SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture will auction performance-tested bulls at the Junior Bull Test Sale on March 12.

The sale will take place at noon at the Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center in Spring Hill.

All bulls to be auctioned have recently passed the performance test, which measures weight gain, frame score and breeding soundness.

The high-gaining bull, an Angus consigned by Bandy Acres Farm in Irvington, Kentucky, put on an average of 6.29 pounds per day, finishing with a yearling weight of 1,423 pounds.

While the sale features mostly purebred Angus bulls, some Gelbvieh (GELP’-fee), Hereford and Simmental bulls will also be sold.
