BARNESVILLE, Ohio — Dickinson Cattle Co. of Barnesville, Ohio, won the 2015 Longhorn World Championship in Oklahoma City Oct. 24.

The final calculations were in the Cox Convention Center, in downtown Oklahoma City.

The Texas Longhorn Marketing Alliance World Championship is a horn-measuring event with tip-to-tip measurement and total horn. Measurements are calculated to 1/16th of an inch by a team of horn masters.

In recent years, Texas Longhorn cattle have sold for amounts above $150,000, and many were sporting record-wide serpentined spreads.

The alliance hosts satellite events across the nation, before the last group of cattle are measured publicly in Oklahoma City.

Dickinson Cattle Co. entered two Ohio herd sires, Rodeo Max and Clear Point, both prior world champions. Clear Point won the largest tip-to-tip in his division and the greatest total horn. Rodeo Max won the largest tip-to-tip in his division.

Clear Point measured 86.5 inches, at under 42 months, and Rodeo Max won with an 85-inch measurement, at age 11.

Dickinson Cattle Co. is a family-owned ranching business that markets registered cattle, hosts ranch tours for the public and competes in national livestock contests.
