs and cacti (decreasing fire hazards)
  2. Longhorns have higher reproduction rates and very low loss rates
  3. Longhorns have excellent calving and mothering abilities
  4. Longhorns solve the problem of rising feed costs
  5. Longhorns protect their calves from predators
  6. Longhorns are highly resistant to diseases

The Problems We Face

Israeli cattle producers are trying to improve their cattle’s adaptation to the environment but are failing. They started out with the best America cattle breeds that feed on grass year round, had no predator and little or no disease or parasite resistance and put them into a semi-desert, semi-tropic hostile environment where they did not fit and expected them to function as if they were in America.

How We Will Help

The Israel Longhorn Project will be using 21st century cattle handling methods, called Stockmanship, and ecological grazing techniques, called Strategic Grazing. Both will be taught to ranchers. This will decrease meat from being damaged, turning into dark meat. Learn more...
