The UW-River Falls St. Croix Valley Bull Test and Beef Management Team will be hosting an education program and open house on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The open house will allow producers to preview the bulls for sale as well as provide an educational program addressing topics related to making bull-purchasing decisions.

In addition to the program, consigners of the bull test will also be available for questions. Furthermore, the Mann Valley Farm has recently built a new cattle-handling facility and producers can also view the facility.
The program is free to attend and the UW-River Falls Student Beef Management Team will be providing a beef lunch for $6/person. The open house will be held at the UW-RF Dairy Cattle Learning Center, Mann Valley Farm located 129 South Glover Road, River Falls, Wi.
