(historical breed name)
(most common 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.
