Association Recognizes ROV Winners
The American Angus Association honored the show bull, show heifer and breeder of the year at Awards Breakfast.
SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. (Nov. 10, 2015) — The American Angus Association recognized top performers in its Roll of Victory (ROV) Show Program during its Awards Recognition Breakfast hosted Nov. 5 in conjunction with the 2015 National Angus Convention & Trade Show in Overland Park, Kan. Recognized at the breakfast were:
- Express Angus Ranches, Yukon, Okla., ROV Breeder of the Year;
- EXAR First Advance 5702B, ROV Show Bull of the Year; and
- Champion Hill Georgina 8547, ROV Show Heifer of the Year.
The ROV program recognizes the individual show-winning animals and the sires and dams of major award winners on an annual, current-year basis. Points are not accumulated from year to year.
Points are awarded according to placings and are accumulated throughout the course of the show year, which for the 2014-2015 ROV sho program ended May 31, 2015. An animal’s highest two point earnings in super-point shows and highest two point earnings in recognized point shows are totaled to establish the Show Bull and Show Heifer of the Year, as well as division champion awards. If an animal is shown at more than two super-point shows, the points from the third and fourth super-point shows can be given at a regular point level.
EXAR First Advance 5702B won Show Bull of the Year, earning 90 points during the 2014-2015 show year. The September 2012 son of Dameron First Class is owned by Express Angus Ranches, Yukon, Okla.; and the Schnoor Sisters, Chowchilla, Calif.
Winning Show Heifer of the Year, with 75 points, was Champion Hill Georgina 8547, a November 2013 daughter of SAV Angus Valley 1867, owned by David Smith, Boulder, Colo.
Dameron First Class won Sire of the Year honors with 1,473.5 points. The April 2008 son of EXG RS First Rate S903 R3 is owned by Express Angus Ranches and Dameron Angus Farm, Lexington, Ill.
While awards for Show Heifer, Show Bull and Breeder of the Year were presented at the national Angus convention in Overland Park, other award winners will be recognized at the National Angus Show to be convened at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo., in January 2016.
