Adaptaur cattle are a beef cattle breed. They’re raised mainly for meat production.
The Adaptaur cows are a strain of meat cows that are raised primarily for meat production. It was established at the Belmont Research Station near Rockhampton, Queensland. The breed was selected primarily for tolerance and greater immunity to heat and cattle ticks.
It was developed from crosses between Hereford and Shorthorn cows in Australia in the 1950s. Presently the strain is found in Australia’s tropical regions. Read more information about the strain under.
Adaptaur Cattle Characteristics
Adaptaur cattle are medium-sized creatures. They have a dark and short pigmented coat. Their coat is quite good and they have good resistance to both external and internal parasites. Both cows and bulls are polled, so they have no horns. The bulls are pretty larger compared to cows.
The Adaptaur cattle are early maturing creatures. They’re ideal for their climates. They are high immunity to cattle ticks. They’re capable of producing vigor that is substantial when used for crossbreeding.
The F1 progeny grows faster and is more abundant than Brahmans, and also the Adaptaurs have resistance to worms and ticks as Brahmans. The Adaptaur cattle breed gets the positive carcass attributes of the Bos taurus cows, and therefore are at least 10 percent more efficient than the Brahman cattle.
