Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz cattle represent over ten years of intense research and development by the King Ranch aimed at creating a more market acceptable beef animal that produced superior results as both a feeder and seedstock animal in hot, humid, and unfavorable environments.   The Santa Crus is a composite of � Santa Gertrudis, � Red Angus and � Gelbvieh.

There are both polled and horned individuals. In color, they range from a light red or honey to a Santa Gertrudis cherry red. Mature weight in cows ranges from 1,100 - 1,200 pounds, while bulls tip the scales from 1,800 - 2,000 pounds.
