Dear Friends:

We invite you to join us on Saturday, December 9 at noon at the Culpeper Agricultural Enterprises as we host the 66th Annual Culpeper Senior Bull Sale. We would like to thank Steve and Blake Hopkins at Riverview Farms for their excellent care and management of the bulls, and their investment and engagement with BCIA. Please join us at Riverview Farms’ bull development facility outside Louisa for the Open House which will be held on Sunday December 3, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. This will be an excellent time to view the bulls and visit with the breeders and everyone involved. We hope you can join us! The Culpeper Senior program is the oldest, most continuously operated bull test program in the nation. This does not happen by accident. The BCIA breeders continue to be committed to the principles that have been at work for over six decades- providing high quality genetics that work, and standing behind the product produced. We had incredible interest in the Culpeper program this year- with over 160 bulls evaluated. Only the top half will be sold! This is an outstanding set of bulls! Study their pedigrees, performance, and phenotype and we think you will agree. There is no time like the present to invest in quality genetics that will move your herd forward! If you cannot join us in person, the sale will be available online through LiveAuctions.tv. Complimenting this, video is available on all the bulls which can be accessed on the BCIA website. As always, we will have bidding available over the telo-auction or feel free to give one of us a call if you need assistance prior to or on sale day. We would be happy to assist you any way we can to secure a bull that meets your needs. All bulls selling have passed a complete breeding soundness exam, including semen evaluation, as specified by the Society for Theriogenology. Volume buyer discounts are available with the purchase of three or more bulls. All bulls sell with the BCIA enhanced guarantee, which provides assurance for soundness and fertility. Again this year, we will provide complimentary delivery for bulls following the sale. Feel free to stop by Riverview Farms near Louisa any time to view the bulls. Contact any of the consignors, Steve 540-205 7798 or Blake 540-223-1886 at Riverview Farms, or myself at 540-231-9159 if we can be of assistance in any way. We hope to see you on Saturday, December 9!


Scott P. Greiner BCIA Educational Advisor
