Welcome to BBU!

Beefmaster cattle optimize traits necessary to rebuild the nation’s cow herd because they excel in fertility, docility and longevity. Commercial cattlemen understand the economic advantages that improvements in these traits offer a beef operation. These include, but are not limited to, higher conception rate, more weaned calf per cow and reduced replacement heifer development costs. You will appreciate the high quality females that Beefmaster bulls produce as they will excel in the hot, humid environments of the South to the wet, cool climates up north and everywhere in between.

Efficiency is also a strong attribute of the Beefmaster breed. In a recent all-breeds performance test in Texas, yearling Beefmaster bulls were the highest average daily gain (ADG) on test as well as the lowest residual feed intake (RFI) on test. Beefmaster cattle not only have high daily gains, they also consume less feed per pound of gain. Use of Beefmaster influenced cattle allows you to be a low-cost producer with reduced input levels in the cow/calf enterprise. These cost cutting measures have been built into the Beefmaster influenced female and will be necessary for cow/calf operators to survive in the developing beef industry.

Docility, fertility, efficiency, and longevity are just a few of the traits that Beefmaster cattle offer as you will also appreciate the early growth of these calves. Your weaned calves will have heavy weights at the market place and will have added value in the feedlot segment of the beef industry. Interest in Beefmaster genetics has been extremely good the past several years as the beef industry has seen the positive changes in the cattle recently. If you are looking for Beefmaster cattle don’t hesitate to call 210-732-3132 for additional information.
