Spring 2017 V8 Power Rating Rankings for Cows

After we launched our new V8 Power Rating Index, the amount of inquiries and talk about this program has been so exciting. It is so rewarding to us to see the level of excitement and interest from other Brahman breeders and our commercial clients.

If you want to know more about our Power Rating and what is is watch this video.

Many have asked how this is calculated, and if they can find out their hypothetical V8 Power Rating on their animals. If you have purchased a female or bull from us, we will gladly run your Power Rating index complementary. If you would like us to calculate the Power Rating on other animals, not purchased from V8, we can do this for $1.00 per head. Email office@v8ranch.com for more information.

We recently ran the Power Rating index on some of the leading females of our herd, and we thought it would be fun to share with you the rating of the top rated V8 Power Rated females of our herd based on the Spring 2017 EPD run.

Remember, the Power Rating is an economic measure that combines all of the relevant EPD traits, along with marketing data and other weighted factors to provide one single selection tool that our clients can use to estimate the added value they will receive from using V8 animals in their program.
