Are you looking for a breed of cattle that can thrive in a changing climate, improve your farm or ranch, and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels without sacrificing carcass quality? The Corriona is the perfect choice for you!
The Corriona breed is a new creation designed for adaptability and ability to thrive in harsh environments by crossing Corriente cows with Mashona bulls. This breed combines the hardiness and disease resistance of Corriente with the early sexual maturity, fattening ability, heat tolerance, and pest resistance of the Mashona.
The Corriona is an eco-engineer first, designed according to Mother Nature’s specifications to perform while improving your land. Selected for fertility and easy fleshing in a high-density (competitive) grazing environment, these cattle have had all the crutches kicked out from underneath them and are required to do well with what the land gives them. No dewormer, no vaccinations, and a minimum amount of protein supplement has produced an animal that is equal to the monumental task of healing our degraded and desertifying landscapes.
These animals are best suited for direct-to-consumer beef producers and commercial producers looking for bulls that will improve herd performance without sacrificing the characteristics that bring a good price at the sale barn.
The Corriona’s smaller frame means they sexually mature and marble earlier. This allows them to devote more of the forage they take in to growth rather than maintenance. You will also have a higher percentage of conception among heifers at 12-14 months of age. All that plus the fact that you can graze more of them per acre makes the Corriona a sound financial and environmental investment for your farm or ranch.
