The Brangus breed was developed to take
advantage of the superior traits of Angus and Brahman
cattle. It was stabilized at 5/8 Angus and 3/8
The Brahman developed disease resistance,
overall hardiness and outstanding maternal
instincts through natural selection. Angus are known for
superior carcass qualities. Registered Brangus are
solid black and polled.
Both parents must be registered with the
IBBA. This breed has proven resistant
to heat and high humidity. The cows are good mothers and
the calves are usually of medium size at birth.
Calves from Brangus are heavier at weaning with more total
pounds produced per cow. Brangus cows increase their
weights during the hot, wet summer months.
The hardiness of this breed along with the excellent carcass qualities and calm
temperament is what drew us to the Brangus. The
registered herd is easy to work and handles with ease.
Indian Hill commercial calves are all at
least 50% Brangus. The overall improvement of the
commercial herd took a giant step forward with the
introduction of registered Brangus bulls.
Indian Hill is a member
of the International Brangus Breeders
Association (IBBA), The Florida Brangus Breeders Association (FBBA),
and the Polk County Cattleman's
