    In the Islamic tradition, animals are sometimes sacrificed to honor God by feeding the poor and needy. Bilwani raises cattle specifically for this ceremonial purpose. The higher the quality of the animal offered, the more prestigious the sacrifice. Understandably, Bilwani strives to improve their herd to provide better offerings. Our partnership will aid their mission.

    The premium genetics of V8’s Brahman bulls offer adaptive traits tailored for Pakistan’s extreme climate. Brahmans boast heat tolerance for temperatures over 120°F, resilience to endemic cattle diseases, and efficient conversion of variable local feed sources. Strategic crossbreeding with Brahman semen can reinforce the national herd’s production barriers stemming from heat stress, tropical pathogens, and inconsistent nutrition. V8 aims to bridge crucial gaps in dairy and beef output to enhance food security amid Pakistani agriculture’s climate change struggles.

      In January 2024, the Bilwani family (Saqib and his son Muhammad) visited V8 Ranch to learn about our breeding program and state-of-the-art technologies for enhancing cattle genetics. During their trip, we connected on both a professional and personal level.

        As ranchers ourselves, we understand and respect the deep bonds that all cattle farmers form with their animals. Though our religious backgrounds differ, this shared connection united us. Just as we aim to raise healthy, well-cared-for livestock, so does the Bilwani family. One of Pakistan’s largest associations, the Dairy Agriculture Livestock Farmer Association (DALFA) works toward the same ethical, humane animal husbandry goals. The Bilwani family partners closely with DALFA to carry out best practices for animal welfare in their country. 

        By supplying quality semen from V8 bulls, we look forward to helping Bilwani and other Pakistani cattle breeders produce even better herds. Together, through open and thoughtful collaboration, our joint efforts will benefit cattle farmers and communities in need.

        We are thankful for this partnership and the friendships it has created between our ranch and the Bilwani farm. Despite the geographic distance, we share common values of animal care, environmental stewardship, and a desire to produce nutritious beef to feed families. This trade relationship spans cultures and beliefs to find common ground.
