The 539/6 Cow Family

Miss V8 539/6 at V8 Ranch

Origins

It’s common knowledge that when a group of Brahman cattle are for sale, Sloan Williams can’t resist. In 2004, Bert Steindorf had a group of cows for sale that included several with the VM (Vic and Buck Maspero) prefix, our respected South Texas friends who used predominantly V8 and JDH bloodlines. Sloan purchased the group, who had been exposed to Mr. V8 736/5, a bull sold to Steindorf prior. The dam of 539/6 was pregnant with her when she came to V8. At weaning, the little fall-born heifer 539/6 was selected by Sloan to be kept as a replacement due to her mother’s beautiful udder, and our admiration of the outcross Maspero genetics.

Lineage

While she was kept due to her outcross genetics, both Steindorf and the Masperos were “V8 collectors” so there’s a good amount of V8 breeding in her pedigree! On the top side, her pedigree contains our powerful +Miss V8 4/5 cow family. The bottom side contains Maspero breeding with US Sugar Corporation, Imperator, and the V8 “Miss Priss” cow family (through her maternal grandsire Mr. V8 500/3.)

what makes her special?

A living legend on the ranch, her impact has exponentially increased in the past few years as her daughters, granddaughters, and grandsons are entering production. Her flushes to El Rey and 380/6 produced some key donors (like Miss V8 499/7, below) who have done just what we hope for: outproduced themselves, just as their mother has done, here at V8.
