  • History

    Originating in India, Brahma Cattle had a tougher road to survival than many northern breeds, but as the saying goes, the strong survived. Having adapted to extreme weather, insects, food shortages, and tropical diseases, Brahma Cattle became remarkably durable. They were brought to the US in the mid-19th century, where they thrived in southern locations that were difficult for European cattle. Brahma can sweat easily, allowing them to handle higher temperatures, and they’ve developed natural resistance to diseases and pests. In fact, one study showed that where European cattle have difficulty in temperatures over 70 degrees Fahrenheit, Brahma cattle perform well until the temperature reaches 105 degrees Fahrenheit. For these reasons, farmers and ranchers prize them, even if Brahmas are not as large as other beef cattle.
