You can utilize a blank ultrasound scan barnsheet linked here or contact the office for pre-filled form for specific calf crops, if desired.
Please take note that all certified CUP labs require a certificate “C” number or performance “P” number on each Beefmaster animal, when submitting scan data to the lab via your ultrasound technician. If scan data is submitted without a “C” or “P” number, the animal’s scan data will be entered as a commercial animal and the breeder will not receive scan data results. Take home message, make sure to register your animals as certified or performance prior to carcass ultrasound scanning.

Beefmaster Calves Born in Turkey!
Fantastic news! We received confirmation that the first Beefmaster purebred calves have arrived on Turkish soil. Late last month, three of the cows that received purebred Beefmaster embryos gave birth and the first calf arrived on July 16, 2022. The female calf was named ‘Caucasian Rose’ and the male calves were named ‘Sarp’ and ‘Anatolia’. With this exciting news, Kafkas University in Turkey has developed the foundation Turkish Beefmaster herd. The Beefmaster embryos were delivered to Kars, Turkey from Texas in January 2021. The Turkish Beefmaster project began back in 2016 and in 2018 the Turkish Red Meat Producers Association board of directors recommended that Beefmaster become the Turkey national beef cattle breed.
