Summer 2021 Feed Test at Southern Beef Performance Center

 

The Southern Beef Performance Center is located in Williston, FL. Their mission is to promote the seedstock cattle industry by feeding and testing cattle to isolate top performing, efficient genetics. By testing genetic lines for efficiency, seedstock producers can provide data to back their bulls. In an industry measured in pounds of product, there’s little room for uncertainty with genetics. Take the guess work out of how your calf crop will perform and help your bottom dollar.

At the SBPC they have the capability to test 280 head per year, having four regularly scheduled tests a year. Their pens are 150’ x 100’. Each pen can hold up to 35 head, giving each head 425ft² of space & plenty of shade. Their test will be a 70 day gain test with a 21 day diet adaptation period and a cool down period. SBPC has a roughage-based ration that is developed by […]

New Year, New Goals!

 

By: Lance Bauer, Director of Breed Improvement

2020 was a year to remember, or forget, if you would like. Items like toilet paper and meat disappeared from store shelves amid the COVID 19 pandemic. People learned to work from home, and most learned how to use Zoom for teleconference meetings, albeit some are better at it than others. Personally, I am excited that we are in a new year and hopefully we will be able to slowly get back to normal in 2021. One thing that 2020 did show us is how strong and resilient the cattle industry is. Producers kept producing through tough times and sales brought us together during the year. I hope everyone keeps a positive outlook and sets goals for this new year. When making your resolution to go to the gym, or to get organized and drink less; don’t forget your cattle operation. Make sure that […]

Cowart’s Cows

 

Third-generation Florida ranch builds better cows with Beefmaster genetics

Story and photos by Laura Conaway

 

A Beefmaster believer, Walton Cowart needs no convincing.

The third-generation cattleman, near Bunnell, Fla., has seen breed trends come and go; even tried a few himself. Now, with five years of Beefmaster bulls under his belt, he’s found the breed to keep.

The soft-spoken rancher isn’t one to push his opinion on another, though. In a room of opportunity, by choice his voice won’t carry.

“I think riding out here, looking at them says a lot more than I can say,” Cowart says, placing the burden of proof on the cows that graze his land. “Take a look and you’ll see what they [Beefmasters] can do in a cowherd.”

A June afternoon spent doing so reveals the rancher’s modest nature. In the house he designed by hand, overlooking the land he’s managed well, he prefers his successes show off without him.
