The Adams Ranch Braford® has been developed as a unique breed of cattle by combining the best of the Brahman bloodline with the 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.

Composite Cattle: ABEEF®, ARRAB® or ARGEL®

The Adams Ranch 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. It has taken nearly fourteen years to develop and certify the ABEEF®.
