22 lots of elite Brahman heifers and bulls – 20 heifers averaged $14,038 and 2 bulls averaged $10,000. These Brahman calves sold to buyers in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Mexico.
At Moreno Ranches, we are so excited about the future and what it has in store for our great genetic partners and the beef industry. One of the sale highlights was Lot 15, a Rufus daughter, that sold for $42,500 and will become a leading donor for one of our great partners in Mexico.
Mr. Fontenot 333, who the industry knows as “Rufus,” has revolutionized the red Brahman breed. Not only was he a many time show winner, including being named the 2016 International Champion, but offers a lot of value to Brahman breeders. He is an extremely sound structured sire that has an ideal look and adds growth, bone and muscle to his offspring. Rufus has produced numerous show ring winners for us over the past year, including the Champion Bull at the Florida Junior Brahman Show, and high sellers, including the high selling lot in our All American Sale. In addition to his ideal build, he offers an outcross pedigree to many of today’s bloodlines and ranks in the top of the breed for growth and milk, only further adding to his value as an impact sire. As a result of his superiority and demand by breeders domestically and internationally, “Rufus” was the #1 Red Bull for Registrations in the ABBA over the past year. As you can tell from our show string and sale offerings, we believe in “Rufus” and know that he will continue to play a significant role in our program for years to come.

There’s lot that Texans have to be proud of, as they are the largest state (sorry Alaska, a deep-frozen territory with no cattle is just not on my radar), and can claim all sorts of biggest-of and best-of crowns. And they are justly proud of their long heritage of cattle husbandry, from the old days of free-range drives of long-horns up to the present-day scientifically managed ranch operations.
Moreno Ranches has plenty of Brahman cattle for sale, which would behoove you to consider purchasing, as their heat-tolerance would serve you well in a warming climate. That business with the world warming has been the subject of a lot of controversy and argumentation, but is best considered by breaking it down into two questions. First the easy question: Is it getting warmer? It is really no secret that the climate is getting warmer.

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.
