Brahman (Zebu) Cattle

Description: "The development of numerous herds of Brahman cattle in sections of the Gulf coast, particularly in Texas, has attracted much interest to these animals. While they lack many of the desirable characteristics found in the beef breeds commonly raised in the United states, Brahman cattle appear to have other qualities which make them worthy of consideration for certain regions. They are especially adaptable for portions of the country having a hot climate, droughts, and where cattle pests are troublesome. Brahmans have been raised under conditions which have given them unusual resistance against such adverse surroundings. They are worthy of study and consideration, both from the standpoint of a distinct breed and as a factor in general cattle-breeding operations." -- p. 1
