Famous Sons and Daughters
In the early 2000s, we flushed the grand old +Miss V8 983/3 to Superstroke, our leading young herd bull at the time. This union produced the incomparable Mr. V8 815/5 herd bull, Tommy Bahama. Tommy is owned by V8, Windy Hill, and the Canahuati family from Honduras. He’s made a huge impact at all three of these ranches, primarily because he’s known to be a great female producer. He sires dazzling dark-pigmented calves who can work for either red or grey programs.
As for daughters? +Miss V8 983/3’s most significant daughter would have to be +Miss V8 653/5. She’s the mother of The Rock as well as current V8 donor female, Miss V8 997/5.
