Wyoming Premium Heifer Program

This joint venture between the University of Wyoming's Department of Animal Science, the Wyoming Business Council's Agribusiness Division, and the Wyoming Stock Growers Association is designed with the sole intent of creating an expanded marketing opportunity for commercial heifers, both replacement and bred. The program, cattle listings, and special sales will be promoted through industry publication across the country. The program's intent is to develop heifers according to the guidelines set forth that will provide a valuable product to the replacement market. Therefore, our objectives are:

  1. To increase the education and awareness of heifer development practices that will result in optimum reproductive efficiency of mature cows.
  2. To add value, promote and increase nationally the marketing opportunities for Wyoming produced heifers.
  3. To increase opportunities for beef producers nationally, to purchase the quality beef replacement females that are produced in Wyoming and under the protocol of this program.
