Many of our members use their names. This is the name that determines your placement in the membership directory and this is used to sort memberships in alphabetical order by last name.>


This is a unique name in the system. Many members use their ranch name, i.e. A C FARMS. You may also choose to use your membership name. Both the Membership Name and Prefix Name will print on the certificates. This can be 25 characters long, including spaces. A prefix name is NOT Mr., Mrs., Miss, or Ms.


You (member signing up) will be the primary signer. We highly recommend at least one other person to be listed. In the case you are not able to conduct business, the secondary signer would be able to. You may list a spouse, children, ranch manager, etc. Any Junior application must have parents/legal guardians as their designated signers .


The Animal ID Prefix has been established to help recognize and maintain recognition of the original breeder of an animal. Every Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) member must establish an Animal ID Prefix. This prefix must be a minimum of two (2) characters and up to a maximum of eight (8) characters (including spaces). Your Animal ID Prefix can only be a combination of letters and/or numbers, symbols or punctuation are NOT allowed. The Animal ID Prefix will always be associated with an animal’s name, regardless of a name change. The Animal ID Prefix will be unique to each membership. At the time of the animal’s registration, the registry system will automatically prepopulate the animal name with the Animal ID Prefix followed by the animal’s ID number (example: CRO 15/22). At that time of initial entry, you may remove the animal’s ID number and add a name like “Big Red”, but the prefix will always stay at the beginning of the animal’s name (example: CRO Big Red). Please remember that animal names are limited to 30 characters, including the Animal ID prefix. ANY name change after initial entry will incur the appropriate name change fees. .
