The sale has offered some of the best genetics based on performance standards utilized by the beef industry. During the past 49 years 4,690 bulls have sold through the sale for over $8.5 million. This year’s sale is set for Thursday, February 22 on the Illinois State Fair Grounds in Springfield, though it is possible to bid remotely.
