Bull test station holding open house

If you want a sneak peek at this year’s crop of bulls that will be up for sale later this month from the Rainy River District Bull Test Station, you should check out its annual open house Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Charolais, Simmental, Hereford, Angus, and Gelbvieh are the five breeds that will be on display at the open house, both from local and U.S. producers.
