ASA names 2009 Performance Breeder of the Year
The American Salers Association recently announced the performance breeders of the year for spring 2009.
This special recognition is given to Salers producers who go above and beyond the ordinary in collecting and reporting performance data inputs. In addition to the standard birth, weaning and yearling information, points are allocated for further performance records including cow weights, hip heights, body condition scores and udder scores. Points are all based on the active herd inventory as submitted by March 31 each year by the breeder.
The American Salers Association congratulates the following Spring 2009 winners.
