September 24 - 25, 2023 || 79 CATTLE PRODUCTION SALE

Location: Jourdanton, TX | Sale ends at 7 PM CST on September 25

The 79 Herd highlights impressive Brahman cattle purchased from the V8 Ranch, which have highly sought-after pedigrees. The foundation on which 79 Cattle Company is based includes bloodlines from The Machine (380/6) and Noble (458/7), along with some JD Hudgins bulls and the great V8 cows. We are proud to be able to continue these lineages.

The 79 Cattle Co. is a family owned and operated registered Brahman breeder with their headquarters in Jourdanton, Texas, about 35 miles south of San Antonio. Including a ranch in Tilden, where the Wheeler family continues a four generation cattle legacy. Each member of the family shares their individual talents, as we continue to learn from one another, collectively working towards the goal of building on the strong Brahman cattle genetics.

The 79 Cattle Co. headquarters are located in Jourdanton Tx. The ranch consists of gentle rolling hills of coastal and Tifton Bermuda grass accompanied by pretty oak trees. A little place in South Texas we call heaven.
