+Ms Claydesta 203-807U5

Daughter +Miss V8 188/5 and Granddaughter +Miss V8 464/6


+Ms. Claydesta 203-808U5 is the daughter of Suva and the famous National Champion Diamond T 432 cow. Claydesta was bred to V8 herd bulls like +Mr. V8 700/3 and (+)JDH Charley Manso 590/6, and we’re not exaggerating when we say it made magic.


+Miss V8 188/5, Claydesta’s most celebrated daughter, is a feminine, deep-bonded, level-topped Brahman female, loaded with muscle and productive power.

Origin Story

During the 1980s, Brangus breeder and Texas oilman Clayton Williams had established an elite herd of Brahman cattle. He hosted a special event sale at Houston in 1988, and it was there we purchased +Ms. Claydesta 203-808U5 for a cool $5,000.

Famous Sons and Daughters

Claydesta’s daughter, +Miss V8 188/5, was sired by +Mr. V8 700/3, who was descended from the original 1944 Ann Forgason 5 (ABBA 4320) foundation cow line. +Miss V8 188/5 is one of just two cows at V8 to produce two different International Champion daughters, Miss V8 831/5 and Miss V8 464/6.
+Miss V8 80/5 is another of Claydesta’s legendary daughters. She’s a Charley daughter and a superior donor for both V8 Ranch and Satterfield Ranch, with an extraordinary 99 progeny recorded in ABBA.
Our exquisite young donor +Miss V8 464/6 carries on the Claydesta and 188/5 influence. She is the 2007 International Champion Female and the 2008 World Brahman Congress Champion Female. Her two powerhouse herd bull sons Mr. V8 191/7 (the 2014 Reserve International Champion Bull) and Mr. V8 194/7 earned her the 2013 National Champion ET Produce of Dam and the 2014 International Champion Produce of Dam.

What Makes Her Special?

807U5 was the foundation for one of the most impressive and decorated cow families in the history of V8 Ranch; her family alone has generated more than $750,000 in progeny sales.
