I have bought about 100 registered brangus over the last year. I like the breed but I have one question. everybody CLAIMS to raise bulls in harsh conditions and on grass so they won't melt. But every bull goes on a 112 day gain test. he might weigh 600-650 when he starts and when they finish they are around 1000-1050lbs. my statment is they are not raised on grass. they were fed all they could eat to get to that weight so the ultrasound data could be gathered. I just wonder is this just an excuse to fatten the bulls up real fast and then put them to pasture so you can say they are pasture raised or is there a real benifit in gain test.
