About the Breeding Program
The objective of the breeding program is to produce structurally sound, functional
cattle with the genetic merit to meet the needs of all segments of the beef industry
and be in demand by other breeders. Expected progeny differences from National Cattle
Evaluations and visual evaluation of economically important traits are used in tandem
with pedigree evaluation to select beef cattle to meet this objective.
The OSU breeding program has earned nation-wide acceptance as a source of genetically
superior seedstock. Each year, through national sales and the annual Cowboy Classic
production sale, which is hosted at the headquarters in April, OSU merchandises seedstock
to other registered herds and range bulls to commercial cattlemen from Oklahoma and
around the country.
