English Longhorn (also known as Longhorn, Dishley,rnLancashire, Leicestershire, and Warwickshire ) cattle are raised for meat, milkrnand used to be employed as a draught animal. As the name suggests, the breedrnhas long horn and originated from Craven, in the north of England. They were firstrnbreed and later improved by Robert Bakewell of Leicestershire, England in the mid-1700s.rnBakewell pioneered the use of inbreeding technique in cattle selection. And hernselected the English Longhorn cattle breed for quick growth and heavyrnhindquarters of these animals. Selection efforts of Bakewell led the breed tornbecome the most widely used animals throughout England and Ireland until it wasrnsurpasses by the Shorthorn cattle in the early 1800s.

And thernefforts of RBST resulted in 255 registered animals in 1980. Currently thernEnglish Longhorn cattle are available in United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland andrnNew Zealand.
