About our Brangus Cattle

brangus-cattleALLES BRANGUS STUD.
Ek is bevoorreg om op n pragtige plaas “ Oxbow “ die stoet te begin saam met my vrou Altanja ,saam vorm ons name Altanja en Leslie  dan ook die stoet se naam: “ALLES”.
Nadat ek n aantal jare kommersieel met vleisbeeste geboer het ,met hoofsaaklik Brahman tipe beeste waarop ek Brangus bulle gebruik het, was die besluit om  juis met  Brangusstoet te begin maklik , want soos die naam ‘ALLES’ het die Brangus ‘ALLES’ wat n  beesboer soek .
Eienskappe soos klein kalwers met geboorte , poenskop diere  ,kalwers met goeie speengewig,diere wat by wye klimaatsomstandighede aangepas  is  en goed kruisteel met ander rasse ,maak die ras die beste keuse. Die sagte vleis is n bonus vir die verbruiker.
Ek is ‘n geregistreede lid van die Suid Afrikaanse Brangus Telersvennootskap. En om met die regte en uiteenlopende genetiese materiaal te begin het ek dan ook uit die staanspoor by vername Brangus telers my fondasie diere aangekoop  {Genelink en Malherbe & Roberts  } Ek glo dat die verse saam met die top bul van Newace iets besonders in die nabye toekoms sal oplewer.


Brangus in SA  ••  History
The Brangus was originally bred in the United States of America since 1940.  During July 1949 the American Brangus Breeders’ Society was established. In 1956 the name was changed to the International Brangus Breeders Society by 1978 there were already 150 000 registered Brangus animals in the USA and the Breeders’ Society had more than 1 800 active members. Other countries where the Brangus is to be found are Argentina, Argentina, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Botswana, Brazil, Guatemala, Iran, Mexico, Namibia, New Zealand, Paraguay Swaziland, Venezuela, Zimbabwe.
In South Africa the oldest stud is that of Mr. Raymond Green of Ladysmith, Natal.   He started breeding Brangus in the Republic of South Africa in 1963. The first Brangus Club was established in 1976 in order to gain recognition for the breed.  During 1986 the management of the South African Stud Book Association decided to accept the constitution and breeding methods of the Brangus breeders’ society of South Africa.  Recognition, which at that time was jest a formality, became a reality late in 1986 when the Brangus breed was afforded official recognition by the registrar of livestock improvement and the South African stud book and livestock improvement association. Currently, there are 113 breeders(Namibia  has  6 members) with 17666 registered Brangus cattle in the Republic. The members in Namibia own  757 Brangus animals).


THE PERFECT COMBINATION (farmers weekly 2011)
The Brangus offers a combination of traits: the Brahman’s hardiness, heat tolerance, ability to survive on low-quality feed and disease resistance, with the growth, beef quality, docility and fertility of the Angus.
The Brangus is thus popular with commercial cattlemen, especially in harsh or extreme production environments. Both parental breeds offer superior maternal traits (calving ease, maternal ability, early puberty and milk production). These ensure that the breed produces considerably heavier weaners from medium-frame cows.
The Brangus retains a superior growth rate and muscularity through the post-weaning period, both on veld or in the feedlot. It produces slaughter animals ideally suited to today’s market, which requires high-quality beef with a maximum of red meat and minimum fat. The National Carcass Champion 2010 was a Brangus carcass with the record score of 99,92%.

The polled and docile Brangus, nicknamed the “South African Tenderiser”, produces excellent tender beef, with up to 98% of carcasses classified as tender or very tender.
Commercial cattlemen seek out Brangus bulls to use on heifers, as they produce small calves. Conversely, Brangus cows can carry and produce calves by just about any breed of bull, without undue calving difficulties.

THE SOLUTION

  • The Brangus lets commercial cattlemen run an “easy care” cattle operation.
  • Calves are relatively small (32kg), minimising calving problems.
  • The Brangus genetically “dehorns” its calves. This saves on labour costs and calves don’t suffer from dehorning stress, which can make them lose 10kg to 25kg.
  • The Brangus cow is of medium frame (480kg), polled and weans calves of about 220kg.
  • The breed has a superior post-weaning growth rate (feed conversion ratio of 5,84 and average daily gain of 1 720g) on the veld or in the feedlot.
  • Slaughter animals are ideally suited to today’s market for high quality beef.
  • Brangus: an easy-care solution for commercial cattlemen

The Brangus is growing significantly in Southern Africa. By combining the strengths of the Angus and Brahman breeds, dedicated stud breeders have developed a superior synthetic breed that offers an easy-care solution for commercial beef production, writes breed director Dr Paul Lubout.
