We are very proud to have had 100 L Bar cows receive the coveted BBU Pacesetter award. This means that she calved at least by 30 months of age, she had at least three consecutive calves with a weaning ratio of 105 or better AND maintained a calving interval of 375 days or less.
BBU publishes the trait leaders for each of the EPDs, and there are 42 L Bar bulls or sons of L Bar bulls that are trait leaders in the Beefmaster breed. That is an unprecedented 40% of all trait leaders for the entire breed—more than any other breeding establishment! We are also the proud producer of L Bar 5502, the only three-time leader in the Beefmaster breed, topping the charts in weaning weight, yearling weight and scrotal circumference EPDs.

"I am a young cattle farmer (with 50 head of Nguni breed). I am based in Eastern Cape, South Africa. I read recently from a farmers' weekly magazine of a young Nguni breeder in the Western Cape, South Africa. He attributes his success in cattle farming from the teaching he has learned from reading your book, The Lasater Philosophy of Cattle Raising."
