We are excited to feature 542/8 as one of our "Young Guns" of the BRC program. Backed by a tremendous pedigree of the great cross of Noble x 380, his dam is a former National Grand Champion Female, Miss V8 626/7 who was the female that Sloan Williams gave Mollie as a gift to start her herd when she was just a baby.
As you would expect 542/8 is a powerhouse. Performance speaking, he ranks in the top 1% of the Brahman breed for weaning weight, yearling weight, and tenderness. He also is in the top 3% of the breed for carcass weight and ribeye area - all super economically relevant traits that matter to real world cattlemen.
From a visual standpoint, we love his uniform grey color, lots of natural muscling, structural correctness, and wide base. He also carries that with a very clean sheath, and good Brahman breed character.
542 will see his first natural service in summer 2020 as an 18 month old bull, and will be collected in the fall of 2020.
