Description: The Alabama Cooperative Extension System is holding a hands-on workshop geared toward purebred beef producers on Friday, May 11, 2018. A Bull Calf Evaluation and Marketing workshop will be held at the Auburn University Beef Teaching Unit in Auburn from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The workshop will teach producers how to evaluate bull calves and how to effectively market these bulls once they have been developed into breeding bulls. The focus of the workshop will be how to evaluate a bull calf's skeletal and foot structure, muscling and reproductive potential. These physical attributes are very important in how long the bull can remain in the herd. Once these physical characteristics have been evaluated and combined with genetic potential indicators, the work of marketing can begin. "It is important producers understand bulls can have different breeding purposes and this affects how they should be marketed," says Dr. Lisa Kriese-Anderson, beef cattle specialist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. Some bulls excel in many areas, such as calving ease, growth and the ability to produce good daughters. Other bulls may excel in only one or two areas. Each quality bull has his place in the breeding herd. Kriese-Anderson also adds "Not all bull calves should be developed as breeding bulls." The Auburn University Beef Teaching Unit is located at 500 Shug Jordan Parkway in Auburn. Please RSVP to Lisa Kriese-Anderson ( or 334-539-2129) by Friday, May 4th.
