What is a Braham Cattle?

Breed of Cattle

The Brahman is a breed of hump-shouldered cattle with drooping necks and large, floppy ears.

In the United States, Brahmans are sometimes called Brahmas.  In other countries, they are known by the common name of zebu (pronounced ZEE boo).

Brahman’s hump is mostly a large, fatty growth that rises above the shoulders.  Brahmans were brought to the United States from India.  Because they are able to tolerate heat and refuse to accept insects and disease better than other cattle,  Brahmans are often crossed with other cattle to create new kinds of cattle that need these behavior.

Brahma bull-riding is a popular event at a rodeo.  The only equipment is a loose rope around the bull’s shoulders and a clanging bell attached below.

The rider must hold on with only one hand in his wild ride. – Dick Rogers
