Mr. V8 979/8 “Checkmate,” sired by +Mr. V8 146/8 “Sloan” and out of a top daughter of +Mr. V8 380/6, emerges from the respected Marri Holly cow family at V8 Ranch. Characterized by his dark pigmentation and heavy muscle, Checkmate exemplifies the eye appeal and balance bred into the V8 lineage for over 75 years, boasting a strong, level topline alongside plenty of meat and muscle. His pedigree combines the best of Sloan and 380, resulting in a bull with both show ring success, including being Reserve Division Champion at the National Show two years running, and the flexibility as an unrestricted sire, offering breeders the chance to enhance their herds with top-tier genetics.
