218 is definitely the Queen of the ranch. She was the 2008 ABBA Show Cow of the Year, is in the Register of Renown and won 2007 All American Grand Champion Bred and Owned Female. Her dam is +BNA Miss Nel Manso 234/9 who we bought at a sale at South Texas State Fair in 1999 from Barney and Lanelle Allen, who we became very good friends with. We showed her every weekend for a year and half, winning Grand Champion almost every time. Known as “Big Sue”, she is the cornerstone of our breeding program. She produced Miss BER 203 who was Grand Champion Bred and Owned and Reserve Grand at 2004 All American. Queenie also raised Miss BER Princess 277 who won 2011 San Antonio Livestock Show Reserve Grand Champion. She produced Miss BER Duchess 310 who won 2014 Kickoff Classic Reserve Grand and Kickoff Classic Junior Show Reserve Grand. Duchess produced Miss BER Olivia 492 who won 2017 Louisiana State Fair Reserve Grand and 2017 Jambalaya Classic Reserve Grand Junior Show. She also produced Miss BER 491 who won 2018 Dixie National Reserve Grand Female. These heifers are out of her first ET babies. We are looking forward to seeing more calves out of her.
