Comments

This striking +Mr. V8 191/7 daughter is the longest-bodied heifer in the sale and incredibly attractive from the profile. A great genetic breeding piece with so much promise in her future, she has been a standout since birth. Her two granddams, +Miss V8 464/6 (International and World Brahman Congress Champion) and +Miss V8 805/6 (dam of Mr. V8 146/8) are two of the all time great cows in our 77 year history, and that’s saying quite a bit.

Much discussion was made within the family on if we should sell this heifer, who earned the nickname “La Princesa.” Her dam, Miss V8 610/8 is a full sister to Mr. V8 146/8 “Sloan,” our three-time Houston champion bull. 610/8 is one of the up and coming young donors in our herd and a big, impressive showstopper of a cow. A V8 Superblend™, Miss V8 449/9 is from the +Miss V8 805/6 cow family blended with the +Claydesta 807U5 through her sire +Mr. V8 191/7. He was an International Reserve Champion and sired Mr. V8 604/7, "Man of Steel," also an International Champion. He also sired Mr. V8 933/7 “Yeti.”

From a performance standpoint this heifer has seven EPD markers ranked in the top 15% or better for WW, YW, TM, CEM, Tenderness, CW, and REA. She is naturally upheaded with a lot of continuation out of that front end, with as much style and eye appeal as any heifer in the sale. With her pedigree and phenotype, there are a lot of fun ways you could mate her using the most popular bloodlines in the breed. She has plenty of beautiful photos of her taken on the ranch by Manuel Amparan, and a lovely photo here, but I want you to send me a picture of her when she’s about 5 years old. That one will be a cover shot. The donor cow potential here is off the charts. BW: 80 pounds.
