V8 Ranch®, 2012 BIF Seedstock Producer of the year, is home to some of the world's finest American Brahman cattle. The ranch operates in a four-county area located one hour south of Houston on approximately 5,000 acres of land both owned and leased along the Texas gulf coast. The purebred Brahman herd consists of 300 breeding age females with a large emphasis on embryo transfer. Our Brahman herd is a primarily a closed herd, with focus on linebreeding exceptional cow families since 1944. With a rich heritage of Brahman cattle breeding, we are proud to be one of the oldest continually operating Brahman herds in existence in the United States. V8 cattle are known for their conformation, muscling, fertility, breed character, carcass traits, efficiency and that signature V8 style.™

The Benefits of V8 Ranch Brahmans Cattleman worldwide look to V8 Ranch for oustanding Brahman cattle to be used in seedstock and commercial programs. Brahman cattle are ranked #1 for hybrid vigor, efficiency and environmental adaptability. Because of these traits and our high quality cattle, we have sold cattle to every state in the southern U.S. and exported cattle all across North and South America, Central America, Australia, Africa, and Asia. Our cattle are guaranteed and our reputation of business integrity and quality cattle have helped us build our business around repeat customers who come to V8 each year for their Brahman bulls and females. We are also proud to offer carcass ultrasound data on our cattle and are leading efforts in the Brahman breed for carcass information and improvement.

f1 female V8: The preferred choice for Commercial beef producers, Seedstock breeders, or Junior showmen
V8 Brahman cattle are designed to fit the needs of both the purebred and commercial cattlemen. We offer high profile genetics, proven cow families, the top Brahman sires, documented performance data and carcass ultrasound data on our top sire lines. We place a high emphasis on performance and production records and provide this information to all prospective buyers. We are proud to have one of the most detailed cow production record systems in the Brahman breed, with complete records dating back to 1971. Because of our intense ET program, we are able to offer our top genetics to junior exhibitors as well. In addition to our purebred herd, currently own and manage a commercial herd of 1,400 females which are part of our three-breed rotational Brahman F-1 program. This experience gives us an advantage since we also have more than 50 years of making a living in the commercial business. For 40 years, we have worked with thousands of beef producers using Brahman cattle in their F-1 program using V8 Brahman females bred to Hereford or Angus bulls, or using our low birthweight Brahman bulls on their Angus or Hereford females.

The winningest brahman ranch of all time. No other ranch in Brahman history has bred more National Grand Champions or International Grand Champions, or All American Grand Champions than V8 Ranch. We have been a multiple time winner of the HK Trophy for Premier Exhibitor of the International Show, and are home to over 30 ABBA register of renown females. In 2012, we were honored with one of our most significant awards in the history of V8 Ranch: Beef Improvement Federation's Seedstock Producer of the Year.

Since 1944, V8 Ranch has been known for its outstanding Brahman cattle. Originally founded by Howard Parker, Sloan Williams purchased the ranch and brand in 1971. For the past 50 years members of the Williams family have worked together on the ranch with a clear goal of raising the best possible Brahman cattle in the world. Our priority was, is, and always will be breeding for success through focusing on outstanding cow families. As a hands on, working family ranch, we are very proud of the fact that V8 Ranch has been managed by our immediate family each and every day of the year. We are also proud that today, there are three-generations of our family working together daily for our combined goals of success. Through the years, God has greatly blessed us, and we believe in being good stewards of the land, and providing animals with the proper care, handling, and nutrition. We follow beef quality assurance guidelines and are advocates of the beef industry. We are active members of the American Brahman Breeders Association and enjoy talking to others who share a passion for Brahman cattle.
