University of Florida project to improve Brahman cattle

Scientists at the University of Florida plan to develop Brahman cattle that can better tolerate heat, produce more tender meat and have improved fertility. Researchers would like Brahman cattle owners from Florida to participate in the project, but first researchers will collect pedigree data and records from producers. This data will identify animals with superior marbling, tenderness and fertility. The goal is to improve the purebred Brahman population in Florida. Florida ranchers who want to participate in this study may call 352-392-2367.
