The Global Beef Breed
The international marketing of the American Brahman breed dates back to the early 1930s when the organization was still in its infancy. Through the efforts of the founding fathers, ABBA staff, and many ABBA members, the American Brahman breed has become one of the most influential breeds in the world. Brahman cattle are amongst the top of beef breeds, which are exported from the United States.
The United States Department of Agriculture realize the importance of the Brahman breed’s role in the international marketplace, and because of this ABBA is able to utilize funds from the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to facilitate educational seminars, judge requests and trade missions to international countries. With this mission in mind, volunteer members of the ABBA international committee work hard to nurture traditional international markets and look for new and emerging markets where Brahman cattle can thrive.
