About Canchim CattleAbout Canchim Cattle



Canchim cattle are medium-sized beef cattle developed in Central Brazil by crossing European Charolais cattle with Indu-brazil cattle. Those Indu-brazil cattle breeds were kept in Brazil where Asian Zebu type cattle are best suited to the tropical conditions. In the last century, the Zebu cattle were introduced to Brazil where they were extensively crossbred with the herds of native cattle. The Zebu type or Indian breed are well known for their ability to survive in the tropics, adapted quickly to Brazil and soon populated large areas, considerably improving Brazilian beef cattle breeding. Compared to the European cattle breeds, the Zebu cattle were lower in growth rate and meat production and it became clear that the beef cattle required genetic improvement. But the European cattle breeds could not simply replace the original cattle as they could not perform well as they do in temperate climates in Brazil and some factors such as diseases and parasite would affect.

They are white to light beige. They have short and smooth hair on their coat. They are muscular and similar in conformation to Charolais cattle. But they have a small hump which obviously retained from their Zebu/Nelore cattle roots
