WOW! A great day was held at Irwinville earlier this week at the Tifton Bull Evaluation Center 54th Annual Sale! A new sale average record was set as one hundred three (103) bulls totaled $312,400 for an average of $3,033. They sold to 73 buyers from three states: Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. Hereford bull, Lot 197, topped this year’s test and also topped the sale at $11,500. The prices remained steady throughout the afternoon with the last bull that walked through the sale ring, also a Hereford, selling for $2,200. The last 10 ten bulls to sell averaged $2,230.
