What a year we have had! This season of life has our country in uncharted waters, but at V8, we aim to be reliable, dependable, and consistent in a time that is uncertain for many.
One thing that's been a mainstay for years at V8 Ranch is outstanding females. As I always say, "the magic is in the cows," and this spring we had what we feel was the deepest set of January heifers we've ever had born. So much so, we are offering six heifers born within just a five day spread in January.
V8 collectors will notice that these heifers represent the 'who's who' of our herd, both in their sire lines and cow families. Cattle are our only business. And we breed the kind to keep us in business.
Nothing makes us more proud than seeing the V8 females that have gone through our sales grow into leading donors for you. Thank you again for your interest in our cattle, and your friendship and loyalty to V8 Ranch. I look forward to visiting with you about our cattle, and our family hopes to see you at the ranch this fall.
