Top Dams of Merit AND Dams of Distinction!

Proud to once again, receive Dam of Merit and Dam of Distinction awards.In September of 2023, Davidson Gelbvieh was, once again, recognized by the Canadian Gelbvieh Association (CGA) as the owner of 31 GELBVIEH COWS exhibiting the consistent maternal efficiency typical of "The Continental Breed of Choice". The CGA has designated these outstanding beef females as Dam of Merit and Dam of Distinction.

The title "Dam of Merit" recognizes cows that meet strict selection criteria including early puberty and conception, regular calving intervals, and above-average weaning weights on at least three calves. Of the 4,893 active cows in the Gelbvieh breed, only 4.9 percent qualify for Dam of Merit. The "Dam of Distinction" honour recognizes cows that meet the same high standards for superior, long-term productivity with at least eight calves. Just 0.9 percent of all active Gelbvieh cows qualify for this elite group. Davidson Gelbvieh is proud to lead the Gelbvieh industry as the 2023 "No. 1 Owner".
