PA Performance Tested Buck Sale

The annual Pennsylvania Performance Tested Buck (and Ram) Sale and Invitational Doe (and Ewe) Sale will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2011, at the Livestock Evaluation Center in PA Furnace, PA.

An index is used to rank the bucks and determine sale order.  The bucks are evaluated for average daily gain, lifetime weight per day of age, muscling, and fat thickness.  Approximately the top 75 percent of each breed or breed group will sell.

While on test, the bucks have free-choice access to a commercial concentrate diet (min. 16% protein) and a grass-alfalfa mixed hay.
