Facts about Brahman
The Brahman is mainly used for breeding and the meat industry.

Breeding Aim
Probably the greatest tribute to the Brahman breed and its breeders is the rapid growth. Brahman cattle are also known for their extreme tolerance to heat and are widespread in tropical regions. They are resistant to insects due to their thick skin.

History of the Brahman Breed
The Brahman breed originated from Bos indicus cattle from India, the „sacred cattle of India“. Through centuries of exposure to inadequate food supplies, insect pests, parasites, diseases and the weather extremes of tropical India, the native cattle developed some remarkable adaptations for survival which cattle producers in the USA found useful and advantageous. Three principal strains of Indian cattle were brought to the United States and used in the development of the Brahman breed; the Guzerat, the Nelore and Gir. The Krishna Valley strain was also introduced and used but to a lesser extent. The general similarity of the Guzerat strain to the cattle selected and developed in the USA would indicate that cattlemen working with the breed have generally preferred this type. Today, its use in crossbreeding has become a great tool for the production of steers for various purposes. Its meat is highly appreciated in the five continents.

Characteristic
The Brahman is characterised by a large hump over the top of the shoulder and neck. Brahmans vary in colour from very light grey or red to almost black. A majority of the breed are light to medium grey. Brahmans are intermediate in size among beef breeds. Bulls will generally weigh from 720 to 1000 kilograms and cows from 450 to 630 kilograms in average condition.
