    The Brahman was the first breed to put its hoof on the U.S. I'm a Brahman breeder also have f1Bradford and brangus the Brahman cow lives longer then continental breeds and has better calving ability which I call it "they can have elephants" and heat tolerant that's all u need for a beef cow in the south now if your a Yankee keep the junk like Angus and Charloais the breeds that productive till about 10 yrs y'all who say Brahman are wild they can get wild and probably 7 to 10 of them may hurt u for there calves that's what mama's are supposed to do now if u are rowdy w your cattle Brahmans don't get to that u have to be gentle the Brahman is more curious then the European breeds

    All Bos Indicus breeds (like the Brahmah) are better suited to the south because they come from a warm place(India). But that doesn't mean they are better than all other cows. I am a rancher from North Dakota and the Brahmah don't do as well in the cold environment up here. I raise the Salers breed. You said continental breeds only calve up to ten years, but I frequently have cows calving until their 15-17 years old. And some places need the aggressive mothers. My salers are extremely aggressive mothers and in return I don't lose calves to coyotes like my other neighbors. I saw your post and thought I better show you why we raise the Bos taurus or continental breeds.

    Some of mine are Brangus crossed with them the herford and got the black baldies . The fact is that at present times the black baldies sell higher at action than the brahmas so for that reason I tend to stay with the angus influence but the brahmas are better moms

    Brahman are a great breed to cross with in the south because they are heat tolerant. In colder climates they are not needed and there carcass traits are less desirable.

    There is more to cows than how fast the calves grow. Brahman crossed calves grow faster than pure Brahman calves because of heterosis. They still don't have the best carcass traits. Don't get me wrong, every cow I have raising cows in East Texas has at least 3/8 Brahman in them because of the environment I raise cattle in. But they get bred to pure bred British breed bulls to increase the carcass traits. Up north Brahman cross cattle would be stupid.

    I'm just saying one breed doesn't do it all. Cross breeding is where it's at for a commercial guy.

    Actually the 1st cattle to North America were brought by the Spanish folks that based in Mexico.

    Those became the Texas Longhorns later.

    King likely brought the brahma in simpley to cross with Shorthorn to build the Santa Gertrudis breed for his place.

    there's 1 billion cattle on Earth.
    750 million head have some ear because most livestock is raised from the equator ( N and S Tropics ) on South.

    Most Brahma cattle are in Fact Dairy Brahmas. in India ( bout 250 to 280 million head and Brazil bout 200 million head )....the 2 countries that run bout Half the Globe's total cattle numbers.

    Get North a ways and you don't want much or any ear or brahma cross in those cows. just 2 darn cold for em.
