ROCO 333/8 (ABBA Name #SAN JOSE WELLING ROCO TE 333/8) caught our eye when we visited one of the top breeders of Brahman cattle in Mexico, Marco Barba of GANADERIA SAN JOSE. He is a full sibling to a number of champions and we were fortunate enough to purchase him prior to his starting a show career in Mexico. He is a son of the famous JDH WELLINGTON MANSO 527/1. As you know, JDH WELLINGTON MANSO 527/1 semen is not available for sale in the United States, and we believed that this son of 527/1 would make a great addition to our herd as a future herd sire. ROCO 333/8 is a full sibling to the 2019 XXII Exposición Nacional de Ganado Brahman Joven Champion Gray Bull, SJYSCSPR 99/7; also the 2022 Exposición Internacional de Razas Puras, Chiapas Joven Champion Gray Bull and 2022 Exposición Nacional de Ganado Cebú, Guadalajara, Jalisco, México Joven Champion Gray Bull, SAN JOSE .- APACHE FIV 659/0; as well as the 2019 National of Cebu, Tuxtla Gutiérrez Chiapas, México Reserve Ternero Champion Gray Bull, SAN JOSE SAN JOSE WELLING S 326/8, who was also crowned the XXII Exposición Nacional de Ganado Brahman Reserve Adulto Champion Gray Bull in Tampico, Mexico in March of 2019.
ROCO 333/8 trends at the top of the American Brahman Breed EPD's for such important traits as Calving Ease Direct, Birth Weight, Weaning Weight, Yearling Weight, Total Maternal, Calving Ease Maternal, Carcass Weight, Rib Eye Area, and Marbling.
