We use our blog here at Moreno Ranches to inform the community about what’s going on, in and around Moreno Ranches and of course the Brahman Cattle industry. So when this news came across the desk, we were justifiably proud. Here’s an excerpt –
Kelvin Moreno of Dade County Farm Bureau was named the winner of Florida Farm Bureau’s Excellence in Agriculture competition. This competition is open to farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35 who do not derive the majority of their income from an owned farm operation.
The winner was announced during the President’s Awards Banquet at Florida Farm Bureau’s 2014 Annual Meeting in Ponte Vedra Beach on Oct. 29. Finalists in the competition also included Tamara Wood of Pasco County and Kevin Wright of Suwannee County.
Contestants were judged on the basis of their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability, participation in Farm Bureau and community service. In addition to other prizes, Moreno received an expense-paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in San Diego Jan. 11-14, where he will compete in the national awards program.

We at Moreno Ranches pride ourselves on innovation. We work hard to be the best breeders of Brahman cattle for sale, not only in Florida, not only in Texas, but in the whole United States. Moreover, while we live and breathe “ag,” we realize that (contrary to popular opinion, “ag” is very high tech). Our superior genetics and top-ranked Brahman heifers and Brahman bulls prove that fact: superior genetics is a way of life, here at Moreno Ranches.
Our First-Ever Cyber Monday Sale on Brahman Cattle & Related Products
In that spirit, we are doing something very techie and very innovative in the Brahman cattle industry: announcing our first-ever “Cyber Monday” sale. Cyber Monday, in case you didn’t know, is the first Monday after Thanksgiving, a day devoted to online commerce. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005, in a Shop.org press release entitled “‘Cyber Monday Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”. In 2013, Cyber Monday online sales grew by 20.6% over the previous year, hitting a record $2.29 billion. (Source: Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyber_Monday). In that spirit, we want to combine our superior genetics commitment with some good old-fashioned Cyber Monday promotion.

It was a great honor for the Moreno Family to present the American Junior Brahman Association a check from the proceeds of their highly successful Summer Classic Sale. The Moreno Family firmly believes that the future success of the Brahman Breed is only as good as the people that are in it. They believe that their success depends on the success of their solid base of customers and
