Corriente cattle

More Information:

The Corriente breed, also called Criollo, can be traced to the first cattle brought to the Americas by the Spanish explorers in the late 15th century. Few animals remain of this original breed because by the 1900's many ranchers in the Americas were upgrading their herds with modern beef cattle that gain weight more rapidly and efficiently.  Corriente are small, narrow, lean and agile cattle with medium-length curved horns. Today, Corriente cattle are bred for their sped and dexterity as excellent roping cattle, and are not raised for beef.
