The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has an on-going requirement for livestock. Contracts for these services will be awarded from time to time.
This livestock will be used in research and education. Selection of animals will be based on various characteristics identified by need. Purchases will be made of specific animals meeting the University requirements based on spot market pricing at the time of purchase during the period of July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006.

The State of Illinois has a policy to encourage prospective vendors to hire qualified veterans, minorities, females, persons with disabilities and ex-offenders.
