Uberaba - The beef capital of Brazil 30/3/12

We visited ABS, a bull breeding centre which collects semen for commercial cattle breeders and stud breeders, owned by the beef farmers. There are 120 bulls at the centre ranging from Brahmans, Nelore, Tabapau and Guzera. Most bulls are on a feed system containing 4 kg of grain, grass and silage. We saw one Nelore bull, Novel JS DA BJ, a 6 year old bull weighing 1100kg, with a scrotal size of 42cm and 82% semen count was sold for a half share of $400,000 Australian Dollars. It was a very clean and productive beef breeding centre.
