The History

The mating of Brahman and Angus in a commercial setting proved itself superior to straight-bred British cattle. While these commercial matings yielded both red and black progeny, it was the red calves that proved themselves superior in terms of growth, fertility, and hardiness. Red Brangus cattle combine the hardiness, disease resistance, and unmatched maternal instincts of the Brahman breed with the superior carcass quality, fertility, and milking ability of the Angus. Registered Red Brangus cattle are solid red and naturally polled.

The breed is a blend of Brahman and Angus genetics. Because of the world’s varying environmental conditions and the varying goals and needs of cattleman, American Red Brangus Association does not set blood percentages for registration.



Breeding for disposition, easy calving, low birth weight, high weaning and low maintenance.


DISPOSITION

Temperament is an important factor in the cattle business. Red Brangus have proven to be docile and easy to handle on foot, horseback, or with a vehicle. They are a hardy, resilient breed as well. Red Brangus have the ability to thrive in a variety of climates and are highly resilient to heat and diseases. Reports show that Red Brangus are healthier and hardier than average breeds, resulting in faster weight gains and more profitable feeding.


PHYSIOLOGY

The ability of Red Brangus to yield high weaning and yearling weights with moderate frame size is a big bonus for cattlemen. Mature Red Brangus bulls typically weigh in at 1,800 to 2,000 pounds, while females weigh 1,000 to 1,200 pounds in range condition. Additionally, Red Brangus have earned a high reputation for producing a large percentage of solid red or red baldfaced polled calves when mated to commercial cows.


BREEDING EASE

Red Brangus cattle bulls mature early and can go into light service well before two years of age. Most heifers can be bred at 12 to 14 months, producing their first calves before their second birthday. Typically, Red Brangus females have less than a 12 month calving interval. Weighing in at 70 to 75 pounds, the size of Red Brangus calves allows for birthing ease. Their growth rate is quick, often surpassing most contemporaries.


MARKETABILITY

Records show that Red Brangus Sired Calves continue to top national markets and commercial cattlemen have consistently received top dollar at local auctions. Packers desire the manageable size of their carcasses and consumers demand the Yield Grade 2, USDA Choice carcass that Red Brangus consistently produces. Red Brangus is documented as the breed yielding more Certified Meat Sired than any other American Breed.
