Honor roll for Gelbvieh females announced

The American Gelbvieh Association has announced the annual honor roll of Gelbvieh females that meet the qualifications as a Dam of Merit or a Dam of Distinction. The AGA credits the owners and breeders of these outstanding beef females. The Dam of Merit and Dam of Distinction recognition program was started in 1991 to honor top-notch Gelbvieh cows that exhibit consistent maternal efficiency.

The title of Dam of Merit recognizes cows that meet strict selection criteria including early puberty and conception, regular calving intervals, and above-average weaning weights on at least three calves. Of the 41,318 active cows in the Gelbvieh breed, only 5.5 percent qualify for Dam of Merit.

The Dam of Distinction honor recognizes cows that meet the same high standards for superior, long-term productivity with at least eight calves. Just 0.7 percent of all active Gelbvieh cows qualify for this elite group.

"To be the breeder or owner of a Dam of Merit or Dam of Distinction Gelbvieh female is a testament to the emphasis our breeders place on cow productivity," said Susan Willmon, AGA Director of Breed Improvement. "The Gelbvieh breed offers females with the genetics to maintain high maternal productively, which ultimately adds profit for beef producers in terms of more pounds of calf per cow exposed."
