American Gelbvieh Association announces Ring of Gold champions for 2020-21

American Gelbvieh Association
Farm Forum

Throughout the 2020-2021 show year, Gelbvieh and Balancer females and bulls competed at shows across the country to earn points for the American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) Ring of Gold program. Each year, the qualifying animals are ranked at the conclusion of the National Gelbvieh and Balancer show, which took place this year at the inaugural Cattlemen’s Classic held in Oklahoma City, on Jan. 6.

The AGA established the Ring of Gold program to honor the top animals shown at the conclusion of the show year. Points are earned for grand and reserve champions, as well as division champions and reserves, and are based on the actual number of animals shown at each show.

To honor those animals who have risen to the top during the show season, the Ring of Gold awards are presented to the top Gelbvieh female, Gelbvieh bull, Balancer female and Balancer bull based on points awarded throughout the year. Animals must earn points in at least two shows to qualify for Ring of Gold points each year. The 2020-2021 Ring of Gold qualified shows included the American Royal, North American International Livestock Exposition and Cattlemen’s Congress.
