Illinois Performance Tested Bull Sale Catalog online

Posted by John Fulton -

An expanded version of the catalog for the 2009 Illinois Performance Tested Bull Sale has been posted on the web (http://www.IPTBullSale.com), said Dave Seibert, a University of Illinois Extension animal systems educator.

"Besides the pedigree information and EPDs and Accuracies found in the hard copy, which will be out next week, the web version includes pertinent information like Adjusted Birth, Weaning and Yearling Weights, Illinois Heifer Development Program-eligible bulls; and the six-trait Power Score which determines sale order," he said. "In addition, the website contains the registration numbers where producers can link to the breed associations and secure a copy of the performance pedigrees."

The Feb. 19 IPT Bull Sale is the leadoff event for the Illinois Beef Expo held on the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

"There are 117 performance bulls cataloged, including 83 Angus, 33 Simmental, and one Polled Hereford," said Seibert, who is the sale's manager. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Seibert at (309) 694-7501, dseibert@illinois.edu .
