Programs

PURPOSE:

     Assist Pennsylvania beef producers in purchasing quality bulls that will enhance the value of feeder steers going to market, as well as replacement heifers added back to their herd.

GOAL:

     Create more marketing opportunities for PA beef producers. It is the plan of the Center for Beef Excellence to improve the quality of feeder cattle in the state to allow them to be better positioned to enter feedlots, which will improve the price producers received for their cattle.

The Bull Credit Program will reimburse Pennsylvania producers $1,000 towards the purchase of a qualifying bull.

Producers must complete an application and follow all program guidelines.

Program Requirements to Qualify for Credit:

  • Must be a Pennsylvania beef producer

  • Bull must be born and raised in Pennsylvania

  • Bull must be entered into the Livestock Evaluation Center's Bull Test Program

  • Bull must qualify for the Livestock Evaluation Center's Bull Test Sale

  • Minimum purchase price of bull must be $2,500

  • Applications MUST be received by January 31, 2020
