Tru-Test Angus Bull Unit Update

Tru-Test Angus Bull Unit Update

All 28 yearling bulls held at the Tru-Test Angus Bull Unit are now on farm, which is located on Milson Line, Feilding. On Monday 5th December, all the bulls were re-tagged and given a bull unit number by Kim Lowe from Zee Tags. They were also weighed by Paul Gilligan of Tru-Test, and Jo Scott from Zoetis took the tissue samples for the i50K testing at the same time. We’d like to thanks these sponsors for their ongoing support of the project.

The average weight of the 28 bulls on Monday 5th was 582 kgs, ranging from 471 kgs up to 674 kgs. This range is party due to the range in birth dates across the bulls.

An open day will be held at the bull unit on 21st March 2017 at 11am.

All bulls will be auctioned at the Beef Expo Angus National Sale at Manfeild Stadium in Feilding on Tuesday 16th May 2017.
