2 Bar S Ranch is a working ranch in Hillsborough County in central Florida. Our mission is to do the best we can at whatever we do. In this case, it is the breeding and production of purebred Brahman cattle. Brahman cattle are native to India but were imported into the United States many years ago. The several Indian types were brought here and formed the foundation for what was to become, through decades of selective breeding, the American Brahman.
The American Brahman is a beef breed of cattle. Its main contribution to the cattle industry is the increased "hybrid vigor" imparted to the offspring through crossbreeding. This hybrid vigor manifests itself through increased size, strength, vigor and other traits.
Through crossbreeding, the Brahman also provides those other traits that are important to beef cattle. These include the brahman's ability to forage in rough conditions, its heat tolerance and resistance to disease and insects; and don't forget its mothering ability.
