COLUMBUS, Ohio — A strong drive, determination and competitive spirit play a major role in the Angus breed, and this is reflected in show rings around the country each year. The American Angus Association® offers their Roll of Victory Show Program to recognize show-winning animals and their sires and dams.
Exceptional Angus cattle and their breeders/owners who were winners during the 2017-2018 show season were recognized at the 2018 Angus Convention Nov. 5 in Columbus, Ohio.
“ROV winning cattle are some of the top cattle in the industry,” said Allen Moczygemba, Association CEO. “They set the pace for the breed and the type of bulls and females Angus breeders will be seeking to purchase in the coming months.”
The ROV season runs from June 1 through May 31 and consists of 19 shows. Points for these shows are accumulated on an annual basis.
- The ROV Show Heifer of the Year was EXAR Princess 6680; owned by Carter Ward, Plattsburg, Mo.
- The ROV Show Bull of the Year was SCC Tradition of 24; owned by Cade Stertzbach, Louisville, Ohio; David Smith, Boulder, Colo.; and Massie Creek Cattle, Cedarville, Ohio.
- Recognized with top honors as the ROV Breeder of the Year was Express Ranches, Yukon, Okla.
