URBANA -- 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
"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.
