By combining two legendary maternal breeds – Simmental and Brahman – and capturing retained maternal heterosis, American Simbrah offers a rare balance of superior fertility, maternal weaning weight, and lifetime productivity with unequaled environmental adaptability.

Simbrah is the obvious choice for Brangus, Braford, and Beefmaster type commercial cows.  Using Simbrah will add performance, significantly improve Yield Grade and Rib Eye Size, and maintain maternal value and replacement flexibility.
