Fertile, Maternal, and Functional


Circle F Farms has been built on superior females and proven cow families. Our initial female purchases were from the legendary V8 and J.D. Hudgins Ranches with many of the cows roaming our pastures today being flushmates to their champions and popular donors. Although we run close to 300 Registered Brahman cows we are very selective when assembling our donor roster with an emphasis placed on quality and production. Our donors are selected based on their production, pedigree, and phenotype. Not only is it important that these females are eye appealing with proven pedigrees, but they must produce. Only after a female has calved regularly twice and weaned a heavy calf of superior quality will we consider her to be a donor. It is our obligation to our customers and the beef industry that we breed functional, efficient and productive cattle. For us to meet this obligation we must use the most proven and elite females in the breed.


JDH Miss Rancho Manso 372/8

ABBA Number: 915514

View Pedigree
This elite young donor was one of our top picks in the purchase of the Fall 2012 Heifer Crop from J.D. Hudgins, Inc. She combines one of the most maternally oriented pedigrees in the breed consisting of 4 Vanguard and 1 Maternal Performance Sire. The influence of her pedigree, her own performance and that of her offspring validate that she is truly a “curve bender” being low birth weight and high growth only adding to her versatility in the herd. JDH Lady Rancho is sired by the National & International Champion and leading sire of champions for J.D. Hudgins and breeders around the world, +JDH Woodson De Manso 206/7. The dam to 372/8 combines two of the proven maternal lines of J.D. Hudgins, Inc. combining +JDH Lawford Manso & (+)JDH Datapack Manso. We are extremely excited about the versatility of JDH Miss Rancho Manso 372/8 and what she can add to our program and ultimately the breed.


Miss V8 69/8

ABBA Number: 925753 

View Pedigree
Brahman enthusiasts will read the pedigree of this top young donor and realize that she is a full sister to the National Champion and two time International Champion Miss V8 21/8 “Boom Shakalaka”. We were extremely excited to be able to purchase two females of this same mating from V8 Ranch. Not only is Miss V8 69/8 a full sister to what could be one of the greatest females in the breed but she is a daughter of +Mr. V8 380/6 who produced more champions than any other bull from 2011-2016 and out of +Miss V8 382/7 the 2013 International Champion Grey Female. There simply is not a pedigree that combines more purple banner winners, as confirmed with 10 Register of Renowns, than this one. There is no question that we like cattle that have showring appeal but understand that our cattle must meet the expectations of our customers. Miss V8 69/8 certainly doesn’t miss the mark as she ranks in the Top 1/3 of the breed for 10 traits! We think this female has the potential to be one of the “matriarchs” of our program.
