They spend a large part of their time in the scendaros grazing. Last week I drove out in the pasture to check on them and they were literally in the brush grazing... not just in the scendaro... in the brush. :)

I would not convert to Brahman where I am in Kentucky, furthermore, I love what I raise but it would be fun to have one to learn their nature. I have seen them on the savannas of Africa, they are interesting cattle. My concern would be their docility.
those were developed in the US, so was the name Brahman...there's different temperaments across the bos indicus breeds...I've been around several different.. The Gyr is dog gentle. Got a head as big as a wash tub, and a body like a longhorn :cowboy:

That's native pasture but I put herbicide at the top of the list before any thing else. Kenny and other can attest to what this country looks like with out it. We also have really low stocking rates and have had record years for rainfall. Just 3 or 4 weeks ago we had 12"... that helps out a lot. :) When it goes dry, they will earn their keep.

I wonder what that country look like right now. A lot of stuff West and south of us is burnt up. They are about to be coming to town with cattle if the don't get rain this month.

Do you have the sale report? Looks like that was the place to be. I have room for some good cattle priced right.

6mo bred Tiger Heifer $2000... looks like she blew her blk baldie counterparts out of the water... 3N1 blk baldies only $1650.. Angus cows bred to Sim-Angus bulls $1250... Open tiger heifers $1225... bigger tiger heifers $1550

The buyers are definitely buying certain stuff and the others are pretty cheap. Little single black F1 heifer went thru by herself and didn't even bring $1000. I could have turned her out and made money on her. With a little grass and polish she would have been a looker.

I love my Brahman bull. This past year about half of my Angus cows were bred to him and the other half to a Hereford. It will be interesting to see what kind of money I get with the Brahman crosses compared to the black baldies at the sale barn. Black baldies are all they want around here. I'm planning on keeping the Brahman/Angus females to grow my herd, although a friend wants all of them and says he will pay significantly higher than market value.

Let us know back how it turns out. A lot of people express their theories on here but very few of them put any real life numbers behind them.

Can Brahmans be run up north? I don't know much about the breed, but it looks like a southern range only breed?

Great looking cattle by the way!

The Brahmans and brimmer composites do alright in northern states but they needs some attention during the winters. High maintenance and high input cattle. If you want have some brimmer blood in your herd, try an Ultrablack or Beefmaster Advancer.

I don't think you will take a hit on them Brahman cross steers as bad as some people on here say you will. IF you will sell them at the right sale but you need to haul them east of OKC or I think you will. I would take them to Ada, Holdenville,Bristow, some of the bigger sales east/southeast of OKC.
