High-Producing Cows of All Breeds

CIAQ Trophy

High-Producing Cows of All Breeds

At the breed associations' annual general meetings, CIAQ presented the owners of those cows with the highest combined BCA's for 2009 with a plate to honour their animals' performances. To be eligible, the cows must have been sired by CIAQ sires and their owners must reside in Québec. This year, the winners were not only high-producing cows, but they also were long-time high-producing cows! Indeed, the Holstein and Brown Swiss winners totalled many lactations.
