The Southwest Bull Development Centre was first established in 1994 by a group of four eager Red Angus Breeders from Southwestern Manitoba - hence the name Southwest

The bulls are fed a ration consisting of 47.5 % Oats, 2.5 % supplement, 50% hay. The cost to leave bulls at BFL is $3.00 per day at Batho Farms Ltd.,
located at Oak Lake, MB. The bulls are fed to gain 3 pounds a day and given an 8 acre paddock the entire time they are being developed at the center.

The first three years the station consisted of Red Angus bulls. The Hereford bulls joined in 1997 and the Black Angus followed in 2000. In 2001, the three breeders amalgamated to run under one executive.

The goal of the Southwest Bull Development Centre is to attempt to grow bulls out into better breeding bulls, rather than fatten them to test solely for maximum gain.
