This calculator is to assist beef farmers wishing to purchase a bull through the CAIP Beef Genetic Improvement Program. It is recommended that this calculator be used prior to purchasing the bull to determine if he is eligible for cost-share dollars. First determine what category of bull you are shopping for and the breed that you desire. Make those choices in the pulldown windows below. This will open up the specific EPD or Index (optional) information that needs to be entered. Once you have located a bull you can enter the values in the corresponding boxes. When all information is entered click the Check Eligibility tab. The screen will clearly indicate if the bull qualifies or not. If the bull does not qualify you can easily determine which trait did not meet the guidelines. If the bull does not meet the qualifications, keep shopping and find the bull that is right for your operation!
