Quality meat at the lowest cost and highest profitability.
A Brazilian breed, originally from the region of the city of Tabapuã, in the State of São Paulo. The pillar of the breed was a naturally polled bull with a white coat and great development, which, mated with predominantly female Nelores, produced polled animals of excellent conformation.
The selection of this breed began in 1940, but it was only officially recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture in 1971.
Tabapuã cattle are the breed with the greatest growth in their lineage in the last 12 years in Brazil, always based on zootechnical tests, being a great option for industrial crosses or as a purebred.
It is characterized by the complete absence of horns, allowing neither calluses nor buds. An ogival skull and a subconvex head profile are important racial characteristics.
The ideal coat goes from white to gray, with the ends usually darker in males, the ears are medium in size and the beard is loose and pleated.
It is a docile animal, sexually precocious, and reproductive, with a high fertility index. Females have excellent maternal ability with good bone constitution and well-distributed musculature. Calves are born healthy and vigorous.
Males are very precocious animals, with firm and well-shaped muscles, conferring good carcass yield. Females, at 48 months, can reach 600 kg and males at 48 months, can reach 900 kg.
