Declining slightly from #5 to #8, BRC’s Mr. V8 794/7 (P) is deceased, and his semen is not typically offered to the United States breeders, and on a limited basis internationally. He tremendously popular worldwide sire as many breeders like his frame size, power, performance, red tinge color, and fertility. 794 is a proven producer of championship cattle in the USA and is a solid go-to when you want the best in polled Brahman genetics.
9. BRC Yetistone 588/8
A new bull on the list for 2021, YetiStone is one of three sons of Boom Shaka Laka on the list, and sired by V8 Ranch’s “Yeti” bull, Mr. V8 933/7. YetiStone is a very good dispositioned, moderate framed, heavy boned Brahman AI sire who was introduced in 2021 and widely accepted. He saw natural service at the JB Show Cattle / Braman ranch in the summer 2021 and should produce some outstanding calves from that program.
10. BRC Boomtown 372/8
Rounding out the list, and moving down from #4 in the 2020 report is Boomtown, the full brother to Dutton. Even at the #10 spot, he has sold over 2500 units of semen, and has been very popular in both the USA for a low birthweight calving ease sire, and internationally. This is another great example of a moderate framed, outstanding young Brahman sire with lots of natural muscle and perfect structure.
