Beefmaster Bulls Included in Integrity Beef Alliance Program

Boerne, Texas  Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Integrity Beef Alliance. In December 2017 Beefmaster bulls became the most recent bull breed approved by the Integrity Beef’s board of directors for inclusion in the program. Beefmaster bulls are the newest addition to the program and join the already approved bull breeds of Angus, Charolais, Hereford and Red Angus.

 

“This past year has been an excellent year of growth for the Integrity Beef Alliance, both in participation numbers, but also marketing opportunities for members,” says Executive Director of Integrity Beef Dr. Robert Wells. “Additionally, Alliance leadership has taken numerous steps to further guarantee the future success of the program. Some of the changes that have been made are inclusion of more approved bull breeds.”

 

Established in 2000 by the Noble Research Institute (formerly the Noble Foundation), Integrity Beef is the culmination of best management practices developed by Noble’s agricultural consultants and recommended to producers who participate in the organization’s no-cost consultation program. Integrity Beef is a comprehensive beef production system that produces the highest quality calves possible for the next supply chain owner and the consumer, while improving returns for ranchers through value added traits.

 

Integrity Beef emphasizes progressive management methods, ranch stewardship and humane care of all livestock. Integrity Beef includes a terminal production system that uses a value added, preconditioning program. Through uniform and elevated standard management practices, Integrity Beef producers’ cattle far surpass industry standards for performance, quality, health and behavior.

 

Beefmasters are a strong compliment to the well thought out Integrity Beef program. Adding value and increasing efficiency at every turn is what Integrity Beef strives for and Beefmasters will help in those regards.

 

“As a piece of the Integrity Beef maternal equation, Beefmasters will capitalize on heterosis, maximize terminal crossbreeding, increase value adding selection tools and solidify commercial genomics,” says Vice President of Marketing and Research Bill Pendergrass. “All of these steps increase efficiency for the rancher, feeder, packer and ultimately the consumer, while also securing our ranches for the next generation of cattlemen and women.”

 

If you are a Beefmaster breeder interested in participating in the Integrity Beef Program the requirements for inclusion are as follows: for the terminal program, bulls must be in the top 20% of the breed for weaning weight (WW) and yearling weight (YW) at time of purchase by the member owner. For the replacement female program, the bull the replacement is bred to for the first calf must be in the top 20% of the breed for calving ease direct (CED), WW and YW. For those who wish to become a member of Integrity Beef, there are other requirements that must be met depending on which program a person is interested in. Please refer to www.integritybeef.org for more requirement details. For more information about joining the Integrity Beef Alliance, please contact Robert Wells at integritybeef@noble.org or 580.224.6430.

Beefmaster Announces Changes to its Organizational Leadership Team

Boerne, Texas – The Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) Board of Directors held a meeting on Jan., 4 in San Antonio Texas. During the meeting the board approved a restructure to the organizational leadership within BBU. The restructure appointed Collin Osbourn as the Executive Vice President and Bill Pendergrass as the Vice President of Marketing and Research.

 

“These changes in staff leadership come after several months of discussion among the board members and staff. Unfortunately, Bill Pendergrass suffered a stroke in August 2017 and this limited his ability to serve in full capacity in his previous role as Executive Vice President,” says BBU President Steve Carpenter. “Bill expressed his concern of not meeting the demands of the job and prompted the need for restructure within BBU leadership.”

 

Lance Bauer was also assigned by the Executive Vice President to serve as the Director of Breed Improvement and Western Field Representative. All other organizational staff members will remain in their current leadership roles. The communications and international teams will be housed under the Marketing and Research department, reporting to Bill Pendergrass. The field representative team will be housed under the Breed Improvement department, reporting to Lance Bauer. The DNA and registration team will report to Office Manager Donna Henderson. The Junior Beefmaster Breeders Association and membership teams will report directly to Collin Osbourn.

 

“This restructure has created a team that is going to be better for the membership and will push the association to the next level,” says Carpenter. “Staff, BBU members, directors and officers are all essential to this team. Each person is important to the success of the breed and we need to pull together to move forward. Team Beefmaster is an unstoppable force and Beefmasters will become the American breed of choice.”

 

For more information or to contact the BBU staff members call the office at 210-732-3132 or visit www.beefmasters.org.

Junior Beefmaster Breeders Excel at Annual Live Oak Bull Sale

Boerne, Texas – Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) is comprised of satellite organizations and marketing groups that host Beefmaster cattle sales throughout the year, among many other events. One of the satellites, the Live Oak Beefmaster Breeders Association (LOBBA), held their premier annual bull sale on Saturday, Jan., 6 at the Live Oak County Fairgrounds in Three Rivers, Texas. This sale is the longest running sale in the Southwest, offering high quality Beefmaster bulls to commercial and purebred cattlemen and women. This year 104 lots were offered, which included Beefmaster bulls from Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Louisiana. Several international buyers were present and purchased quality Beefmaster bulls. The Live Oak Bull Sale grossed $587,050 and the average was $5,645 per head. The two high selling bulls sold for $30,000 each.

All bulls were graded on phenotypic make-up by a select panel of graders. Prize money was awarded to the top ten grading bulls. Placing in the top 25 were two active Junior Beefmaster Breeders Association (JBBA) members. JBBA secretary Emily Martin of New Ulm, Texas sold the 5th place bull which sold for $30,000. JBBA member Cayden Carpenter of Tecumseh, Okla., also had a top placing bull. His bull placed 22nd and sold for $4,500. Emily’s two-year-old bull, ENM Future Info 1115 was one of the two high selling bulls at this year’s LOBBA sale.

“JBBA offers young people the opportunity to improve the Beefmaster breed,” said JBBA adult volunteers Casey Ballard and Darrell Glaser. “Through technological advances like AI, embryo transfer and carcass ultrasound, their cattle are quickly improving. Young breeders recognize the direction the breed is headed and they are leading the way.”

JBBA was founded in 1984 and is one of the fastest growing junior beef breed associations in the country. There are approximately 700 active JBBA members. JBBA members gain valuable knowledge about every phase of the cattle business and become better prepared to contribute to the beef cattle industry and agribusiness as adults through their involvement in the program.

The phase one goal of the campaign was to secure $1 million in pledges, which may be paid over five years, at the time of the public launching of the campaign.

 

“We have now already made history with over $1 million having been committed at the launch of the campaign today and that the committee is now moving forward to the phase two goal of $2 million in 2018,” said co-chair Bob Siddons.

 

Co-chair Mackie Bounds informed the attendees that with a permanent endowment in place — the Foundation will fund educational and breed specific scientific research from the earnings from the endowments corpus leaving donated monies in perpetuity. He also announced that anyone donating to the campaign in 2017 will be recognized as a Foundation “Founding Member”.

 

All new foundation campaign donors and those who may have increased their respective pledges will be formally recognized each year at BBU’s convention and throughout the year. Furthermore, it should be noted that all donations to B.E.E.F. are fully tax-deductible as provided by law.
