The history of Brahman cattle in Florida goes back to one family. The Partin Family. And just like any tree, this Brahman family tree has deep roots and has spread out to encompass a number of family members. So from the Brahman family tree’s start with the Partin family it has grown to include such great Brahman family names as the Barthle family, the Kempfer family, the Booth family and more. These families have helped grow the American Brahman in Florida. Breeders world-wide look to Florida for thier thick, beefy, moderate sized Brahman cattle. Ever since the first Brahman cows were unloaded off a rail car in downtown Kissimmee, Florida, in the early 1930s, Florida has been important to the evolution of the American Brahman breed.
