Versatile, very resistant, with adaptability and high productive potential. The Nellore breed is the most established breed in Brazil. It stands out for the high reproduction capacity of its dames, who possess maternal ability, ease of delivery and instinct of protection of the calves. The calves are born small and lively and soon gain weight and begin to present excellent carcass quality. It is the most commonly used breed as a basis for crossbreeding with beef breeds. Several works focused on meat quality are already developed with purebred animals too.
