Florida Cattle Ranching Five Centuries of Tradition


The cracker cattle were descendants of the seven Andalusian cattle first brought from Spain by Ponce de Leon when he made his second voyage to Florida in 1521.

Few realize that cattle first came to the United States through Florida, introduced by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1521.
