Riga Angus was thrilled to be awarded CHAMPION PEN in the 2013 RASV Heifer Challenge Competition. The RASV Heifer Challenge is a competition designed for stud stock producers to put up a pen of 10 registered heifers suitable as herd replacements. In 2013 some 60 studs of all breeds were judged by a single judging panel consisting of two judges over the eight days of the competition.
The judging criterion was based on: breed characteristics, maternal potential, feet and legs, uniformity, temperament and overall presentation and physical correctness. Following on from winning champion pen in 2013, Riga Angus was selected as a FINALIST in the 2014 and again in the 2015 RASV Heifer Challenge Competition. This was a huge honour as only a select few cattle studs have consistently been placed in the ‘Top 10’.
