It’s a truly beautiful sight to drive across a pasture, close to sunset, and see beautiful Brahman cattle. Here at V8, four generations of our family live a life of blessings that we are thankful for each and every day. We are able to work together, be part of each others daily lives, and use each of our God-given talents for our family’s singular goal of raising exceptional Brahman cattle. Each year, this sale is a highlight for us. We work hard to select females and semen from our top bloodlines, with exceptional quality, that we know can make a difference in other herds. This year, we are very excited to offer carcass ultrasound data on many of the lots. Over the last five years no other breeder has collected data on as many purebred Brahman bulls or females as V8, and we include it to showcase our passion to performance and breed improvement. The V8 brand means a lot to us. And for the last 72 years, it’s grown to mean something to people in the cattle industry, too. When Dadaw, Dad, or Brandon place that V8 on a calf ’s left hip, it represents our family pride, integrity, and love. But it also represents our thankfulness to the many friends and breeders who have made V8 what it is today. It is with great pride that we present this catalog, the cattle in it, and we offer our sincerest best wishes to those reading it. Thank you for your interest. If we can be of assistance, we are here to serve you. - Rachel Cutrer 2

Miss V8 808/6 (especially bred to 194) has the ability to accelerate any Brahman herd to the next level. A beautiful 9 year old cow, in the prime of her life. She is a cow that offers the distinct style for which V8 Ranch is known. Femininity, balance, killer eye appeal, fantastic udder quality, and structural integrity are key features bred into this female for generations - since 1944. She is sired by the 2005 International Grand Champion Bull, +Mr. V8 846/5 “ The Rock” - a beloved V8 sire known for his maternal excellence. 808/6 is the first natural calf out of Miss V8 387/6, who at 12 years old still boasts one of the best udders on V8 Ranch. 387/6 is sired by +JDH Charley’s Jazz 946/1, and out of a (+)JDH Copano Manso 839/9 daughter who’s mother was +Miss V8 617/2. Until recently, +Miss V8 617/2 has been the #1 cow in the register of renown for the last 20+ years, and has had the most profound impact on the V8 Ranch herd over any other cow. Through her progeny she is represented in nearly every animal on the ranch, however it is extremely rare to see her name represented so closely on a 3-generation pedigree. Great genetics here. As you study this female in person, on paper, and through her ancestors, it is clear that she exemplifies Brahman excellence.

This year in Houston, 380 sired all four of the grey division champion females, including the 2016 International Grand Champion and 2015 National Champion Brahman female, Miss V8 21/8. By the end of 2016, 380/6 will rank in the top 10 bulls of the Register of Renown. His semen has set the record for highest selling semen per straw in Brahman history for the past 3 years. 318/7’s dam is the great +Miss V8 188/5, one of the most prolific dams in V8 Ranch history. 188/5 has numerous donor daughters that are in the current V8 Ranch donor lineup, and has produced 2 International Grand Champion females, and a World Brahman Congress Champion female.

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER. Every visitor to the ranch easily identifies Miss V8 805/7 as our best Avery daughter, and one of the best cows on the ranch. Here is her direct daughter. Miss V8 572/7 is a big ribbed female, that offers a lot of capacity and depth. She is long bodied, and stands on a big boned, durable skeleton. She offers a ton of femininity in that she is long and extended out of her neck and head, and very angular in her design. Her large, growth oriented frame, is complemented nicely with her functional, productive design. Success comes naturally for 805 and her offspring. She’s produced several donor daughters and herd sires; 2 International Calf Champion females at Houston. Our top fall born heifer of the 2015 calf crop is an 805 daughter by 259. In the last few calf crops, if you want to find the best calf of the group, you can narrow your search by just looking for 805/6 in the ear tag. 805 blends a unique +Mr. V8 700/3 x Imperator pedigree. No explanation is needed for the sire: +Mr. V8 901/4, an impact sire of the entire Brahman Breed for the last 18 years. 572 is a proven producer - her last heifer calf was a top female of the calf crop and sold for $10,000 in our fall sale to Moon Creek Ranch. Documented, productive functionality plus outstanding carcass traits.

OUR POLLED GENETICS OFFERING This scurred female is moderate framed, deep ribbed, and loaded with capacity in relation to her frame size. She is easy fleshing, and the gentlest cow in the sale.

She is one of the top 5 donors on V8 Ranch for quality and dollars generated. Her first natural calf, Miss V8 274/7 went on to be National Reserve Grand Champion, and is now a leading donor. 797/7’s first flush resulted in 7 calves that have generated over $100,000 in sales and counting. Notable offspring include Mr. V8 135/7 “The Butler”, Mr. V8 139/7, Miss V8 508/7 donor, and the $25,000 high seller in the Houston International Sale, Miss V8 505/7. Later flushes have produced Miss V8 103/8, a division winner at both 2016 Houston and the 2015 National Show, and JDH Lord Vader Manso 892/8, one of Kyle Hudgins’ top herd sire prospects. Miss V8 638/7’s pedigree represents the great 797 cow family but brings in the excellent reputation of Hudgins bloodlines.

AS STUART WATKINS PROVED THIS YEAR...strategic cattle breeders know that sometimes you find great success by taking the old, and making it new again. The Watkins’ family has made a Facebook sensation with their tremendous “Big Shot” daughter, pictured here. For those new in the breed, these bulls may only be names you have only seen way back in pedigrees. Each year, we share semen on a few of the top bulls from each era of V8’s bull battery. Brahman historians know the power of these bulls, and their accolades and accomplishments. Ask James Daniel about these bulls - they were the pride of V8’s during the 1980s. While old, each of these bulls still have the power to be blended with the new to blaze a new trail in Brahman history.

The 380/6 Semen Offering New Format for 2016 Over the past three years, the 380 semen has sold from $2075 increasing to $8025 per straw. When semen is that valuable, we realize that the buyers of this semen are using it in a strategic IVF program. For this reason, this year we are offering three lots of 2 units each on both 380 and 191. This allows more breeders to gain access to our top genetics. The final price of the lot will be the bid price multiplied by TWO (two units).

Our first offering of semen on this young scurred powerhouse. He was the highest performing calf of the entire spring 2014 calf crop, and brings in the powerful 464 cow family with polled genetics. He is seeing heavy use here at the ranch.

A class winner at Houston in 2016 and one of the top bulls of our showstring. Tremendous muscle, breed character, and a candidate to breed red or grey.


B I D D I N G P RO C E D U R E S Go to If you already have a DV account, sign in, go to our sale page and request a bidder number. If you do not have an account, sign up at Initial registration at DV requires you a credit card for verification or a bank reference.


When the sale opens, you can bid anytime throughout the day. The sale closes at 6:00 p.m. CST on September 6. If anyone bids within 5 minutes of 6:00 p.m., 5 more minutes will be added to allow the contending bidder fairness to bid again. This is why the countdown clock may say there is :30 seconds remaining, then jump back up to 5:00 minutes. If you are interested in buying, we suggest being around a computer or phone to bid until at least 7:00 p.m. OR use the proxy bid feature. Don’t forget to REFRESH your screen during this time so that you are seeing the most up-to-date-bid. When the sale closes, DV will send an email to the winning bidder saying they bought the lot.


If you type in a maximum bid, the DV system will automatically increase your bid if someone bids against you, until you reach your maximum bid. If you are bidding on a lot and immediately the DV system comes back that you must bid again, this is a good indication that someone else has placed a proxy bid on that lot. However, if no one else bids, the system does not bid for you (meaning there’s no way you can get “run”). For example, after our first sale, a buyers told us he had placed a proxy bid for $15,000 on a heifer then left for a football game. When the auction closed, he got the heifer for $6000, because no one else bid. Confidence in bidding - When using DV Auction, be assured that your identity, information, and proxy bids are 100% confidential. V8 Ranch takes our integrity very seriously and has full confidence in the DV Auction system.
