After the importation realized by Torres
Homem, there was an increasing in the sanitary demands presented by the countries that
imported Brazilian meat. Due to that, our country has been forced to raise sanitary
barriers related to animals came from India, to preserve the Brazilian cattle from the
many diseases that can be found in that country.

quality herd was destroyed:
With the end of the Berlin's wall and the Russian Empire, Bulgaria started to live a very difficult economical situation, their research centers were closed and the herd was slaughtered for meat consumption.
That deprived us from an excellent
supplier of quality genetic material without the limits of the sanitary barriers.
