The Red Brangus breed was not based on theory that two breeds ought to produce a superior third. Instead, the mating of Brahman and Angus in a commercial setting proved itself superior to straight-bred British cattle. While these commercial matings yielded both red and black progeny, it was the red calves that proved themselves superior in terms of growth, fertility and hardiness.
Red Brangus cattle combine the hardiness, disease resistance and unmatched maternal instincts of the Brahman breed with the superior carcass quality, fertility, maternal and milking ability of the Angus. Red Brangus breeders have been diligent in maintaining these characteristics and have concentrated on producing cattle that will meet the needs of the commercial industry as well as the consumer.
