florida cattleFlorida is where beef cattle production began

The Texas Longhorn gets all the attention but the first beef cattle in the United States originated right here in Florida, when the Spaniards imported them in the early 1500s. Virtually every strain and breed of cattle in the United States started in Florida.

Florida produces cattle for export as well as domestic consumption throughout the United States.

Cattle and Cows

Often the terms cattle and cow are used interchangably. In fact, cattle refers to the plural of cows, and cows refer to the females of the species. So all cows are cattle, but all cattle are not cows. On a dairy farm, all cattle are cows used to produce milk. On a cattle ranch, there is a mixture of cows, steers, and bulls that are raised to produce beef.

Florida Cattle Breeds

Black Angus is the most common breed of cattle raised in Florida and the United States. Like many cattle breeds it has its origins in Scotland and is known for its flavorful meat.

Brahman Cattle were bred in the United States from cattle originating in India, and are known for their tolerance of heat, strong sun, and humidity. They suit the Florida climate.

Brangus Cattle are a crossbreed between Brahman and Angus cattle, taking the best from each.

Florida Cracker Cattle are the ancestors of the original cattle brought to Florida by the Spaniards and developed into a heat tolerant breed that can be raised in the Florida wild.

Ona White Angus is a highbred version Black Angus that because of its white color is more tolerant of the hot Florida sun.

Senepol cattle are also known for heat tolerance and longer grazing times in the hot sun.

Highland Cattle, originally from Scotland, are found in Florida and are notable for their shaggy coats.

Miniature Cattle and Miniature Cows

See our miniature farm animal page for complete descriptions of various breeds of miniature cattle and mini cows. What miniature cows make the best milk cows?
