Went to a sale over the weekend and there were a couple of Red Angus bulls around 16-18 months available for sale. The seller advertised them as gaining 6.5-7.0 lbs/day on a gain test. These bulls were not fat, just average conditioning, some may have even been a little less. They weighed anywhere from 1050 to 1200 lbs at the end of the test. I believe the end weights but I call B.S on the adg. Am I being too critical? Wouldn't these bulls have been fat as butter with gain results like this. Maybe they were as thin as rails before the test started, but if they have gain numbers like this, why would they be that thin to begin with. The sale was in Harrison Arkansas and called the "Ridin' for Reds Sale" in case anyone else was there.
