112-Day Report

Impressive gains and a few pounds difference resulted in a photo finish between the top two indexing bulls in the Angus division. Sanchez Angus' PS Emblazon 1478 edged forward to earn the Top Indexing Angus bull slot for the 2015 Tucumcari Bull Test. With and impressive index of 120 and sustained average daily gain of 4.83, this calf was a force to be reckoned with. Running a close second, was Oklahoma Panhandle State University's bull, PSU Right Time Fline 409. This equally impressive bull, weighing in over 1400 lbs., will add pounds to the weaning pen.
