Blazed faces and white flanks bombarded Stadium Arena this morning during the Simmental Female Show. Judge, Jim Ligon, and Associate Judge, Gregg Upchurch, consistently evaluated the Simmentals with a strong emphasis on data. They selected Sarah Sullivan of Dunlap, Iowa, as the Grand Champion Percentage Female. Justin Johnson of Paola, Kansas, was selected as the Grand Champion Percentage Bull. The judges used the same evaluation priorities when they selected the yearling heifer exhibited by Rocking P Livestock of Maysville, Kentucky, as the Grand Champion Purebred Simmental Female. Jason Elmore of Waukomis, Oklahoma, was selected as the Grand Champion Purebred Simmental Bull.
Additionally, the American Simmental Association recognized Hudson Pines Farm of Tarrytown, New York, as the Premier Exhibitor and the Premier Breeder.
Congratulations to all of the exhibitors!
