(most common name)
The Javanês was developed by Brito Bastos in the municipality of Rio Formoso in the state of Pernambuco in Brazil in the mid-1800s. One grey zebu bull named Javanês was crossed with Curraleiro cows.
The Javanês had a small hump.
The Javanês was later bred in the state of Paraiba in eastern Brazil and is now listed as extinct in the DAD-IS database.
