The upbreeding initiatives, a process of enhancing the breed, of King Ranch have acquired international acknowledgment and the advances have resulted in the production of new breeds, like Santa Gertrudis, a widely known cattle brand (Denhardt 1995, 19). By persistently upgrading their animals, according to Denhardt (1995), they can obtain higher grade of meat, fewer diseases, and generally fitter animals. With an aim of enhancing his domestic animals through a rigorous breed enhancement system, King attempted to alter the untamed horses and hardscrabble longhorns into premium horses and livestock in entire Texas.

Fever tick spates were widespread in 1892 hence the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture was forced to place eleven states and some Texan areas into quarantine. Ranchers were aware of the damaging financial impacts of the quarantines and resorted to the government of Texas, demanding for the formation of an organization such as the U.S. Bureau of Animal Industry (Pryor 2005, 144-145).
