In 1979, ABBA saw a need to verify the parentage of the F-1 female to insure that both the producer and user of the F-1 female could be assured of the true genetic makeup of the cattle. When two purebred animals are mated, the offspring exhibit superior traits derived from breed complementarity and heterosis, and the ABBA F-1 certification program gives breeders and buyers confidence through verification in their cattle.

Since its inception, the ABBA F-1 Certification Program has evolved into the premier commercial female program in the country, with more than 90,000 females registered. Participating in the program is easy, affordable, and has proven to add a value of nearly $200/head to Golden Certified/Certified Females as compared to other breed crosses. In an effort to further promote the Golden Certified/Certified F-1 Cow and her influence, the ABBA recently launched the F-1 Plus program. This program verifies the parentage of progeny of ABBA Golden Certified or Certified cows, adding value to both the cow and her offspring.

Is your aversion to the Brahma influenced cows strictly because they wont let you sneak up behind them? and they tend show characteristics of being smarter and more protective?

The offering was elite and the bidding proved it at the 29th Annual American Brahman Breeders Association (ABBA) National F-1 & TBA Sponsored Brahman Female Sale at Caldwell, Texas on March 19th. Forty-two consignors from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arizona brought 718 head and bidders at the sale and online paid them top dollar.

“This year’s sale offering was one of the best to date with the quality running deep and the breeders doing an outstanding job of preparing and presenting the cattle, ” says ABBA Executive Vice President Chris Shivers. “By evidence of the standing-room only crowd and active bidding, it was obvious producers are looking for Brahman and F-1 cattle when restocking their pastures for the future.”

Tipp Ranch of Sealy, Texas, was awarded the champion pen of Brahmans at the 29th Annual ABBA National F-1 & TBA Brahman Sale. This pen of six open Registered Brahman heifers brought an average of $4,150 per head.

John Malazzo Farms of Caldwell, Texas, exhibited the champion F-1 pairs. These five ABBA Certified F-1 Hereford x Brahman pairs with Angus sired calves brought $4,500 per pair.

Bonchasse Land & Cattle Co. of Grand Cane, Louisiana, was awarded the champion pen of bred F-1 females. These five Golden Certified Hereford x Brahman F-1 females bred to Angus bulls brought $3,500 per head.

John Malazzo Farms received the champion exposed pen of F-1’s recognition. This pen of five ABBA Certified Hereford x Brahman F-1 Females exposed to Angus bulls brought $3,600 per head.

Bonchasse Land & Cattle Co also won champion pen of open F-1 heifers. Their pen of five ABBA Golden Certified Hereford x Brahman F-1 Females brought $2,850 per head.

Sale averages include:
– 54 Golden Certified/Certified F-1 pairs averaged $3,968.04
– 36 Bred Golden Certified/Certified F-1’s averaged $3,076.33
– 222 Exposed Golden Certified/Certified F-1’s averaged $2,655.59
– 96 Open Golden Certified/Certified F-1’s averaged $1,850.84
– 16 Bred Registered Brahman females averaged $3,018
– 11 Exposed Registered Brahman females averaged $2,622
– 58 Open Registered Brahman females averaged $3,237

The sale was managed by Broken Triangle Cattle Marketing and Caldwell Livestock Commission, and was dedicated to Bill Crain of Pearsall, Texas, for his longtime belief, dedication and support to the ABBA F-1 Certification Program. Crain has been a lifelong cattleman and believer in the Brahman/Hereford F-1 cow.

Ron has to sneak up on them. He fooled around and filled in his pond so now, he can't gather his black cows the usual way----2 men and 100' seine, using a Zebco and a hula popper for any straggler that jumped out of the seine.

The Certified Brahman Beef ® brand is the best of the best, then imagine something even better. Muscle fibers as big as shoe laces. Toughness that seals in the flavors. One of our own ranchers, Caustic Bruno, provides this testimonial: "I use it for coyote bait. The coyotes die of exhaustion trying to eat it".
