Brahmousin

The Brahmousin was created in the late 1970's by Daryl Wiggins in Texas. The first of the breed were produced from a multiple embryo transfer from a French-imported Limousin dam called Gloria. This resulted in six heifers and three bull calves which formed the Limousin base. The stock was then cross bred to Brahman cattle which achieved an F-1 cross, and further crosses over a broader base led to the 5/8 to 3/8 purebred.

The goal was to blend the best of the Limousin and Brahman traits, this created a breed that have excellent reproductive efficiency, mothering ability, excel in muscling and growth traits and are adaptable in varying environmental conditions.    more...
