The May and June issues of Trails Magazine will be combined again this year. It will feature Sales Results for the spring sales through the end of April as well as feature information about Brood Cows. The deadline for this issue will be April 15th to reserve your advertising space and to get  Affiliate News or News on the Trail articles in.
Why is this a good issue to get your ranch's program in?
  • Thank your buyers - you can reserve space and once your consigned animals have sold give us the information for your ad. Reserving that space is the key.
  • Highlight your females - show off those productive females and their progeny you want to sale.
  • Congratulate and wish luck to your world show participants - this issue will be in people's hand before World Show in June and copies will be available at the show.
Have you tried a product lately that you just love? Is there equipment that makes your work easier or safer? New feed, equipment to help you work your cattle, fencing solutions - we'd love to hear about it. We would like to start featuring some products that breeders want to know about and encourage manufacturers and distributors of the products you want and need to advertise in the Trails so everyone can see what Longhorn breeders are using in their day-to-day operations. If we get enough input we can highlight an item or two each month to let those new to Longhorns know what really works. Email any comments you may have regarding your successes with products to
In addition to a new look and new content, Trails has revamped our ad pricing and options for breeders.
New pricing, new frequency discounts and new web/print combos are available now.
Contact Lindsay Maher today to see how affordable it is to promote your program today! or (817) 625-6241.
