Let us start with the clarification that we want to discuss Brahman branding as in “marketing” and not “irons in the fire” kind of branding that involves cowboys and the smell of seared cattle hide. We do think it is an fascinating topic, and you may be interested to know that there is evidence of cattle-branding going back over 5000 years, but… You have wandered into the wrong blog! Please Google again for what you’re after.

We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics, and the constant improvement in the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. We’d like to introduce Juan Jose Guillen, in his own words:
“My name is Juan Jose Guillen. I was born on September 20, 1993 in Choluteca, Honduras. I am a quiet person who likes to be sociable and friendly with people. I have two younger brothers. My parents are from Honduras, where my father is a farmer and my mother is a dentist, but currently she is the mayor of my town. My family is very involved in agriculture. Since I was a kid, my dad taught me everything about the field. I have grown up in the field and it is there that my passion for agriculture began. My father has been working with livestock for many years.. That is probably the reason why I am interested in working in the same field. Because of my interest in continuing to learn about agriculture, I applied to an agricultural university in Honduras. Currently, I am a senior majoring in Agricultural Engineering. My university supports learning by doing, so I work in different areas such as agriculture and livestock, as well as industrial meat processing plants and industrial dairy products. I have no problem with working in agriculture or in an environment related to animals because I grew up in a field environment. I quite like the fieldwork and livestock management. I am currently doing my internship in the United States. I decided on the United States because it has great advancements in genetics as well as cattle reproduction. Thanks to Moreno Ranches, doors have been opened for me to learn more about breeding beef cattle. They have taught me about different methods of breeding and how to use Cattlemax, a cattle management software. Well, this is a great experience that will help me in the future because the cattle sector is developing worldwide.
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics, and the constant improvement in the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. We’d like to introduce Carlos Andres Garnica Vargas, in his own words:
“My name is Carlos Andres Garnica Varga. I am twenty-one years old. I was born in Los Amates Izabal, Guatemala on June 10, 1994. In addition to my parents, I have two younger brothers. I lived in Los Amates Izabal until I was two years old and then my parents moved to Guatemala City. I was raised in the city, but spent a lot of time in the country fields of Izabal, too. My dad’s business has always been the land–for forestry, agriculture, and beef cattle breeding. As a child, I spent most Mondays to Fridays in the city, but on many weekends and most of my vacations my dad took our family to the ranch to work with cattle and to work in the cyclical business of cutting the trees and then selling the wood and then reforesting.
I like to practice sports such as boxing, riding mountain bike, wakeboarding, and playing water polo; but my biggest passion in life is the same as my dad and grandfather: harvesting the land and creating the highest crop production possible. I also like working with livestock. I went to school in the city from kindergarten until I was fifteen years old. Then I started studying agriculture and animal sciences at the National Central Agricultural School (ENCA, in Spanish), located about eleven miles from Guatemala City, to get my Agronomist degree at medium level. After I graduated as an agronomist at ENCA, I continued my college education at the Panamerican Agricultural University, Zamorano, located at Honduras. It’s a four-year program that includes a learning-by-doing component, which ENCA also had. The program consists of a series of working modules that all students must complete and demonstrate competency. I’m actually in my fourth year of the program and I’m doing my internship in the United States of America, with one of the world’s top American Brahman Cattle Breeders, Moreno Ranches, Inc., in Florida. I’m very glad that the Ranch extended this magnificent opportunity to me to learn more about Brahman cattle breeding, and I’m sure that it’s going to be an experience that will expand my knowledge and help me to have my own cattle ranch in my native country in the near future.

Everyone has a smartphone these days; therefore, everyone has a camera. So given the ease of shooting, people take pictures of the darndest things. Like their lunch. That’s just strange. And themselves, which is more understandable, but selfies are an epidemic! You know your kids are doing it; it’s got to stop. Here’s a thought. Give your kid something actually very photogenic to share on Instagram and Facebook: a lovely Brahman heifer. And since Amazon does not yet have them “in stock” (pardon the pun), consider getting that heifer from Moreno Ranches, as we also have all types of Brahman cattle for sale, including online during this “12 days” sales event.
These not only look good, they are guaranteed to come of good stock. All the our Brahman cattle for sale at Moreno Ranches are backed by the the M-check verification program, a DNA-based stamp that confirms the cattle’s registration and parentage so you can rely on the blood-line we detail in the catalog.

Type a few keywords into some search engine’s entry box (not naming names, but it starts with ‘G’ and rhymes with ‘bugle’), click, click, click, and soon you’re on your way to find nearly anything.

These days “buying local” is all the rage, and while this might make sense if you are popping down to the farmer’s market for some eggs, organic honey or fresh produce, it might not be the way to go with your cattle.
In this country it is not considered a virtue to hide your light under a bushel: Be the Best, Number One, Top of the Heap.

Moreno Ranches, a top producer of American Red Brahman & Gray Brahman cattle for sale, is proud to announce that an upcoming series of informational blog posts will cover the topic of American Red & Gray Brahman cattle, laying out the reasons that progressive ranchers and breeders have come to prefer the American breeds, both in the country and for export.
The team at Moreno Ranches has a long-standing commitment to using innovative modern breeding techniques to produce the highest-quality purebred Brahman cattle pedigrees. We understand that the value of our Brahman cattle comes from careful attention to the purebred genetics. Because of this you can count on the performance, fertility and superior beef production when cross-breeding with our cattle to produce Brahman F1 offspring in your own hybrid breeding program. Why Select Moreno Ranch Cattle for Your Brahman F1 Hybrid Breeding?Cross-breeding with Moreno Ranches Brahman cattle consistently yields superior F-1 offspring. The reason is that our cattle have a purebred pedigree, which translates to reliable performance. Historically, the breed developed under conditions of inadequate food supplies, presence of insects, pests, parasites, diseases, and a harsh tropical climate. This caused the ancestors of Brahman cattle to develop with remarkable adaptations for survival. These genetics, further developed in the United States, give the Brahman breed a distinct reputation for remarkable adaptations. The result is that Brahman F1 cattle have proven they will excel in terms of performance and milk production in harsh and challenging conditions.

Cattle producers have a lot of choices these days, when they choose which cattle to buy. There are many breeds, like Angus, that originated in Europe and are known as “beef cattle.” But the Brahman breed brings both high feed efficiency and heat resistance to the equation, plus they tend to be more docile than Angus.
If you have never raised Brahman cattle before, let’s take a moment and discuss feed efficiency and feed conversion as compared to all other beef breeds. The Brahman F-1 female is the reigning “Queen” by cattlemen for numerous reasons. The Moreno Ranches females have a purebred pedigree which ensures environmental adaptability, superior milk production volume, higher fertility and the heat and disease resistance of her Brahman parent. She will wean a calf with more weight per day of age than her straight-bred contemporaries. And she will live longer, producing more pounds of calf over her lifetime than others.
The use and influence of Moreno Ranches purebred Brahman bulls have proven to be very successful around the United States and in Central America. The results have and continue to be very positive for their quality and performance minded cattleman.
Feed Efficiency of our Brahman Cattle
If feed efficiency and feed conversion is important to you––and it should be––then have a look at Moreno Ranches Brahman cattle, and you will find they compare favorably to other breeds. Cattle that eat less to reach sale weight save money. If you are interested in learning more about Brahman cattle, one of the best things to do is to call us for a Brahman ranch tour. For anyone new to the industry (including Juniors or even overseas breeders), that’s a great way to see with your own eyes the beauty and efficiency of the Brahman cattle breed.
