Nelore are bred in Brazil. They are extremely hardy, frugal and can thrive with little human intervention under harsh nutritional, climatic
and sanitary conditions. Nelore easily convert poor forage into lean but flavoursome beef. Their quiet temperament makes them ideal for use in feedlots. Nelore are known for their prolific reproductive life, strong mothering ability and high milk yield for calves, as well as their successful crossbreeding with many European breeds.
