Delagarza, You will probably know the most about these cattle. The Nelore are suspose to marble well. Can you tell me how well? Secondly I've heard they are wild, is this true.

Anonymous":3vci976s said:FWIW: Seems like I read (years ago) that they marble and/or taste better or are more tender than other bos indicus breeds. But I don't know if that's still the case --- the J. D. Hudgins type Brahman cattle may be just as good if not better. Remember that they are still indicus and you aren't going to get them to marble like an Angus or Shorthorn. As to disposition I think you can more readily find indicus cattle at the extremes more so than with English or Continental breeds -- very wild if mistreated and dog gentle and darn near affectionate if treated "kindly". Many years ago it seems like most Brahmans here in Texas, especially the bulls, were ornery critters but my observation is that has pretty much been bred out. Arnold Ziffle
