BELMONT RED

 The Belmont Red was bred by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organizationís (CSIRO) Division of Animal Genetics near Rockhampton in Queensland, Australia.

Its genetic background is approximately 50 percent Africander, 25 percent Hereford and 25 percent Shorthorn.

 
The breed has been developed to improve the fertility of Bos indicus breeds while retaining the characteristics of heat and tick tolerance. Their performance has been proven in comparison trials on research stations in Australia and Africa.

 The Belmont Red has exhibited higher fertility than pure Bos indicus breeds and better than most other Bos indicus X Bos taurus crosses. Their docile nature and good performance have been recognized by Pacific Islands and the Philippines where improvement in livestock population is carefully monitored.

 Heat tolerance has remained remarkable good and tick resistance, while lower than that in pure Bos indicus, is still high.

 The performance of all bulls registered by the Belmont Red Association is recorded and this information is available.
