We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics and the constant improvement of the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. As such, we’d like to introduce one of our new interns, José Barrera:
José Javier Barrera was born in the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala located in the northwestern region of the country and bordering on the north and west with Mexico. It is rich in customs, traditions, and has incredible landscapes. His father and grandfather instilled in him an undeniable love and passion for cattle and for managing cattle breeding and crosses of Nelore and Brahman cattle. As he developed, José acquired skills to manage livestock in different situations through fast and efficient problem solving.
One of the main reasons José decided to go to Zamorano, in addition to it being one of the most prestigious universities known for its excellence in agronomy, was the opportunity to help his family by continuing to develop his knowledge and skills, and applying what he learned. In the future, he hopes to use his skills to optimize resources and to obtain better results through improved management. Since childhood, his dream has always been to study agronomy and a close friend informed him of Zamorano and the quality education the university provides. He has represented the university on several occasions, such as in the National Downhill Championship of Honduras, where he was honored as national champion in his category in 2017.
For José, it is an honor to be part of the international internship program at Moreno Ranches. He believes the internship will meet all his expectations for learning more about livestock production using technology. He promises to take advantage of his stay at Moreno Ranches and is very excited about how much he will learn during this time.
Personal Mission Statement
My mission is to take advantage of every learning opportunity during the internship, putting in a positive attitude so that I may have better job opportunities and be able to apply all knowledge acquired to future job opportunities.
- Learn about the characteristics and symptoms of a cow in heat and be able to detect at least 25 cows in heat through visual characteristics only
- Attend a dystocic birth in order to save at least 3 calves
- Acquire knowledge about the different ways to apply a medication in different form to at least 3 cattle: 3 intramuscular, 3 intravenous and 3 subcutaneous
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics and the constant improvement of the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. As such, we’d like to introduce one of our new interns, Alejandro Bonilla:
Juvenal “Alejandro” Bonilla was born in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, which is located in the eastern part of the country. His love for agronomy began with his father, who studied agronomy as well. His father encouraged him to participate in different activities in the field, such as technical tours, fairs, and field days.
His love for beef cattle began at a young age, largely because the department in which he lives is one of the largest producers of beef in the country. It was for this reason that he decided to study agronomy at Zamorano University. Alejandro is a student who has also excelled in sports, and enjoyed practicing soccer and swimming. He decided to learn boxing, and after two years, he became a national champion in boxing.
Alejandro wants to prepare for a career that will help him grow professionally while acquiring skills in new technologies, and at the same time he wants to be able to help his family.
He chose an internship at Moreno Ranches because it offered opportunities to learn a wide variety of new techniques and opportunities to learn the implementation of new technologies. He believes that the Moreno Ranches’ internship will expand his knowledge of Brahman cattle reproduction, cattle handling techniques, and selection of seed stock Brahman cattle—and give him further opportunity to apply what he has learned in college. He said he is ready to take on the challenge.
Personal Mission Statement
Try to learn as much as possible during the Internship and focus on the different protocols in animal reproduction, calves taming, embryo transfer processes, and the diverse techniques to detect cattle pregnancy.
- Identify which of the two Moreno Ranches (Florida or Texas) got a better gain weight and the reasons that might explain this difference
- Learn to identify the calf parameters needed to participate in cattle shows
- Help at least in three dystocic births during the internship
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics and the constant improvement of the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. As such, we’d like to introduce one of our new interns, José Bolaños:
José Eduardo Bolaños Wong was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala. The country is known as the eternal spring because its climate conditions allow flowers to bloom all year round.
His father comes from a long line of agronomers, while his mother comes from a Chinese-Guatemalan household. He has had an affinity for agronomy since childhood, and this interest pushed him to enroll in the University of Zamorano. He would make trips back and forth to his family’s farm where they grew crops intended for sale in greenhouses. In high school Jose was known for being active all the time and was involved in many extracurricular activities, such as motocross, orchestra, equestrian show jumping and aviation, earning his aeronautical license. He was often described as full of life, energetic and ready to take on any task at hand.
When it came time to choose a university, he was worried about being stuck in a classroom all day listening to lectures about agriculture, but not being involved with the real-world experiences. Then he discovered that at the University of Zamorano, students attend lectures for half of the day and work in the field for the other half. The decision to attend this university was a no brainer. In the University he was also involved with many extracurricular activities including the equestrian club, the soils club and the band.
His love for Brahman cattle developed when he became more involved with cattle management. He was mesmerized by their size and strength and the fact that they were quite docile. This breed is very popular in Guatemala for their adaptability to the extreme tropical climate, the heat, as well as their fertility. He decided to pursue his love for the breed by attending the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo two years in a row, traveling all the way from Central America to attend.
At the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, he met Kelvin Moreno and learned more about Moreno Ranches. He was immediately hooked on red Brahman and decided that he wanted to own the breed and make a living out of it. He then decided to learn from one of the leading red Brahman producer with 5-year consecutive winners among the top red Brahman breeders. He is beyond excited to start this new journey and feels blessed having been given the chance to learn as much as he can about the breed.
Personal Mission Statement
At the end of the internship, I will have the confidence to establish my own ranch and become a major seed stock producer in Central America.
- Learn all the processes of insemination
- Be able to exhibit showmanship in a show
- By the end of the Internship, have sold some straws (semen sale)
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics and the constant improvement of the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. As such, we’d like to introduce one of our new interns, Erick Quevedo:
Erick Quevedo was born in LaGomera, Escuintla, a state located on the south coast of Guatemala. Its coast is bathed by the Pacific Ocean and holds the majority of the country’s tourist attractions. It is a privileged area because it has a climate suitable for tropical crop development and raising cattle.
Erick is the older of two brothers. He describes himself as having a high level of confidence in what he wants in the future. Since childhood, he has been attracted to agriculture and cattle management. Erick has experience in fruit and cattle export, having lived in LaGomera.
He completed his academic studies in that state up to the ninth grade. He was heavily influenced by the agricultural environment of the region and the focus given by his parents on the commercialization of agricultural inputs and veterinary products.
Erick decided to enroll at the Zamorano University after having a secondary education with emphasis in agriculture and livestock. As his college life went on, he formed a desire for further learning and a dedication to a higher level of cattle production. This is why he decided to apply to the Moreno Ranches internship—to better understand the reproductive process, as it is not similar to what he has seen back home.
When Erick first learned about Moreno Ranches, he had no doubt that this was the ideal place for him because it let him learn hands-on in the field and put into practice the knowledge acquired at Zamorano. Now that he has arrived at Moreno Ranches, he truly believes it is the ideal place to further his knowledge of cattle management. Being part of this elite, worldwide company will continue to foster his desire to excel.
Personal Mission Statement
I would like to establish a cattle farm and manage it with the efficient use of raw material, time, and environmentally friendly and economically sustainable technology and procedures. Certification will be included and will be the basis of management.
- Evaluate all the parameters of nutrition to increase the rate of pregnancy in the process of embryo transfer in Brahman cattle.
- Have a rate of 60% or more in pregnancy using artificial insemination in less than two minutes.
- Attend five or more dystocic births and have less than 20% of mortality.
Brahman cattle are known as one of the superior breeds in the cattle industry thanks to the many attributes and qualities they have shown through history. Their great ability of adaptation and many other advantages allow Brahman cattle to be so successful in tropical and sub-tropical climates. Brahman cattle were originally brought from India and are intermediate to large in size among beef breeds found in the United States. Bulls will generally weigh from 1600 to 2200 pounds and cows from 1000 to 1400 pounds in average condition.Read More›

There is a catchy phrase that architects use: form follows function. Lovely alliteration there (try saying it five times fast though). The idea is pretty simple, the shape and layout of something that gets built has to match the purpose for which it was constructed. The closer the two are aligned, the better the result. But Brahman show cattle are not buildings, so why bring this up?Read More›

We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics, and the constant improvement in the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. We’d like to introduce Juan Jose Guillen, in his own words:
“My name is Juan Jose Guillen. I was born on September 20, 1993 in Choluteca, Honduras. I am a quiet person who likes to be sociable and friendly with people. I have two younger brothers. My parents are from Honduras, where my father is a farmer and my mother is a dentist, but currently she is the mayor of my town. My family is very involved in agriculture. Since I was a kid, my dad taught me everything about the field. I have grown up in the field and it is there that my passion for agriculture began. My father has been working with livestock for many years.. That is probably the reason why I am interested in working in the same field. Because of my interest in continuing to learn about agriculture, I applied to an agricultural university in Honduras. Currently, I am a senior majoring in Agricultural Engineering. My university supports learning by doing, so I work in different areas such as agriculture and livestock, as well as industrial meat processing plants and industrial dairy products. I have no problem with working in agriculture or in an environment related to animals because I grew up in a field environment. I quite like the fieldwork and livestock management. I am currently doing my internship in the United States. I decided on the United States because it has great advancements in genetics as well as cattle reproduction. Thanks to Moreno Ranches, doors have been opened for me to learn more about breeding beef cattle. They have taught me about different methods of breeding and how to use Cattlemax, a cattle management software. Well, this is a great experience that will help me in the future because the cattle sector is developing worldwide.
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics, and the constant improvement in the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. We’d like to introduce Carlos Andres Garnica Vargas, in his own words:
“My name is Carlos Andres Garnica Varga. I am twenty-one years old. I was born in Los Amates Izabal, Guatemala on June 10, 1994. In addition to my parents, I have two younger brothers. I lived in Los Amates Izabal until I was two years old and then my parents moved to Guatemala City. I was raised in the city, but spent a lot of time in the country fields of Izabal, too. My dad’s business has always been the land–for forestry, agriculture, and beef cattle breeding. As a child, I spent most Mondays to Fridays in the city, but on many weekends and most of my vacations my dad took our family to the ranch to work with cattle and to work in the cyclical business of cutting the trees and then selling the wood and then reforesting.
I like to practice sports such as boxing, riding mountain bike, wakeboarding, and playing water polo; but my biggest passion in life is the same as my dad and grandfather: harvesting the land and creating the highest crop production possible. I also like working with livestock. I went to school in the city from kindergarten until I was fifteen years old. Then I started studying agriculture and animal sciences at the National Central Agricultural School (ENCA, in Spanish), located about eleven miles from Guatemala City, to get my Agronomist degree at medium level. After I graduated as an agronomist at ENCA, I continued my college education at the Panamerican Agricultural University, Zamorano, located at Honduras. It’s a four-year program that includes a learning-by-doing component, which ENCA also had. The program consists of a series of working modules that all students must complete and demonstrate competency. I’m actually in my fourth year of the program and I’m doing my internship in the United States of America, with one of the world’s top American Brahman Cattle Breeders, Moreno Ranches, Inc., in Florida. I’m very glad that the Ranch extended this magnificent opportunity to me to learn more about Brahman cattle breeding, and I’m sure that it’s going to be an experience that will expand my knowledge and help me to have my own cattle ranch in my native country in the near future.

sales event, on March 3rd, 2016 in Houston, Texas. If you are interested, please contact us to request a catalog in order to have time to review the sale offerings.
Our Denim & Diamonds sales event will be our 2nd annual event of this theme.
We think of it as, “A little bit country, a little bit sparkly.” The denim of course is for the men, and (rather more expensive) diamonds for the women. This sale is happening in conjunction with the activities of the ABBA International Show and Sale, which draws people from all over the United States, not to mention the rest of the world. Since you will probably be there if you’re the kind of person who would be reading this blog, we absolutely insist that you stop by to say “hi.” This is a great social occasion, a chance to mingle and meet. No sales pressure!
All Types of Brahman Cattle Are Coming to Texas
Of course we will have assembled what we feel is a very interesting selection of females from the Moreno Ranches program, and will have these Brahman cattle for sale. In this sale offering you will find only the finest genetics ever created, which we back up with the M check brand. We look forward to your reviewing several of these genetic packages at the ABBA International Show. As always the team at Moreno Ranches takes great pride in the development and marketing of the American Brahman cattle. We welcome any and all inquiries. Unfortunately, Moreno Ranches cannot accept payment on our Brahman cattle for sale in the form of diamonds, so please bring the more traditional payment methods along in case you nab a heifer!

Interested parties can learn about Red and Gray Brahman heifers, bulls and other cattle that will be sold at the Houston, Texas event, as well as Brahman semen and Brahman embryo opportunities.

We’re excited! We have inaugurating a brand-new sales event, the “12 Days of Christmas” online sale. The event runs from Dec 13th to Dec 24th. The “12 days” are for previewing the heifers we have for sale, which culminates in an auction on the 24th, Christmas Eve.
Everyone has a smartphone these days; therefore, everyone has a camera. So given the ease of shooting, people take pictures of the darndest things. Like their lunch. That’s just strange. And themselves, which is more understandable, but selfies are an epidemic! You know your kids are doing it; it’s got to stop. Here’s a thought. Give your kid something actually very photogenic to share on Instagram and Facebook: a lovely Brahman heifer. And since Amazon does not yet have them “in stock” (pardon the pun), consider getting that heifer from Moreno Ranches, as we also have all types of Brahman cattle for sale, including online during this “12 days” sales event.
These not only look good, they are guaranteed to come of good stock. All the our Brahman cattle for sale at Moreno Ranches are backed by the the M-check verification program, a DNA-based stamp that confirms the cattle’s registration and parentage so you can rely on the blood-line we detail in the catalog.
