Bull Test Station

We use sophisticated computer programs to determine which Beefbooster bull calves are suitable to be sent to our test station for post-weaning evaluation. Our thorough testing process means you get the best bulls when you buy Beefbooster.

Our test station evaluation criteria include:

  1. Scrotal circumference
  2. Testicular tone and consistency
  3. Back fat
  4. Structural soundness
  5. Semen quality

  1. All bulls are evaluated for comprehensive gain and breeding capacity
  2. Heifer and maternal bulls are tested for 70 days to determine their growth potential
  3. All Beefbooster bulls are tested for 40 days on the Growsafe System for net feed efficiency
