The Brangus breed makes up the predominance of SMR Farms' cattle operation. The Brangus breed was developed to utilize the superior traits of Angus and Brahman cattle. Their genetics are stabilized at 3/8 Brahman and 5/8 Angus. The combination results in a breed which unites the traits of two highly successful parent breeds. The Brahman, through rigorous natural selection, developed disease resistance, overall hardiness and outstanding maternal instincts. Angus are known for their superior carcass qualities. They are also extremely functional females which excel in fertility.
The breed has proven resistant to heat and high humidity. The cows are good mothers and the calves are usually of medium size at birth. The cattle respond well to conditions of abundant feed and have exhibited hardiness under conditions of stress.
