The international marketing of the Beefmaster breed is a high priority to Beefmaster Breeders United. We continue to work daily to expand Beefmaster markets and open new markets around the globe. We work with the U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, Inc. (USLGE) to match international producers with sources in the United States that offer superior Beefmaster genetics with superior credentials. A majority of our Beefmaster sales offer online bidding through, which is a great resource for international breeders to purchase United States Beefmaster genetics.
