Research Projects

BBU has (or has had) cooperative research projects in feeding and carcass evaluation with Texas A&M University, Auburn University and Texas Tech University. BBU members also participates in feeding and carcass trials throughout the United States.

Results show purebred and crossbred Beefmaster steers are exceptionally efficient in the feedlot and are producing carcasses that generally fall into the Select and Choice grades. With Select grade beef becoming more popular among consumers, these steers are right in line with consumer demands. On-going studies are identifying genetic lines that excel in feeding and carcass traits.
