Miss V8 566/7
+JDH Sir Avery Manso 159/6 x +Miss V8 464/6 (Charley)
|Miss V8 566/7 - A beautiful maternal designed female from one of the best cow families on V8 Ranch, this female always demands a second look from visitors. In terms of physical features, this heifer is extremely long sided, very feminine and refined, very balanced and has a very desirable underline and udder. For a female, she is ideal in her muscle design and exhibits a strong level top with a lot of volume and rib shape with excellent American Brahman breed character and hump placement.
Genetically, this heifer is a powerhouse. Six of her seven dams in her four-generation pedigree have been donors. Her dam, Miss V8 464/6, is a past World Brahman Congress Champion and International Champion Female. A flush sold on her here in the 2008 Houston sale for $20,000. Her maternal granddam, +Miss V8 188/5, has produced as many donor cows as any female on the ranch plus two International Champion females and her maternal great granddam, +Miss Claydesta 203-807 U5, is the top earning female ever at V8, with many donor cows as offspring. At the present time we have 4 full brothers and sisters to Miss V8 566/7 with us here at Houston in our show string. They will be competitive at this show and have won championships in the past two years. This line of cattle has also been very impressive in actual feedlot carcass tests and carcass ultrasound with very high IMF scores.
Miss V8 566/7 can be a powerful donor cow for any ranch in the Brahman world. She is impressive both phenotypically and genotypically. She sells heavy bred to Mr. V8 675/6, one of our top young herd sires. Her lineage and relatives have produced great cattle time and time again. She will continue that heritage. V8 Ranch retains the right to one flush at our expense and the buyers convenience. This is a front pasture female.

|Crossbreeding With Brahman Bulls / F1 Program
The Brahman bull is a popular choice for cattleman because of their hybrid vigor, efficiency, heat tolerance, and added performance. For over 40 years, we have focused on providing the commercial cowman with some of the best Brahman bulls on the market. All of our breeding bulls are backed by generations of pedigree excellence, documented performance, and the reputation of the V8 brand. We also offer carcass ultrasound scan data on sale bulls. V8 Ranch prides ourselves on offering Brahman bulls that look good, perform well, and provide the necessary traits the commercial cattleman needs for efficient beef production.

bull sales and bull development.
|Our bulls are all:
► Registered by the American Brahman Breeders Association,
► Fertility tested,
► Documented with performance data including birth weights and EPDs,
► Documented with carcass ultrasound scan data,
► Evaluated for disposition,
► Vaccinated and meet all herd health requirements as recommended by our herd veterinarians. Our herd is Brucellosis-free, TB-free, and tested annually for Johne’s disease and BVD by the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine.
► Low birthweights are a top priority for bulls going to be used on Angus or Hereford cows in an F-1 program. We collect actual birthweights on all bulls and also provide Birthweight EPDs. This is an area that we take the time to discuss with all of our bull buyers who are using a crossbreeding program.
Whether you need one bull or a truckload of bulls, give us a call. We guarantee you will be impressed with the uniformity and quality of our breeding age Brahman bulls. Please contact our office for more information!
|Brahman Junior Show Heifers & Bulls
Our Brahman show heifer and Brahman show bull prospects start at $3,000 and up. In 2012, our average junior show heifer sold for $5200. We have spring born and fall born calves, and these cattle are all sold on a private treaty basis. We do not typically picture individual cattle for sale, instead, we encourage our clients to schedule a visit to the ranch, where we will gladly show you through each calf that is for sale, straight out of the pasture. We take the time to help our customers find the best possible animal to fit their budgets. We accept scramble certificates.
We also have cattle for sale from the V8 Ranch showstring. These animals include the ‘elite of elite’ cattle on the ranch and are halter-broke and often have show competition experience. These cattle are especially interesting to those looking for herd bulls and donor prospects.
Scramble Certificates Welcome
|Semen & Embryos
Please visit our herd sires page for information on semen sales at the ranch.
We also have an elite Brahman embryo inventory as well, and these embryos can be purchased on a private treaty basis. Please contact us for information on embryo availability.
Volume and commercial discounts are available.
|Brahman Replacement Heifers for Registered or F1 Programs
Each spring and fall we offer groups of replacement heifers for sale at the ranch on a first-come, first-served basis. These uniform groups of heifers are from leading bloodlines and meet the strict V8 selection criteria that has established us as the #1 source for Brahman heifers. Again, we recommend calling to schedule a visit to the ranch to personally look through these heifers, and select the ones that best fit your program. Our females sell out very quickly, so come early!
