The ABBA Performance Tested Bull Program concluded its 120-day gain test on Thursday, September 14. Forty bulls were weighed and scored for disposition. In addition, a panel of commercial cattlemen organized by the extension agency were assembled and judged the bulls on their structure.
The bulls will be fertility-tested on October 11 and will then be ranked based on a variety of important traits.
Approximately 30 of these bulls will be offered for sale on cattleinmotion.com October 24-26.
Buyers will have all the information gathered during the test including ultrasound measurements (REA, IMF, Rump Fat and Back Fat), start weight, finish weight, average daily gain, frame score, scrotal circumference and DNA Panel results from NeoGen GeneSeek.
