Welcome to the University of Nebraska Bull Sale website sponsored by the Beef Cattle Merchandising class taught each spring in the Animal Science Department. Students in this class get hands-on experience in advertising, catalog preparation, data collection and the management of a seedstock bull sale. The 180 cow NU Beef Teaching herd located on the Ag Research and Development Center (ARDC) near Mead, Nebraska supplies the bulls and data for the class. Thought leading beef cattle breeders and other experts are invited to speak to our students throughout the spring semester.
