Beefmasters in Asia & Europe
By M. Doyle Sanders- BBU International Committee- Vice Chair Asia & Europe
In the September 2019 issue of The Beefmaster Cowman, BBU Staff Member Lance Bauer provided an update titled “Beefmasters Around the Globe” on his travels this year for Beefmasters in Colombia and South Africa, where our breed has been popular for some time. Our breed is also continuing to be strong in Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and other parts of Central and South America.New interests in Cuba, Dominican Republic and Vietnam have also justified private visits by BBU “Go International” breeders within the past couple of years; without United States Livestock Genetics Export (USLGE) support due to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) target country procedures. Since introduction to Thailand during 2010- 2012, they have imported live bulls and females with multiple large shipments of Beefmaster semen with visits being planned for Thai guests in Missouri by the end of 2019. In 2018, Missouri exported almost 100 head of Beefmasters to Thailand.
