Salers name 'Recognition of Renown' show winners
The American Salers Association Recognition of Renown program is designed to honor those producers making the commitment to display Salers cattle at various livestock shows across the country. Winners are selected on a point system. Points are calculated on individual bulls, females, dams and sires in relation to show placings. In addition to the three constant point shows, the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo., the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Ky., and the National Salers Show in Denver, Colo., other livestock shows meeting the minimum criteria of 30 head also count as point shows. Individual winners were selected on total points. Division winners were selected on division points. Ties were broken on National Show points. To be listed in the top five or a division champion, animals must have shown in two sanctioned shows.
