New Reproductive EPDs

 

By Lance Bauer, Director of Breed Improvement

Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) is releasing new reproductive Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs).

Beefmasters are known for being a maternal breed and these new EPD tools will help us to select for more maternal animals. The first new Beefmaster EPD is Age at First Calf and the second new EPD is Stayability. Age at First Calf (AFC) is for heifers and Stayability (STAY) is a lifetime measurement.

Age at First Calf is defined as the difference between a heifer’s birthdate and the birthdate of her first calf. When looking at this number, a lower number is more favorable indicating that a heifer is having her calf at a younger age. Contemporary groups for this are broken by utilizing yearling weight groups and the service type with a 120-day calving window. This helps to separate animals that are bred to calve at 24 months from those bred to […]

Oklahoma State Builds Beefmaster Research Herd

 

BOERNE, TEXAS – Oklahoma State University (OSU) Department of Animal and Food Sciences in Stillwater, Oklahoma is initiating a new research cow herd and they are using Beefmaster genetics as their crossbreeding tool. The research effort, led by Dr. Ryan Reuter, will focus on precision ranching for improved long-term sustainability of ranches in Oklahoma and the Southern Plains.

“Our research will focus on incorporating cutting-edge technology such as automated supplementation equipment, on-animal sensors to monitor behavior and stress, and virtual fencing. This technology will allow real-time decision making and better implementation of best management practices. We need a base herd of approximately 70 cows to conduct this research effectively and sustain our research into the future,” said Reuter, Beef Range Nutrition Associate Professor.

OSU is in the process of building a commercial cow herd to facilitate this exciting research. They currently have cows of predominately Angus breeding and will incorporate Beefmaster genetics […]

Animal Name Change FAQ

So, you have purchased an animal with no name or you would like to change the name, so what do you do now?

To change a name on an animal, the office must receive written permission from the Breeder-Member-First Owner that is listed on the Certificate of Breeding in order to make the name change. Our rules state, that an animal has a name if there is anything listed in the “Named” section of the certificate, this includes an ID number. The fee to change an animal name for an animal with NO PROGENY is $20. The fee to change an animal name for an animal WITH PROGENY is $100. The best and most efficient way to change the name of an animal is for the member requesting the name change to directly contact the Breeder-Member-First Owner and obtain the written/emailed permission from them. Once the written/emailed permission is obtained, the […]
