Bull Testing Program

The Bull Test Station is operated by the Middle Tennessee Research & Education Center in cooperation with the Tennessee Extension.  Data on individual bulls will be available prior to the sale, and prospective buyers may view bulls at the annual Open House, as well as on a video that will be made available across the state during the sale so that prospective buyers need not travel to Spring Hill for the actual sale. 

Purpose of the Bull Testing Station: (a)  To provide a standard, impartial post-weaning gain test that will furnish records which will be useful to the consignor in his breeding program; (b) To provide a source of and market for completely performance tested bulls; and (c) To serve as an educational tool to beef cattle improvement and promotion.
