The Brangus, derived from crossbreeding Angus cows and Brahman bulls in the 1950s, is a polled animal. It has reasonable heat and tick tolerance that increases according to the level of Brahman content. They are found mainly in Queensland and northern New South Wales, are predominantly black in colour, although red Brangus is acceptable.
Brangus are noted for their ability to forage under dry and hot humid conditions, for their ease of calving, milking and mothering ability. They can grow and finish over a wide range of slaughter weights, producing high yielding carcases without excess fat.
