Free electronic download only.  This publication highlights the positive effect of Brahman influence on prices of breeding stock sold in a South Texas auction. Though Brahman influence typically decreases the price for feeder cattle in other regions, its well-known breed effects and hybrid vigor in crosses add significant value to breeding stock in South Texas. Cattle attributes for the lots considered in this research include: number of head, coat color, frame size, condition, Brahman influence, physiological stage (open, bred, exposed, pairs, three-in-one), polledness, price per head, and weight.
