We would like to introduce everyone to our new herdsman and show cattle manager, Kolten Thigpen. Kolten is a recent December 2011 graduate of Texas A&M University, where he earned a B.S. in animal science. Prior to attending A&M he also attended Texas A&M University Kingsville. While at A&M Kolten was a member of the Texas A&M Football Team. He is originally from Hondo, Texas where his family runs the Pearsall Livestock Auction Barn and operates a commercial cattle operation. He also raises American influence club calves. We are excited to have Kolten as part of the V8 team and we hope everyone will welcome him to the Brahman breed this spring!
