They are believed to be the future of Brazil’s beef industry for a few key reasons:

Environmental friendly: Nelore cattle might have a lower environmental impact compared to other breeds due to their unique characteristics.

Heat tolerance: Their slow metabolism makes them resistant to the hot climate.

Pest resistance: Their tough skin helps them ward off parasites and insects.

Brazil’s dominance in the beef market, with its massive herd of 225 million cattle (including Nelore), is likely to continue. This is partly due to the Nelore breed’s exceptional ability to thrive in Brazil’s challenging environment and China’s battle with African swine fever, which killed and reduced their pig population and created a massive demand for Brazilian beef.
