Brangus Cattle


Other name(s):
 Red Brangus Cattle

Scientific name: Bos taurus x Bos indicus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: Brangus Cattle are a crossbreed developed in the United States in the 1930's from purebred Angus and Brahman cattle. The Brangus was created to take advantage of the strengths of both the Angus and Brahman. Today's Brangus have been stabilized at 3/8 Brahman and 5/8 Angus, are polled (without horns), and must be either solid black or red.

According to the International Red Brangus Breeders Association (IRBBA), "Red Brangus Cattle have genetics that are ideal for tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. Red Brangus Cattle combine the hardiness, disease resistance and unmatched maternal instincts of the Brahman breed with the superior carcass quality, fertility, maternal and milking ability of the Angus."
