Brangus Beef ?



The feeling of friendship is like that of being comfortably filled with roast beef; love, like being enlivened with champagne.  ~ Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), English author

When I first moved to the country, this hay barn’s lettering mystified me.  That is, until I looked up “brangus.”  As it turns out, a Brangus is a breed of cattle that is a mix of an Angus and a Brahma bull. It seems that Brahmas have a higher tolerance for extreme heat (which we get plenty of during the summer), while Angus have their own high qualities.  A mix was someone’s bright idea.  Here’s the mix in photos, in this order:  Brahma + Angus = Brahma

Brahma + Angus =  Brangus
