Croissant Red Angus Herd Health

The health plan at Croissant Red Angus was developed to ensure healthy animals, not only here but at our customers' ranch.  It is our goal to not only provide genetics that work, but also bulls and females that can go directly to work for you.  In 2006, we became a certified BVD PI free herd with the Colorado Veterinary Diagnostics Lab.  Continual testing will ensure our customers some of the healthiest animals that are in the marketplace.

Our complete herd health plan can be seen below.  If there are other health requirements needed for shipping, arrangements will be made to accommodate them.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
