2021 LOBBA Heifer Development Program

 

Live Oak Beefmaster Breeders Association (LOBBA) is sponsoring a heifer development program at Landair, Inc., in Beeville, Texas. The purpose of the program is to provide LOBBA members a means to economically feed and grow out heifers in preparation for sale or other private use purposes. The heifers will be grouped by age to form contemporary groups where the cattle can be evaluated, compared and graded according to desired phenotypical look. Scan data and weight gains will be acquired at proper intervals for participating heifers. Note: this is a development program not a gain test. Heifers will be fed accordingly for proper growth and conditioning. Structural defects will be pointed out so that the owner can decide if any action is required regarding their animal. This information and data will be obtained in order to provide the owner the data for performance evaluation and potential sale requirements.

The open heifers will […]

Beefmaster Commits to Sustainability with Efficiency EPDs

 

BOERNE, TEXAS – Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) is pleased to announce the development and release of their Residual Feed Intake (RFI) Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) and Feed Efficiency Index ($FE). Beefmaster breeders and commercial cattlemen now have the most powerful Beefmaster selection tools at their fingertips.

“Both of these efficiency EPDs will assist producers to select animals that are feed efficient and fit into the ever-increasing demand for sustainability in the beef industry,” said Lance Bauer, BBU Director of Breed Improvement.

Residual feed intake is a measure of feed efficiency. RFI is the difference between an animal’s actual intake and expected intake based on size and growth of an animal on a feed test. The new Beefmaster RFI EPD utilizes ultrasound measured rib fat in the calculation to help select for animals that will grow and maintain optimal condition. When examining this EPD it is important to notate that an animal with a lower […]

Texas A&M University Beefmaster Herd Continues to Grow

 

Freezing temperatures and record-breaking snowfall is synonymous with February 2021. It was a turbulent time for everyone, especially cattle producers. Despite the difficulties brought forth by many days living below zero, the Beefmaster herd at Texas A&M University (TAMU) endured the cold and more than tripled in size.

“One of the calves happened to be born during the middle of the ice storm, where it was down to zero and essentially, we couldn’t read a temperature on the calf,” said Jason Cleere, Ph.D., TAMU Associate Professor and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Beef Cattle Specialist. “We had graduate students work to save the calf and it survived. Our students have bonded with our Beefmaster cattle, and they are getting real-world learning experiences.”

In 2019, TAMU launched a purebred Beefmaster herd through donations from several Beefmaster Breeders United members. The donors supplied 15 purebred Beefmaster heifers and purebred Beefmaster embryos to the TAMU […]

Launching Beefmasters in Turkey

 

In early 2021, 67 Beefmaster embryos were successfully exported from Texas for delivery to Kafkas University in Kars, Turkey. These genetics will form the foundation herd to help improve beef production in Turkey and adjacent regions.

“We are excited to participate in the initial use of these embryos to create the first Beefmaster calf herd, to be born next spring in Turkey.” said Collin Osbourn, Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) Executive Vice President.

“The beautiful part about Beefmaster genetics is that you can put them on anything and the result will be an improved product. You can add Beefmaster genetics to it to get the longevity, the structure, the efficiency and it’s going to work within the first year,” said Larry Meacham, BBU President.

If you are a commercial cattleman and/or a Turkish farmer, you simply cannot afford NOT to be crossbreeding. The benefits of a crossbred cow to any commercial herd are undeniable […]
