Santa Gertrudis

Santa Gertrudis bull

In the 1920's and 1930's, the King Ranch at Kingsville, Texas, crossed Shorthorns and Brahmans to develop the Santa Gertrudis. The cattle are about five-eighths Shorthorn and three-eighths Brahman. Large numbers of them live in the humid areas of the South and Southwest. The calves grow rapidly and mature into large cattle. The breed has been exported to Africa and several Latin American countries.
