Championship Brahman Cattle from V8 Ranch

At V8, we enjoy competitive livestock shows and use the show ring to showcase our cattle to the public to give them an example of the quality of cattle we have for sale back at the ranch. Each year, we select the top Brahman cattle from our herd to enter the V8 show string to be exhibited at the National Brahman Show, the Houston Livestock Show, and usually one or two other shows in Texas. Since 1976, we have exhibited 57 National or International Grand Champion Brahman bulls and females. These champions are then used in our breeding program to perpetuate the quality of V8 Brahmans.
