I have been breeding Brahman cattle for 30 years and would not change to another Tropical breed as these cattle perform superbly in hot or cold climates. Brahmans from the USA over the last few years have in many cases ruined the temperament of the good Australian Brahman. They have helped somewhat to increase the gene pool of Brahmans in our country. I had a dabble with a high Indu content American blood bull he ruined the good temperament of my cattle. I now have the good temperament back in my herd by using one infusion of a predominately Australian blood bull. What a relief to have that quietness back. Our Australian cattle are much more hardier than USA cattle .They are less pampered throughout the tough seasons that we endure here. Any other Australians with a similar experience? Some of the cattle imported to Australia from the USA were an absolute disgrace. Some Australians were very gullible when they went to buy them. The Yanks seen them coming!
