Polled Brahman Cattle for Sale at Moreno Ranches
Here at Moreno Ranches, we understand the value of purebred Brahman genetics. We realize that people often choose the Brahman breed, or Brahman hybrids, for many characteristics, among them heat resistance, superior beef ability, and docility. A new trend has been emerging in recent years: an emphasis on “polled” cattle. “Polled,” of course, refers to cattle that are naturally without horns.
The absence of horns, combined with the well-known characteristics of docility, superior beef ability, insect-resistance… these really make what could be truly the “perfect” cattle for Southern climates. In fact, ranchers from Texas, Florida, and other Southern States have been “polled” and the love our “polled” Brahman cattle!
Most of our Brahman cattle sales are through our semi-annual sales at the ranch in April and September each year. We also conduct private treaty sales of Brahman cattle, including polled Brahman cattle, on a first come, first served basis. Our stock sells and changes frequently, so don’t hesitate to contact us directly to visit our Florida ranch, or to discuss your Brahman cattle needs.
Why Polled Brahman Cattle?
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 cattle in order to breed for Brahman F1 Hybrids due to their heat and insect tolerance. The fact that polled Brahman genetics are available just makes the best, better!
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. A renewed focus on breeding polled cattle will just make the best, better.
As one of Texas’s and Florida’s top Brahman breeders of polled Brahman cattle, both red and gray Brahmans, the purebred Brahman genetics program at Moreno Ranches allows progressive breeders and ranchers to tap into what proven genetics have to offer in terms of performance and profit.
