Express  Ranches Roll of Victory Breeder of the Year during the American Angus Association's Awards
The Angus breed had many reasons to celebrate legendary progress at the 2021 National Convention and Trade Show, and show ring accomplishments were no exception. The Roll of Victory (ROV) Show Heifer of the Year, ROV Show Bull of the Year and ROV Breeder of the Year were named at the Awards Dinner held at the National Angus Convention and Trade Show on Nov. 7 in Fort Worth, Texas. Angus cattle have a tradition of excellence in the show ring. This history continues in show rings around the country each year. The American Angus Association® offers the ROV Show Program to recognize individual show-winning animals, sires and dams whose progeny excel in the show ring, and the exhibitors themselves.

“We’ve spent the weekend celebrating Angus passion, innovation and achievement, and our ROV winners are a true testament to these priorities for our breeders and showmen,” said Mark McCully, American Angus Association chief executive officer. “It’s evident these cattle are incredibly deserving of this recognition, as are those who dedicated the time and effort to earn these awards.”

The ROV season runs from June 1 through May 31. Points for these shows are accumulated on an annual basis.

The ROV Show Heifer of the Year was Seldom Rest Sandy 9080, owned by Suter Clark, Gretna, Va. The heifer received grand champion honors at the 2021 Western National Angus Futurity, stood reserve grand champion at the 2020 North American International Livestock Expo, reserve intermediate champion heifer at the inaugural Cattlemen’s Congress and champion intermediate heifer at the Dixie National.

The ROV Show Bull of the Year was Silveiras Forbes 8088, owned by Chris & Sharee Sankey, Council Grove, Kan.; Silveira Bros., Madera, Calif.; and Rockin S Ranch Inc., Riverdale, Calif. Silveiras Forbes 8088 was named Grand Champion Bull at the 2021 Western National Angus Futurity and Atlantic National Angus Show. He was also Supreme Champion Open Angus Animal at Atlantic National Angus Show, Grand Champion Bull at Cattlemen’s Congress and Grand Champion Bull at the 2020 Kansas State Fair.

Recognized with top honors as the ROV Breeder of the Year was Express Ranches, Yukon, Okla. The operation won with 751 ROV points, a 227-point margin of victory. Express Ranches has won Breeder of the Year every year since 2012.
