  1. Shalom,

    As the world struggles to feed more people, there is something that you can to help bring a vibrant and sustainable cattle industry to arid regions of Israel, the Middle East and Africa. For a small sustaining donation... in any amount... you can help with an historically important project to introduce Texas Longhorn Cattle to desert ranch lands that offers the potential to help sustain the environment and develop a native cattle industry that... over the years... can feed millions.

    In the US, the wealth of our nation was built in part on the introduction of Longhorn Cattle into the arid lands of Texas. With the coming of the railroads, the Texas beef industry helped feed a nation. Now you can help build an important and sustainable food industry for the world’s future generations. For more information, go to:


    Much like planting the seed from an apple... the LonghornProject.org is planting the seed of food self-reliance and self-sufficiency for people around the world. Please join us in making this vision a faster reality with your sustaining donation. This small step can mean so much to so many people.
