Bucaramanga is located in Santander, one of the leading Colombian states (or departments) for Cebu livestock.
This department, with more than 30,000 square kilometers of surface, an altitude of 1,230 meters above sea level, has lands with favorable conditions to develop excellent meat and dairy cattle breeding operations. In addition, its meadows keep a great history, considered for many years, the cradle of cattle in eastern Colombia and the birthplace of Brahman in the country. At the beginning of the 20th century, several municipalities of the department of Santander hosted animals from India and Pakistan, where untiring work began to promote the genetic improvement of the breed.
These conditions, along with a strong agricultural economy, position Bucaramanga as a favorable place for the celebration of the most important event in the Brahman world!
