Brahman Herd

Bonchasse Land & Cattle Co., LLC (“Bonchasse”) strives to pair the best sires and dams in pursuit of producing the most ideal offspring. Since 1996, we have purchased, bred, and utilized some of the most elite and noted genetics in the Brahman breed. We strive to produce the “right kind” of cattle that are structurally sound, moderate-framed, deep-ribbed, and heavy-muscled with noted pedigree and leading EPD performance.

If you are in the market for leading genetics that have passed the strictest requirements and backed by some of the Brahman breed’s most proven and popular genetics give us a call!

Our herd sires include +Mr. V8 789/4, JDH Sir Abbott Manso 38/5, JDH Mr. Southern Manso 998/1, and MSP Esto Imperator 402/1.  In addition to these service sires we use a number of different proven sires in our AI & IVF programs.

+MR. V8 789/4

+Mr. V8 789/4, formerly a V8 Ranch show bull and six-time Grand Champion for Atwood-Wells Ranch, has sired over 70 show ring point earners in ABBA Approved Shows achieving him the coveted Register of Renown status. Equally impressive, in the area of performance, he is an ABBA Sire Summary multiple trait leader for growth and carcass and is an own son of the immortal (+) JDH Charley Manso 590/6 who was a maternal cornerstone siring more Maternal Merit Females than any other bull in the breed. The dam of 789/4 was a top revenue generator at V8 Ranch, producing multiple champions. She came from one of the winningest cow families in V8 Ranch history generating more than $750,000 in progeny sales. Due to his eye appeal, show ring winnings, performance, and pedigree he has been used in over 25 of the most elite Brahman herds in the United States siring over 200 progeny.
