University of Tennessee Heifer Development Program

The Beefmaster breed has a tremendous opportunity approaching. The University of Tennessee Heifer Development Program is opening its doors to the breed with the chance to have a Beefmaster section. If they receive 50 head of females, they will allow the breed to have their own section included with a Beefmaster clean-up sire.

The program is designed to develop females over 10 months. Included in the program is weight and ultrasound measurements, along with two rounds of AI. For a flat fee, the producer drops off weaned females and gets to pick up confirmed bred heifers to take home or consign them in their annual commercial female sale.

Registered and commercial females are both welcome in the program, just be sure to denote that you want them bred to a Beefmaster bull! For more information contact Dusty Pendergrass at 210-464-0923 or dpendergrass@beefmasters.org. Or visit their website at utbfc.utk.edu/BHDProgram.html
