Competitiveness of the tests… from our farm tested bulls, to Indiana Bull Evaluation Program, to Werner Feed Efficiency (WFE) test in Iowa, to the 'Granddaddy of all Bull Tests', Midland Bull Test in Montana where our bulls compete with 750 Angus bulls and over 300 bulls from other breeds. The most discriminating cattlemen come to Midland, Werner Feed Efficiency test, and IBEP to pick top performing genetics and structurally sound bulls. Test includes feed efficiency, rate of gain, ultrasound of carcass quality, structural evaluation, and a breeding soundness evaluation (BSE). Check out our bulls on test at each test throughout the year as we update this section for WTR bulls' performance. We are most proud of the 'consistency of performance' from WTR bulls at these competitive test programs.
