The Brahman Cattle genetics that Moreno Ranches has is very high quality, and preferred by many people around the world.”
Centuries of exposure to inadequate food supplies, insect pests, parasites, diseases, and the harsh climate of tropical India 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 to the changing cattle industry. Southern states like Texas and Florida are particularly hospitable to the Brahman breed.
Maternal cattle selection is the major focus point for us as producers of replacement females. We are a major supplier of Brahman heifers for sale, 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 females are known for their maternal ability, including their ability for producing calves with low birth weights and competitive average daily gain.
Brahman cattle have a heightened tolerance for heat, due to their cooler body temperature, sweating ability and increased body surface area exposed to cooling. Their demonstrated ability to withstand hot and humid weather, resist insects, and produce satisfactory milk flow under adverse conditions are only a few of the advantages to the Brahman breed. Many of the Southern states like Florida, Texas or Louisiana prefer the Brahman breed for Brahman F1 Hybrids due to their heat and insect tolerance.
