UW-River Falls to host open house for St. Croix Valley Bull Test in March

February 26, 2016

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Department of Animal and Food Science, St. Croix Valley Bull Test, UW-River Falls Beef Management Team and UW-Extension will host an educational program and open house on Saturday, March 12, at the UW-River Falls Dairy Learning Center on the Mann Valley Farm, 129 South Glover Road, River Falls. As beef producers approach this spring and consider purchasing a replacement bull, this program will help in the decision-making process.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The program runs from 10 a.m. to noon and will feature two presentations related to purchasing a bull:

  • EPD 101 – What do all these numbers mean and how do I use them in selection?
  • What visually should I consider when selecting a bull?

Following the presentations, the UW-River Falls Beef Management Team will offer lunch for $6 per person.
After lunch, attendees will be able to preview the bulls for the sale. Consignors will also be available to answer questions.
