The Adams Ranch Braford

The Adams Ranch Braford® has been developed as a unique breed of cattle by combining the best of the Brahman bloodlines strong tropical climate hardiness with the classic Hereford cattle of England, long noted for the quality of their beef to create the Adams Ranch Braford®, a cattle that possess unequaled qualities to permit open range ranching in Florida’s sunny but tropical climate with the tenderness and taste of the Hereford tradition.

The Adams Ranch Braford® has been the heart of our cattle program because of solid values of maternal performance and heat tolerance. After 40 years in a closed herd breeding program, the Adams Ranch Braford® calves are free of genetic defects and provide a uniform, sound base for our composites.

Composite Cattle: ABEEF®

The Adams Ranch Reds® composite program began in 1990 using the genetically uniform Braford herd to develop a new type of beef animal that would provide maximum heterosis with a carcass that would meet both quality and yield standards.

The Adams Ranch composites meet all of the requirements of feedlots, producers, and consumers. They offer a simple means of maximizing heterosis and stabilizing phenotype in a simple program without cross-breeding.

It took nearly fourteen years to develop and certify the ABEEF®. Improvements to the ABEEF® cattle continue to be made by selecting the best of the best from each year's calf crop.
