The 80th performance test of the Indiana Beef Evaluation Program finished September 25, 2017 at the Feldun-Purdue Ag Center in Bedford. A total of 68 bulls from seven breeds completed the test. The bulls were entered by 33 seedstock producers from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Bulls were fed a moderate-energy ration during the 125-day test and daily gain for the entire group was 3.64 lbs. The bulls are in ideal body condition for use this fall or next spring.
If you are a new farmer or considering the idea, you are invited to register for the Beginning Farmer East Regional Workshop!
