What Makes Her Special
617 was Sloan Williams' gift to Rachel when she was born to start her Brahman herd. He and Nana's generosity to our family and our ranch is something we will always treasure and be grateful for. Without his love and mentoring, we wouldn't be where we are.
As if the above isn’t special enough, +Miss V8 617/2 spent more than 20 years as the #1 cow in the ABBA Register of Renown. That's legendary Brahman showman Dave Sagebiel on the halter of 617 in 1982.
