Weights & Measures Overview

This is a simple, fast and effective performance testing program developed by BBU for use by its members. It includes computer analysis and printout of 205-day adjusted weight, 365-day adjusted weight, and sire and dam summaries. Information from the program is used in BBU's Sire Summary which is published twice a year. The Sire Summary includes EPDs for birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight, scrotum circumference and maternal traits. Interim or non-parent EPDs are available on young animals not included in the Sire Summary. Since the early 1990s, participation in Weights & Measures has increased significantly, greatly increasing the amount and accuracy of performance information available both to breeders and buyers of Beefmasters.

BBU's Pacesetter Award is based on information taken from the Weights & Measures Program. This award recognizes bulls and females which have produced top performing calves. This award is designated on the animal's certificate of breeding with one asterisk (*) For more information and details, contact the BBU office for a current Sire Summary.
