ASA's Ring of Champions Winners Announced
 
ASA's Ring of Champions Winners Announced
 
01 February 2018
The American Simmental Association (ASA) is proud to announce the winners of the inaugural Ring of Champions contest. The Ring of Champions program recognizes cattle that have been consistently successful at ASA's major Progress Through Performance (PTP) shows, reflecting an industry reality where producers routinely balance between phenotypic evaluation and scientifically relevant EPDs and Indexes.
 
The PTP shows included in the Ring of Champions are: the American Royal, Kansas City, MO; North American International Livestock Exposition, Louisville KY; National Western Stock Show, Denver, CO; and Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, Fort Worth, TX.
 
"The lengths these cattlemen go to exhibit and showcase their genetics is truly admirable," says Luke Bowman, ASA's Director of Membership and PTP Operations, "Their skill in the off-season of selecting the appropriate cattle to show, the work behind the scenes to prepare the cattle for their full potential visually, the expense to travel all these distances to compete at the greatest venues while consistently placing at the top is certainly something that should be recognized. We are proud these cattle carry the SimGenetics brand; these represent us all very well."
