SIGN AT ENTRANCE

SIGN south of Attica on highway 41


Registered TEXAS LONGHORNS


Arch Acres is located in west/central Indiana in Fountain County.  We are mid-way between Attica and Covington near a small community, Fountain and the Portland Arch Nature Preserve.  We are 6 miles south of Attica (highway 41 south) or 6 miles north of interstate 74 (Veedersburg & Attica  exit) on highway 41  then 4 miles west on County Road 650 North. 


In general, 30 minutes west of Danville, IL  or  45 minutes SW of Lafayette, In  or  60 minutes N of Terre Haute, IN  or 60 minutes W of Indianapolis, IN.


Our longhorn sign is at the bottom of a hill - north side of the road.  You will see a log home and buildings with green metal roofs.  Google "arch acres" or "1290 W 650 N Attica, IN"  for directions and a map.  See the map on the contact page!  We are south of Attica...if google takes you north of Attica it is not right!!!


We first purchased 5 longhorns in 1999 and grew to 70 registered longhorns.  Currently we have reduced to  two bulls and  20 outstanding cows for breeding stock. 


In 2015  we purchased an outstanding, flashy, beefy  black & white bull with horns 85 inches tip to tip  from Ron Jones  "SHR Wow's Ace".   All we can say is "WOW!"  He is a proven producer.    Great genetics, size, color, and gentle!  Wow's heifers quickly sell for breeding stock.  2017-2018 sold out.  2019 heifers soon to be available!  Several bull calves have also sold.


Other major improvements include bloodlines with daughters from Roundup, JP Rio Grande,  Delta Lucky Ace, Fox Chex, Fifty-fifty, and  Commander EOT.

 

Arch Acres' goal is to promote the breed of longhorns.  We raise and sell pasture pets, show quality animals, breeding stock, steers and ropers when available.  Many new breeders begin with two or three young longhorns.  All animals are for sale. 


We are lifetime members of both the TLBAA (Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America) and  ITLA (International Texas Longhorn Association.  We are founding members of the MTLA ( Midwest Texas Longhorn Association), an affiliate of ITLA,  based in Indiana founded in 2010.  MTLA holds one local show every year.
