The team at Moreno Ranches has a long-standing commitment to using innovative modern breeding techniques to produce the highest-quality purebred Brahman cattle pedigrees. We understand that the value of our Brahman cattle comes from careful attention to the purebred genetics. Because of this you can count on the performance, fertility and superior beef production when cross-breeding with our cattle to produce Brahman F1 offspring in your own hybrid breeding program. Why Select Moreno Ranch Cattle for Your Brahman F1 Hybrid Breeding?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.

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.
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.

Performance That Holds Up to a Challenge
The Brahman cross F-1 cattle are adaptable, and can thrive in less-than-ideal conditions. Performance metrics such as weight gain and milk production are less impacted than for other breeds even in challenging conditions. Other beneficial factors include superior feeding efficiency, heat, insect and parasite tolerance, and longevity. Many of the Southern states like Florida, Texas or Louisiana prefer the Brahman breed for Brahman F1 Hybrids due to these

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.
Brahman Heifers Enhance Your F1 Hybrid Breeding Program
Moreno Ranches has secured the foundation of their long running and very established registered Brahman herd with only the finest in quality and tops in terms of performance. The “M check” branded Brahman heifers are known for their femininity, fertility and strength in cow families. The resources spent to blend only the finest genetics to create some of the most predictable cow families is always the goal. The more predictable the product, the higher dividends and value for their customers.

As a leading embryo transplant operation, Moreno Ranches routinely DNA tests upcoming donors in preparation for their future ET calves. In one of our recent groups of samples sent in to be DNA typed, we received some quite surprising news on our very own Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112. While we had believed her sire to be #CIGSA Mr. 162/0, it turns out that Reba’s sire is actually the famed SRS Mr. Troubador 933.
Although we were surprised by this finding, we could not be more excited for Reba to carry on the impressive lineage of SRS Mr. Troubador 933. We have had tremendous success using Troubador in our A.I. and embryo transplant programs, and Reba is yet another example of his profound impact within the Brahman breed. Their accomplishments share many parallels, as both Reba and Troubador have been honored as National Grand Champions, International Reserve Grand Champions, and ABBA Show Cow/Bull of the Year.
Moreno Ranches is beyond blessed to have a female of the caliber of Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112 carrying the M check brand. After recently producing her first natural calf, we cannot wait for Reba to enter embryo production in the coming months. With a genetic foundation that includes SRS Mr. Troubador 933, one of the breed’s most accomplished red Brahman sires, we know that the potential of Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112’s future offspring is truly limitless.
