The 410/6 Cow Family+Miss V8 410/6 Cow Family at V8 Ranch
A Louisiana girl, +Miss V8 410/6 was born at Watson Land and Cattle. At the time of her birth, us and the Watsons were constantly looking for powerful females to add to our partnership that has spanned decades. Mr. Hilton Watson said, “I have some good 800 calves over here,” and he sent them our way to see if we thought they would be good enough to add to the partnership. 410 was near weaning age when she unloaded off the trailer with her recip mother. The first impression was memorable! Jim recalls, “She was a knockout when we first saw her. Daddy (Sloan) looked at me and said: ‘I don’t think we have a better heifer here at V8 this year.’” That day, she was branded V8 and assigned number 410/6. Although never a national or international champion, +Miss V8 410/6 went on to become a highly decorated winner on our show string, and a family favorite. It was clear she had a promising future as a donor female and breeding piece. In 2020, at the age of 16, she passed peacefully from old age in the V8 front pasture.
I don’t think we have a better heifer here at V8 this year.
The +Miss V8 410/6 pedigree blends some of the best of J.D. Hudgins, Double J Ranch of Johnny Jeffcoat, and V8. She goes back to 202/3 on the bottom side, the second winningest bull in the breed’s history, behind +Mr. V8 146/8 “Sloan.”

Our Cover Girl
+Miss V8 410/6 was undeniably one of the most photogenic cows V8 Ranch has ever produced. She was a particular favorite of Manuel Amparan, who often photographed her when he came to visit. One of Manuel’s photos of +Miss V8 410/6 was even featured on the cover of The Brahman Journal. It just so happened that Manuel was at the ranch the day 410/6 passed away; we like to believe she waited for him to visit one last time so she could say a proper ‘goodbye’.
