BOERNE, Texas – On Saturday, March 9 Caeden Scherer, a sixteen-year-old from Brenham, Texas, exhibited his Grand Champion Beefmaster heifer “BeBe” and claimed not only American Division Champion at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Junior Breeding Heifer Show, but won Supreme Reserve Grand Champion Junior Breeding Heifer. The champions were selected from more than 2,000 head of cattle and exhibitors at the 2019 show.

Today’s seedstock producers face the daunting task of organizing massive amounts of data from veterinary records, animal marketing reports, as well as collection and sales of semen and embryos.
While many purebred producers utilize spreadsheets and custom-designed computer software, this approach may not work for breeders with small herds.
Craig Bieber runs Bieber Red Angus Ranch near Leola, South Dakota. Lorenzo Lasater raises Isa Beefmaster cattle outside San Angelo, Texas. Jonathan Perry, general manager of Deer Valley Farm, raises Angus cattle near Fayetteville, Tennessee.
These producers share the filing systems that work for them, the various paperwork challenges they have faced and advice for other producers.
Q. How do you keep veterinary health records, sales and other information organized?
Bieber: We think electronically is the best way. We scan everything but keep and […]

Last month I wrote about breeding with a purpose, and I think that in order to breed with a purpose it is vital to understand the purpose of the Seedstock or Purebred industry. While it is nice to sell bulls for $20,000 and females for $10,000, the purpose of the Seedstock industry is not that, it is to produce cattle that will help the commercial producer become more profitable in what they do. Whether it is a small producer that just sells calves by the pound at the local auction barn or a large producer that sells pot loads of steers or even retains ownership of the cattle. Seedstock producers need to know their target audience and produce a product that will help the bottom line of their commercial customers.
A Seedstock producer needs to be in touch with the commercial […]

It’s the front end of 2019 and by now most people have either stuck with their New Year’s Resolution or it was abandoned by the second week in January. I didn’t make a resolution this year, instead I was encouraged to come up with a word for the year. I decided that the word I would use is “purpose”. Purpose is a word that makes you stop and think about why you are doing what you are doing. Whenever I do something, I ask myself why and find the reason for that activity, granted some activities have the sole purpose of just allowing me to relax. I think that purpose is something you need to have when breeding cattle, from a broad sense, all the way down to making breeding decisions. I feel that my purpose for this breed is […]
Proving to be a success in its inaugural year, JBBA is continuing its stock show exhibitor outreach promotion. We will be including a JBBA brochure along with breeder/company ads and promotional items in a JBBA bag that will be passed out at major stock shows beginning in January at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Each exhibitor that exits the showring will be given a JBBA goodie bag. These bags will touch many hands including parents, Ag teachers, 4-H leaders, etc., which all equates to potential Beefmaster buyers. JBBA’s outreach promotion is a great marketing opportunity for Beefmaster breeders and any agriculture-driven entity. The advertising exposure is endless. Promotional items may be included with the purchase of any ad size. Items may include koozies, notepads, pens/pencils, key chains, cups, business cards, etc. (limit of two per ad). If you are interested in including promotional items only, a standalone marketing opportunity is […]

As we get set to wrap up 2018 the Beefmaster office kicks into high gear. Between the last few sales and events of the year, the registrations and transfers and then the 2019 member renewals and dam inventories it has the staff working at a gallop. One thing is for sure though, we have a great crew that can handle the fast pace and get your work done!
In the past year BBU has made an investment in new technologies and programs that have allowed us to better service our members, give members better access to the registry system and improved turn around times for processing work. We have added to our field staff to better serve membership out in the field and added a JBBA program director to better facilitate our junior members and help grow their programs and events. With these investments come additional […]
