The Benefits of Brahman Cattle: 5 Reasons Why You Should Own this Breed

Moreno Ranches is a top producer of Brahman cattle in Texas and Florida. We offer red and grey Brahman bulls and females that have a variety of benefits that make this breed stand out amongst others. The following information is sourced from the American Brahman Breeder Association.

SUPERIOR CROSSBREEDING 

Hybrid vigor is a genetics term that is achieved by crossing two different strains, breeds or species. The use of Brahman bulls with European or English bred cows is one of the most popular crossbreeding practices in the U.S., with the resulting Brahman F-1 calf in high demand by cattlemen. The Brahman F-1 cross is superior to other crosses in weight per day of age and carcass efficiency. They also have characteristics of the Brahman parent, which include heat tolerance, disease and parasite resistance and increased longevity.

MATERNAL BENEFITS 

F-1 Brahman females have increased milk production, higher fertility and wean faster-growing calves with fewer inputs. These females also have a longer productive life and raise more calves over their lifetime than other breeds.

ENVIRONMENTAL STRENGTHS  

Brahman cattle can have darker skin pigmentation and a thick, glossy hair coat, which helps filter the rays of the sun and withstand extreme temperatures. Brahman cattle also have the ability to utilize lower-quality feed and to resist insects and external parasites while withstanding vast climactic differences. Another special feature of the Brahman bred is their ability to sweat freely, which contributes to their great heat tolerance.

GAIN EFFICIENCY & CARCASS QUALITY

Brahman hybrid calves and Brahman F-1 cows are known for their fast gains. Calves produce more weight per day of age than most other breed contemporaries. The carcasses are also known for their high cutability, which results in high yielding carcass with limited fat.

MILK PRODUCTION

Many dairy producers in the southern U.S. and South and Central America utilize the American Brahman in crossbreeding with dairy breeds. Using American Brahman adds additional butter fat content and protein, as well as increased production and net income.

I see my position as Herdsman as an exceptional opportunity to maintain—and improve—the quality of our cattle and services. -Lyn Castaneda

August 14, 2019, Frost, TX – Moreno Ranches is proud to announce and welcome Lyn Castaneda as the Company’s Texas Division Herdsman.  Lyn will be responsible for show and sale cattle development, directing cattle nutrition, and contributing to herd wellness oversight, as well as general show barn management responsibilities.

Lyn is no stranger to the Mcheck team, as he joined the team as an intern three years ago and, as a junior, conducted our summer internship program. During that summer internship, he worked in the show barn in the Florida Division ranch, as well as in the Mcheck genetics center, assisting with donor management and other reproductive technologies.

Moreno Ranches Florida division is the largest operator of purebred seed stock Brahman cattle in the southeast, with an in-house lab and fully operational genetics center on site. It was there that Lyn served as an assistant herdsman over the sale and show cattle. During his successful tenure at Moreno Ranches Florida Division, he directed cattle inventory management systems and assisted with sales and business development efforts, including helping to host groups at the ranch during special visits or client tours.

Lyn also comes to Moreno Ranches with a strong work ethic and, most importantly, a desire to become part of the great Mcheck team.

Lyn also comes to Moreno Ranches with a strong work ethic and, most importantly, a desire to become part of the great Mcheck team. He plans to continue his education to further his skills in animal sciences.

Lyn stated, “I have loved working with cattle my whole life.  As I step in as the new Herdsman at Moreno Ranches, I reflect upon everyone who has had an impact in my life these past three years. It has been a privilege to work alongside many great people who have become like second family to me. They have guided me in seeing how to be the best of the best. I am honored and humbled to be representing Moreno Ranches and its legacy.   My passion for the cattle business runs deep and my goals are high for the future of Moreno Ranches.  I see my position as Herdsman as an exceptional opportunity to maintain—and improve—the quality of our cattle and services.  I also look forward to continuing to learn and be part of this great team and family tradition while working with current and future Mcheck customers.”

Kelvin Moreno, President and CEO of Moreno Ranches, stated, “We are very excited to welcome Lyn to our team as the Herdsman at Moreno Ranches Texas Division. Not only will Lyn bring a fresh focus on maintaining and developing customer relationships, including scheduling visits to our show/sales cattle barns, but he will also be a great role model for our youth who come into contact with him.”
