Crossbreeding with a Purpose

At Moreno Ranches, we know that successful crossbreeding must be well planned and purpose-driven.

We run a cow-calf operation on a two-breed rotational program that focuses on the benefits of the high-growth, highly efficient Limousin breed and the adaptive, maternal Brahman breed.

We capitalize on heterosis, or hybrid vigor, by combining the positive traits of two very different breeds in our crossbreeding system. The combination of Limousin and Brahman is no doubt ideal for the southern parts of the U.S., as well as other areas with a similar climate, where heat tolerance and insect resistance is a must.

Moreno Ranches has females divided into two groups. We use purebred Brahman bulls on our mature, Continental-based cow herd to retain replacement heifers. We also use purebred homo-black and homo-polled Limousin and Lim-Flex bulls on our commercial herd.

In addition to superior breed characteristics and ability for hybrid vigor, our commercial cattle herds are built upon the foundation of the superior genetics at Moreno Ranches.
