 The development of the Barzona began in 1942 when F.N. Bard and his wife, at their ranch in the intermountain desert area of Yavapai County, Arizona. They hoped to develop a breed that would be adapted to their area which was rugged and rocky, with extreme temperatures, sparse rainfall, and scattered feed. Said Bard, "I want to find a breed-or make a breed of cattle, that with the same number, on the same range, will produce more pounds of salable beef." Read More
