Welcome to the RM! We have faced many challenges since we started in the Longhorn business in 1978. We learned the highs and lows of floods and droughts and the peaks and valleys that the cattle market historically faces. The year 2011 tested us as never before with a record drought in all of Texas, much of Oklahoma and parts of Louisiana which impacted many Texas Longhorn breeders and a large percentage of the breed's cattle. Many cattle had to be sold or relocated due to lack of pasture, depleted water supplies or the high cost and lack of availability of hay. Coupled with the challenges of nature was a struggling economy that effected all of us. For many of us the new year brought encouragement as rains had returned starting in mid November and by the first of January many of us had moisture in the ground that they hadn't seen since September 2010. As this is being written much of Texas is wet and expecting another round of thunderstorms in the next two days. Ponds are once again holding water and creeks are flowing again. Our cattle have been chasing green for the last month and are starting to mend from the tough times.
Many of us may wonder “what lies ahead”? As a breed we have much for which to be thankful. The drought forced most of us to cull our herds much deeper than we would have liked. Short-term this was a painful process but long-term this gave us drastic improvement of our herds from top to bottom and put us several years ahead of the pace of improvement of our cattle had this not been forced on us. Many of us are lightly stocked and with the good rains will have abundant grass this spring. Our biggest challenge now becomes our market. Obviously there would be a market decline when the economy takes a downturn and when severe drought effects a large percentage of our breeders. Hopefully as we recover we can once again concentrate on spreading the word about our wonderful cattle and attracting new breeders. Our cattle are a natural choice for many people when stocking their farm or ranch and as things get back to normal people need to be told about how great this breed is and how much fun these cattle have to offer. We encourage all breeders to take an active roll in this business either through their local affiliate, one of the registries or at TLMA.
We would like to thank all who attend our sale with a special thank you to our consignors. These fine folks have sent us some exceptional cattle and we appreciate their continued support of our sale. We have held our numbers down over past sales mainly due to the effects of the drought. A close inspection of the cattle reveals an outstanding set of mainly young cattle as well as some very big horned cows and some heifers out of elite cows. Whether you are building a herd or need to add something special to the top of your herd there are cattle in this sale that will meet your needs. We continue to raise our standards in the Babydoll Heifer Sale and this year we required at least a 50" TTT measurement at 24 months of age. We also added a new class to the heifer sale, that being heifers of any age out of over 70" cows. We are pleased to have several of these in the sale and their dam's are on display. We consider this offering to be an exceptional buying opportunity for all of us. For the first time we are offering "one breeding" to two of our best and most beautiful cows. Lots 45 and 46 deserve your attention. We also are offering two daughters of the late Buzz Saw. We only had one calf crop out of him and these are two very fancy heifers.
We hope you will find something to add to your program. We want to extend a special invitation to everyone to attend the Red McCombs Party after the heifer sale. We have kicked it up a notch and will be having steak night at this year's party and we know you will enjoy the performance by the Grammy Winning Bobby Flores. Red & Charline McCombs

Touchdown of RM has been the heart of our breeding program since he was a yearling. He is a fabulous bull that has produced an 80" daughter and numerous fancy over 70" cows that have sold in the $20's. His son RM Heavy Touch will follow in his footsteps.
Owned with John & Ursula Allen
RM Heavy Touch is one of the most beautiful bulls we have ever raised. His pedigree is stacked with great bulls such as Touchdown of RM, Super Bowl, VJ Tommie, Heavy Hitter (83"), G-Man and Mr. Measles as well as elite cows such as Uncurled, Inez of Acampo, Measles and the twist horned Yates Cactus Flower (granddam of our over 80" Awesome Yates cow). The Allen's have some exceptional daughters from this bull, many are lacey faced. Our first calves are hitting the ground now and a few of the sale lots feature his service. We think this bull can make a real impact. PAGE 4
