†††††††††††† The West Virginia Bull Evaluation Program at Wardensville is a bull development program available to mid-size seedstock breeders in our area.† It is more like an alliance than a typical bull test.† There are no single consignments in this program and several cooperators have 10 or more bulls in the program.† This makes their yearling and ultrasound data more meaningful and useful.


†††††††††††† This program has evolved throughout itís lifetime to best serve the current and future needs of the beef industry.† We have rapidly incorporated emerging technology to evaluate traits of economic significance.† In addition to traditional measures of growth, fertility and body composition, we can now measure individual feed intake and provide insight into each bullís ability to convert feed into marketable product.


†††††††††††† Our cooperators participate in the West Virginia Feedlot and Product Information Program (West Virginiaís Ranch to Rail Program began in 1983) and collect yearling ultrasound body composition data on replacement heifers.†† Our cooperators live and produce in the real world.† The cattle are solid and dependable, but we invite you to evaluate these bulls/cooperators yourself and reach your own conclusions.
