General Questions

What is Brahman Country Genetics?

Brahman Country Genetics LLC specializes in stud bulls, bull semen, and embryo sales primarily of Brahman cattle and other breeds that complement Brahman cattle. We proudly serve customers across the United States - specifically the gulf coast region - and all four hemispheres of the world to achieve their goals using Brahman genetics.

Brahman Country Genetics primarily features bulls, females and genetics from B.R. Cutrer, Inc., or other reputable herds that have been verified for quality, accuracy in performance, and bloodlines of integrity. 

Brahman Country also helps provide marketing assistance for progressive Brahman Country cooperator herds across the southern United States. Formed in 2019 by Brandon and Rachel Cutrer (BRC), Brahman Country now encompasses a unified group of progressive Brahman breeders to serve the commercial cattle industry. 

What performance data do you offer?

Performance is one of our pillars at Brahman Country. In order to participate in our Brahman Country Genetics, cattle must have the following performance information:

  • Actual birthweight, weaning weight and yearling weight measurements
  • Registered with the American Brahman Breeders Association
  • DNA verified for parentage
  • Genomically-enhanced EPDs
  • Disposition scores
  • Carcass ultrasound data preferred
  • Cow production records

What Are the EPDs in Cattle?

EPD stands for expected progeny difference. EPDs:

  • Predict what traits an animal will pass on to their offspring
  • Use performance records of the animal and its parents – such as birth, weaning, and yearling weight and environment – to determine their value
  • Help you compare value on sires, cows, and younger cattle

We’ve taken this valuable tool a step further by including the results of cattle DNA testing into the traditional EPD score. Genomic-enhanced EPDs can help you make accurate predictions about younger bulls that haven’t produced offspring yet. These advanced EPDs can increase your accuracy by over 10%.

How Can I Be A Brahman Country Cooperator?

The Brahman Country Genetics Cooperator program is designed to unify progressive-minded Brahman breeders by focusing on elite genetics backed by performance. Brahman Country cooperators must primarily utilize BRC genetics or other bloodlines approved by our BRC leadership team.  Brahman Country Cooperators benefit from marketing assistance from Ranch House Designs, exclusive semen and herd bull opportunities from BR Cutrer, and more.  We also help our cooperators market and sell their cattle through the Brahman Country sales. To inquire about being a Brahman Country cooperator, email office@brcutrer.com

We do not guarantee specific results when used in reverse sorting, but are happy to share any data we have regarding past performance of our semen.
