How do I mount a skull mount for a long horn?

How do I do a skull mount on a longhorn steer and how do I keep the horns on? Any help would be appreciated.

You have to mascerate the skull just like on deer with one SMALL difference. The cases have to be removed from the cores of the horns. Once they rot free, saw the cores off to about 4 or 6 inches and rot the skull out like the deer. When it's all done and the skull has been bleached, epoxy the cases back on the core stubs.
