The Midwest BueLingo Association (MBCA) is an organization that was formed in 1999, when a group of BueLingo breeders noticed a concentration of BueLingo cattle in the Midwest (especially in MN, IA, IL and WI). The group started meeting and sharing information with each other and the public on BueLingo cattle. Informational exhibits have been displayed at Wisconsin Farm Tech Days, the WI and MN Beef Expos, National FFA Conventions, and at county fairs where animals have been shown.

We have been involved in steer feedlot tests, the latest one being done at UW River Falls, which consisted of steers fed on corn vs. fed on grass. We are a very hands-on group who are gathering information on genetics, feed conversion and carcass data. 

We also continue to expand ways of marketing cattle as a group. Joining the MBCA allows you to be involved with a great group of people who have an interest in the BueLingo breed.

The MBCA is an organization that supports and enhances the National BueLingo Beef Cattle Society.  The National BBCS is responsible for all registration and record keeping as well as “The BueLingo World” magazine. You do not need to be a member of the National to be a member of the Midwest, but you do need to be a member of the National to register and transfer cattle without paying the extra fees.
