Bulls will be penned in downtown Red Cloud
         If you want to see bulls on Main Street and do not want to travel to Pamplona, Spain, you may want to be in Red Cloud on Saturday. No they will not be running down the street - but instead safely confined in pens. The South Central Cattlemen Association is holding their 7th annual Bull Bonanza or "Bulls on Main Street" event that day. Pens of bulls will line the street in front of Kohmetscher Feeds just off Main Street in Red Cloud, featuring consignments of bulls from cattlemen from across the south central Nebraska region. Display times will be from 10:30 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.
The Bull Bonanza will provide an opportunity for area cattlemen to showcase their bulls! It also provides the opportunity for the public and potential bull buyers, from south central Nebraska and beyond, to view a selection of area raised bulls of various breeds and ages. They can also visit with the cattlemen about their breeding and genetics program and their cattle, or perhaps discuss issues concerning the beef industry. Attendees may also register for an array of door prizes to be given away during the day. There will be a lunch available prepared by the Red Cloud FFA Chapter.
