​Cattlemen's Calendar

Bull owners and county beef cattle groups are encouraged to contact IBEP to volunteer to help on weighdays/workdays shown below. Activities usually begin at 9:00 am. Bring a potential cooperator or bull buyer to give them a first-hand look at the bulls, facilities, and the central testing program.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, although you are welcome to come and view bulls, we ask that you contact the test station in advance (812-279-4330).
