My family has farmed in Florida for generations and our cattle of choice has always been the Brahman. The high temperatures in our part of the country would harm many types of cattle, but not the Brahman. They thrive in warmer weather. The Brahman is also a top choice of cattle for their meat production. Because they carry less fat, they produce more top grade meat. They're also on the easier side to handle. We had a Brahman Bull named Sanchez. He was 2000 pounds of pure terrifying muscle, but to my grandfather he was a teddy bear. He would let my grandfather pet and brush him without a care in the world. I swear they probably cuddled when no one was watching. He was not only a breeder and meat producer, he was like a pet. When the children came around he was a little standoffish but what kind of cattle wouldn't be? Sanchez was our best breeding bull to this day fathering over 130 healthy children.
