The West Virginia Young Sire Evaluation Program at Wardensville Bull Test Station is a bull development program available to mid-size seedstock breeders in WV and the surrounding area. It operates 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 its 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 bull’s ability to convert feed into marketable product.
Many of the consignors have participated in the West Virginia Feedlot and Product Information Program (West Virginia’s Ranch to Rail Program began in 1983) and collect yearling ultrasound body composition data on their replacement heifers. Our consignors 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.
