The bulls at the Western Illinois University Performance bull test will all have individual feed conversion data- we are one of only a few in country who do this!

Approximately 50 of these rugged, thick-made Angus, Simmental, Red Angus, Gelbvieh, Limousin, Charolais and Composite bulls with a lot of capacity and bred-in performance will be offered for sale at the 36th Annual WIU Performance Tested Bull Sale at 7 p.m. Friday, March 19, 2010 at the WIU Livestock Center on Tower Road in Macomb.  Lowderman Auction Service will auctioneer the sale.

Approx. 1/2 hr from Iowa, less than an hour from MO.

All bulls came on test Merial SureHealthTM certified and tested free of Johnes and persistently infected BVD. Extensive production information is available to help breeders improve their herds through known genetic information.  In addition to average daily gain and feed efficiency, data will also be provided on ribeye area, 12th rib fat, marbling, scrotal circumference, pelvic area, frame score and birthweight, plus EPD data from the respective breed associations.  Again this year some bulls will have DNA test data available.  All bulls offered for sale are screened for soundness and will have completed a breeding soundness exam and are ready for the upcoming breeding season.

The WIU bull testing station is open daily for those wanting to view the bulls prior to the sale.  Catalogs will go out to our regular mailing list about March 1.  For more information and a sale catalog, contact me, or PM me... I can help you out..

Or you can visit our website  http://www.wiu.edu/bulltest/

Last year, off the top of my head, all the bulls sold, and averaged around $1300-  We sold bulls into several states, even as far away as Kansas.  

thank you for your time in reading.. hope to be in touch..

We are in process of shearing, torching. and picturing some of the better end bulls... Their sires are listed below..  Also, if more than one son is available, that number follow in ( ).

Sorry, made a mistake.. the bulls I posted were last year's bulls- I copied the wrong excel spreadsheet.. I will make corrections and repost ASAP
