LOUISIANA BRAHMAN ASSOCIATION (LBA) is one of the oldest state affiliates of the American Brahman Breeders Association. LBA members are a group of cattle breeders dedicated to the promotion of the Brahman breed. The bayou state of Louisiana has a long and rich Brahman history. A state known for an environment of tropical heat, humidity and insect infestations, Brahman genetics have been a necessity for the survival of a profitable cattle industry.
These genetics were brought to Louisiana in 1854 with the Barrow importation of cattle from India. Richard Barrow of St. Francisville, Louisiana received two bulls from the Government of Great Britain, for his services in teaching cotton and sugar cane production to British officials. The “Barrow Grade” cattle soon populated much of the flatlands of the Gulf Coastal Plain from Mississippi to south Texas.
