BBU Standard of Excellence
The Six Essentials are what differentiates Beefmasters from all other beef breeds. The BBU Board of Directors developed a Standard of Excellence brochure to provide a summation of what a Beefmaster should be like physically, as defined within our founding philosophy.

The Six Essentials

Disposition is one of the Six Essentials that the Beefmaster Breed was founded on. Disposition is so important on both the top and bottom side of an animals pedigree. Disposition is not only about easy handling, but studies have shown that cattle with calmer dispositions are more profitable over their lifetime. Which contributes to higher weaning weights and increased conception. Send a picture of your Beefmaster cattle that exhibit great dispositions to jnovak@beefmasters.org!
