The Fall 2018 Genetic Evaluation is available online
This Genetic Evaluation represents part of a comprehensive breed-wide genetic evaluation program available to breeders of Beefmaster cattle. This program provides genetic values in the form of Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) for all animals — male and female — recorded on the BBU database with performance records of their own or progeny with performance records. This Genetic Evaluation contains bulls which have produced progeny with at least one weaning weight record. EPDs for all other animals included in the evaluation - such as cows with performance progeny or non—parent animals with performance records — are available from the BBU office and via the EPD search on the BBU website.

Beefmaster Cross Females Take Top Honors at State Fair of Texas!

If you haven’t heard the latest buzz., you’re missing out on the craze! Two Beefmaster cross females exhibited by two Junior Beefmaster Breeders Association members claimed top honors at this year’s State Fair of Texas in Dallas, Texas.

Shawn Skaggs of DeLeon, Texas took the Grand Champion American Registered Breeds (ARB) honors at the State Fair of Texas with his Beefmaster cross heifer, WR Rosie. The female was sired by Skagg’s Beefmaster herd sire, Cash Advance. The dam was a commercial Angus cow.

Braylee Mackie of Lott, Texas also took turned heads with her Beefmaster cross female, Bar B Honey. She is out of Pump Daddy, a composite club calf sire and by a Beefmaster dam. She claimed the Reserve Senior Division Champion honors.

Beefmasters ... Proven success in and out of the show ring. Congratulations to both JBBA members on their big wins with their Beefmaster crossed females!
