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.

A Global Breed

Why Brahman cattle?

Moreno Ranches, a leader in the Brahman seedstock business, continues to expand their global reach. Recently, Moreno Ranches, has had two shipments of live cattle shipped out of their Texas Division to Thailand.

American Brahman are cattle that dominate the beef production markets in many parts of the world. This is due to Brahman cattle having the ability to adapt to harsh and challenging environments – the green of the tropics are ingrained in the Brahman cow. She will not tire in adverse conditions and will resist to parasites and insects like no other cow in the world.
