About the Test

Dear Cattle Producers

Dear Cattle Producer,

Welcome to the 2017 St. Croix Valley Bull Test. At our 34th annual sale, we are proud to offer you an outstanding group of performance tested Black Angus, Simmental, Normande, Hereford, Red Angus and South Devon herd bulls. The bulls in this test represent the “best of the best” from top herds across Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. All bulls have been ration tested, ultrasounded and fertility checked to provide you the information you need to select your future herd sire. The bulls are fed a high forage diet that allows them to express their true genetic potential. A diet of this type, combined with a good health program and genetically superior cattle assures you that a bull from SCVBT will add value to your herd.

Thank You for your interest in our bull test! We look forward to serving your genetic needs now and in the future.
