4 Bar S Shorthorns started out as a family 4-H project for Dale, Patti, Kelley, and Lindsey Sommerlatte.  4 Bar S Shorthorns is operated on land that has been in the Sommerlatte family since 1860 as well as land from the Brandt family located in Buckhorn.  Kelley and Lindsey showed successfully around the state earning numerous championships as well as TCCA Top 10 spots.  After both daughters graduated, Dale and Patti continued raising shorthorns and showing throughout the country.  Their focus became raising show cattle that could perform in the ring and the pasture.  

The future of 4 Bar S looks bright.  We are constantly improving our bloodlines and cattle.  Our exhibitors are expanding and we are excited about our future showmen, Ella, Heath, and Holden.  Checking cows and working with them are a family hobby.  Please stop by for a visit!
