The Indiana Beef Evaluation Program (IBEP) test station was started in November 1976 at the Pioneer Beef Cattle facility in Tipton, Indiana, and later moved to Purdue University's Lynnwood Farm at Carmel. It has been located at FPAC, near Bedford, Indiana, since 1989. It has been said that the IBEP Bull Test Station has done more to improve beef cattle in Southern Indiana than any other one thing.
The test station is governed by a board of directors. Each breed association appoints a member;
the Indiana Beef Cattle Association appoints a representative, and two at-large positions are appointed. Under their direction, the test station has been extremely successful.
