Australian Braford
(historical breed name)

(most common name)
(transboundary/brand name)

The Australian Braford was developed by Adam Rea who began transforming his herd of Hereford by crossing with Brahman in 1946. He did this to combat a tick infestation in his Herefords.

Besides being more tick resistant, Rea’s breeding aim included high fertility and excellent conformation. Twenty years later he finally ended up with approximately 3/8 Brahman and 5/8 Hereford.
