Beefmaster Breeders


Isa Beefmasters
Isa Beefmasters is the 4th generation of the Lasater family developing high-performance Beefmaster genetics in West Texas near San Angelo.

The Beefmaster breed was founded by company president Lorenzo Lasater’s grandfather in 1937. Beefmasters are a composite breed made up of roughly one-half Bos Taurus (Hereford and Shorthorn) and one-half Bos Indicus (Nelore from Brazil, Gir and Guzerat from India). Eighty-plus years of intense, yet balanced selection for economi­cally important traits has created a homozygous beef breed with the explosive growth potential of a hybrid.

The company specializes in high-performance Beefmaster genetics for grass-based beef cattle producers. We sell 200 bulls annually, with a 150 head auction the first Saturday each October (2021 marks our 60th sale!) and 50 bulls private treaty each spring. Additionally, we offer select groups of females throughout the year as well as semen and embryos from the L Bar herd. The L Bar brand was first registered in South Texas in 1890.

Genomics

THE GGPP 50K is a new generation genomic profiler. Over 10 years of genomics research is distilled in the new GGP 50K. Detects gene markers that have the greatest influence on economically important traits and the most impact on key traits that cattle inherit from their parents. Designed for Bos Taurus and Bos Indicus influenced cattle.

  • Modern Predictions. The GGP 50K enters the market just as breed associations are adopting “single step” genomic predictions, which benefit from the added genomic information.
  • Smart Design. Unique measurement of density, spacing and information content from single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) along key regions of all 30 cattle chromosomes.
  • Value Add-Ons. Contains over 100 “causative” markers for a variety of economically relevant genetic conditions.
  • Global Parentage Traits. Uses all USDA and globally recognized ISAG parentage markers for Bos Taurus and Bos Indicus cattle.

THE GGP HD-150K  The most powerful commercial seedstock profiler ever.

Up to 150,000 genetic markers are built into the GGP HD-150K. This is the new gold standard of the Industry.

  • The GGP HD -150K provides more extensive data than any other commercial profiler. The result is a higher accuracy you can use for Elite animals.
  • Unique Content. Working with researchers globally, we include the most impactful new markers for cattle performance, reproduction and progeny. The GGP HD-150K detects gene variations that are not revealed by other products.
  • Elite Animals. Researchers will use this technology to test training populations and design new tests for the future.

Genetic Health and Conditions

To save you time, GGP profiles are also designed to detect many genetic conditions. The GGP HD 150K comes with built-in detections of many genetic abnormalities and conditions in breeding cattle, including:

  • MAN
  • CHO
  • Coat Color Dilution (DL)
  • Development Duplication (DD)
  • Dun (DN)
  • Hypotrychosis (HY)
  • Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE)
  • Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH)
  • Osteopetrosis (OS)
  • Pulmonary Hypoplasia with Anasarca (PHA)
  • Tibal Hemimelia (TH)

Parentage Verification

The GGP HD 150K contains all of the globally recognized USDA parentage markers. Using this standard, any breed of animal tested will be eligible for consideration as a parent or progeny.

The GGP HD 150K uses tens of thousands more markers than any other test.

Using the active genes plus denser coverage translates into more Power to predict cattle and progeny performance. All Power Source Genetic Alliance Herd Sires and Donors are GGP HD 150k tested to give our customers that Power to build their herds with confidence.
