One of the most important decisions made by a cow calf producer is herd sire selection. The North Carolina Beef Cattle Improvement Program (NC BCIP) bull test sales help make this decision easier. Information generated by the testing program helps producers identify bulls that are genetically superior that should help increase profitability in the herd. Upcoming NC BCIP sales include:
