Champions were crowned in Kansas City. The Roll of Victory (ROV) Breeder of the Year, the ROV Show Heifer of the Year and Show Bull of the Year were named at the 137th Annual Angus Meeting on Nov. 8 in Kansas City, Missouri. Angus cattle have a tradition of excellence in the show ring, and this history continues in show rings around the country each year. The American Angus Association® offers the ROV Show Program to recognize show-winning animals, their sires, dams, breeders and owners during the 2019-2020 show season.
"To be recognized as an ROV winner is a true testament to an Angus breeder's success and commitment to the breed," said Mark McCully, American Angus Association CEO. "There is an incredible amount of time, passion and dedication that is put toward earning an award like this. There is no question that these cattle stand out among the rest and are incredibly deserving of this honor."
The ROV season runs from June 1 through May 31 and consists of 19 shows. Points for these shows are accumulated on an annual basis.
