The UT Bull Testing Station is jointly sponsored by UT Extension, UT AgResearch, and the Tennessee Beef Cattle Improvement Association.
- Provides a standard, impartial post-weaning gain test that furnishes records useful to the consignor in his breeding program;
- Provides a source of and market for completely performance-tested bulls; and
- Serves as an educational tool for beef cattle improvement and promotion.
The Bull Test Station is located at the Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center at Spring Hill and in cooperation with 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.
