locator up Our Brahman Cattle
A Visionary Program

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.

Maternal cattle selection is the major focus point for us as producers of replacement females. In our females, we strive to have superior maternal ability and to have a cow herd that will produce calves that will be adequate and performance oriented.

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. Brahman females are known for their maternal ability, including their ability for producing calves with low birth weights and competitive average daily gain.

The productivity and adaptability of Brahman cattle will ensure a place for them in the beef industry for years to come, in both purebred and commercial markets.

Many commercial breeders never reap the benefits that solid purebred genetics can offer to their operation. Utilizing ordinary crossbreeding programs eliminates hybrid vigor and diversification, and lowers performance, development, and carcass cutability, all of which are vital to compete in a changing market. The purebred genetics program at Moreno Ranches allows progressive breeders and ranchers to tap in to what proven genetics have to offer in terms of performance and profit.

The red Brahman herd is now a strong component of our program.
Here at Moreno Ranches, we understand the value of purebred Brahman genetics. We emphasize performance, soundness, fertility and beef production in our Brahman herds. With both gray and red cattle available, Moreno Ranches is in the position to fill your needs.

We realize that no cattle breed is perfect, and we take responsibility within our herds to select for superior cattle. We keep structure, eye appeal and disposition in mind in our decision making process to ensure your needs are met.

Our cattle are designed to fit programs as diverse as the adaptability of the breed itself, from purebred markets to commercial producers interested in utilizing Brahman hybrid vigor.
Proven practices, integrity and customer service continue to serve as reasons why our customers choose Moreno Ranches.
