The Santa Gertrudis was the first breed developed in the Western Hemisphere.
Experimental crossbreeding of the Brahman and Shorthorn cattle
began on the Santa Gertrudis Division of the King Ranch.
In 1920 an outstanding bull calf called "Monkey" was produced. Highly potent,
he became the foundation sire of the Santa Gertrudis breed.
 Through many generations his descendant shave retained the rapid and efficient growth,
solid red color, hardiness, and good disposition for which "Monkey" was noted.
The United States Department of Agriculture recognized the Santa Gertrudis as a distinct breed in 1940.
