84-Day Report

Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

For 50 years the Tucumcari Bull Test has been the locomotive of opportunity for producers in the Southern Plains and Southwest to make genetic improvements to their cowherd and calf crop. Just evaluate the consistent performance within the top sire groups to realize how these types of bulls can transmit positive change to a cowherd. Across all breeds the bulls are gaining 4.11 pounds per day through 84-days.

EPDs and video clips on each bull will be available on the program website the first week of March. We will also mail DVDs of these videos upon request.

56-Day Report

Entering our 50th year, it is a pleasure to provide you with this performance update for the bulls after 56-d on test. This year's test has brought together 96 bulls from 15 seedstock producers originating from diverse production environments in the Southwest. Through 56-d, the bulls are cranking on all cylinders and averaging 3.75 pounds of gain per day. This set of bulls is undoubtedly the best set we have had the chance to evaluate in quite some time. Many of the sires represented in this year's test are leaders within their respective breeds, demonstrating the commitment our cooperators have to provide both the seedstock and commercial industry with the most sought after genetics. I challenge you to Google the sire's represented to truly understand the caliber of bulls we have on test this year.
