Help Support CattleToday:



Here are bull test links: Bull Development Center at Washington, TX <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> Ohio State University Bull Test <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> Oklahoma State University <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> (click on bull reports) And some info on buying bulls: The Angus Assn. has a Bull buying strategies publication: <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> And <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> (Bull Selection101) There's a lot of info for producers at the OK State Extension site.

Hope these are helpful...

Buy the breeder, not the breed. Every study that I've seen has found that reproductive efficiency is multiple times more important to the cow/calf producers bottom line than growth or carcass traits. If you are building a herd(I assume from progeny, which is what I would do),you can't neglect the maternal traits of the bull you buy. "Buy yuor bulls from someone who raises cattle the way you ought to."--Kit Pharo; <A HREF="" TARGET="_blank"></A> Just for balance to Frankie's sites, go to Kit's newsletters and read through some of them. Good luck.
