About South Florida Brahman
Compared to some of the iconic breeders in America, South Florida Brahmans is relatively new to the purebred seed-stock industry. However, prior to making our first cattle acquisition, we traveled to some of the most prominent cattle ranches in the Gulf Coast of the United States, as well as journeyed to notable operations in Central and South America. Our mission was to visit with these successful ranch owners and their herd managers to gather their input on the most functional genetics that continue to make the greatest impact within their programs. Although there are quite a number of Brahman influenced purebred breeds in existence, it was these enlightening expeditions that brought us to the decision to develop our own small herd of the most diverse, resilient and efficient breed of cattle in the world; the American Brahman. In fact, it is the all encompassing characteristics that the Brahman cattle possess that made the decision for us.
Although difficult to admit, we made several mistakes in the infancy stages of our new venture. Following such ill fated circumstances, we quickly regained our confidence by working with wonderful, straightforward people. We made additional genetic purchases with guarantees that the respective animals bought would indeed perform as represented and were given assurances that our interests would be preserved. And today, we are filled with pride as we take this opportunity to thank a few of these great families for helping in our successful breeding program. Through acquiring superior genetics and utilizing the latest breeding technologies, we quickly placed an emphasis on buying and selling the best the breed could offer. Today, South Florida Brahmans consists of Tony Acosta and his son Anthony Acosta who serves as herd manager. Together they work to breed Brahman cattle that are competitive in the show ring and perfectly conditioned to perform for the purebred breeder.
They say once Brahman cattle get in your heart…there’s no getting them out. For our family, that has certainly been the case. Passionate about the Brahman breed and the way they perform for cattlemen in the Gulf Coast and Caribbean region, our family works hard to condition gentle cattle with excellent bloodlines that out perform any other type in the tropical environment.
At South Florida Brahmans we believe in investing in only the best. We invite you to use our website to learn more about our program and cattle and would welcome any opportunity to share more information about our herd or the excellence of the Brahman breed.
