It symbolises the superior quality standard we seek.”

Based on a website, the Nelore meat is “considered to be very tasty and high quality” and “the meat is lean and tender, and contains just enough fat”. Veterinarian Joao Carneiro said that the cow came from a very valuable lineage.

This milestone also raises the value of the Nelore cattle breed in the world. Based on Guinness, they have “remarkable heat tolerance mainly attributed to their fur, which effectively reflects a wide range of light wavelengths, as well as their unique sweat glands”.
