Enter your best bull and heifer calves in a performance tested competition against some of the best producers in the United States and Canada.

Bull calves are delivered to the host ranch and will go through a grass test and then on to a feed test. Scoring will be based on incoming weight, grass gain, feed gain, overall gain and live judging. The top third scoring bulls will be offered for sale at the Black Hills Buffalo Classic Auction in February 2019. Entry fee is $1200 per animal.
Heifer calves are delivered to the host ranch and will be on a basic grass test for most of the competition period. The heifers will finish out on a short pasture/self-feeder test to put a little bloom on them for the auction! Scoring will be based on incoming weight, grass gain, feed test gain and live judging. The top scoring heifers will be offered for sale at the Black Hills Buffalo Classic Auction in February 2019. Entry fee is $875 per animal.
