Why Select Moreno Ranch Cattle for Your Brahman F1 Hybrid Breeding?

Red Brahman x Red Angus

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.

Red and Grey Brahman Cattle

Top Feed Efficiency of Our Brahman Cattle Means More Weight with Less Feed

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.

Feed Efficiency Trait Leader

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.

Brahman Heifers Have Many Advantages as Breeding Stock

Maternal cattle selection is the major focus point for us as producers of replacement females. We are a major supplier of Brahman heifers, with our females exhibiting superior maternal ability and to have a cow herd that will produce calves that will be adequate and performance oriented.

Brahman Heifers Well-known for Maternal Ability

Brahman heifers are known for their maternal ability, including their ability for producing calves with low birth weights and competitive average daily gain. Produced from genetically superior Brahmans, Brahman F1 heifers, therefore, combine the genetically desirable traits of both

parents. The Brahman F1 female is highly regarded by commercial cattlemen as a maternal machine with few peers. She has bred-in environment adaptability, increased milk production, 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 life-time than others.

Docility and Brahman Cattle: Breeding ‘Quiet’ Brahman Cattle for Sale – Some Thoughts

Genetics and the science of breeding have fascinated human beings for a long time. The first “caveman” who domesticated a dog, probably chose that dog from among the wolves, choosing an animal that had a “new gene” for docility. Everyone knows that the relationship between dog and man has been one of the most successful in evolution. Similarly too is the relationship between humans and cattle: breeds are bred for their characteristics. Brahman Cattle, for example, are well-known for their heat-resistance and their ability to be cross-bred to make F1s with many great characteristics for beef. We at Moreno Ranches are passionate about superior genetics. One of our proven herd sires here at Moreno Ranches,  +Mr. 3X He’s Got The Look 40/2, was recently ranked among the top 20 in the Brahman breed for docility.

Brahman Cattle and Breeding in ‘Quiet’ Docility

One of the newer ideas in cattle breeding is docility. Breeding Brahman cattle as it were, not just for their heat resistance or superior beef qualities, but for their personalities. It is well-known that the breed is already one of the more gentle.  There are many, many photos of children next to the cattle, something that one might not see with the Angus breed, for example.  A November, 2010, study by the American Angus Assocation, for example, goes very in-depth to measure the docility of cattle, with a six-point scoring system.  “1” being the most docile, and “6” being the most aggressive.  According to the study –

Cattle behavior has been documented to influence economically important traits. Researchers at Colorado State University (CSU) have studied cattle temperament as related to beef cattle production systems, handling facilities and carcass end product. Data from the Iowa Tri-County Steer Carcass Brahman Docility - Quiet Brahman Cattle for SaleFuturity (TCSCF) reflects a difference of $62.19 per head in net dollars returned between the most docile category vs. the most aggressive category of cattle evaluated. Quality grade was also greatly enhanced in the more docile cattle, with double the percentage of carcasses grading USDA Prime and premium Choice.

Moreno Ranches: Superior Genetics & Brahman Docility

In the recent ABBA trait leader report, one of our senior herd sires ranked among the top twenty in the breed for docility: +MR 3X. (Read it here). Here’s a little about him. Mr 3X He’s Got The Look 40/2 is the past ’95 National Champion bull that won every show he was ever shown in. 40/2 is a legendary bull that has produced so many great ones over the years. Many of the distinguished Brahman breeders would say he is one of the most influential bulls from the 1990’s. Currently one of his sons, LB Mr Derringer Manso 953/3, is being used in Locke Brother Red Brahman program and is widely influencing the breed in Australia as well.

Breeding Docile, Quiet Brahman Cattle

What this might mean for the Brahman Cattle industry is that we have a ‘natural advantage’ in breeding Brahman cattle for docility.  Breeding ‘Quiet Brahman Cattle’ might seem a bit touchy-feely, but the economics of the attribute speak for themselves. What do you think?
