2025 Plans Underway

New division added to 2025 Denver

Colorado Simmental Association will hold a new Simmental Division in the 2025 National Western Stock Show’s Simmental bull pen show in Denver.

The new division, called Phenotype & Genotype (P&G) will be in ADDITION to the standard Purebred and Percentage Simmental pen shows at the National Western Stock Show.

The objective of adding the Phenotype & Genotype (P&G) Purebred Bull Pen Show is to create another avenue for exhibitors at the National Western Stock Show Simmental Pen Show, said CSA President Willie Altenburg of Fort Collins. “With the increased use of Expected Progeny Differences by cattleman, this new division would provide an educational opportunity to highlight and learn about the value of EPDs as well as the Economic Selection Indexes as a part of the Seedstock selection process. ”

In its inaugural year, the P&G division will be limited to Purebred Simmental Pen of 3 classes. Animals entered in the P&G division will be evaluated by a separate judge & associate judge under a system that combines assessment of the bulls' genotypes, which include EPDs & $Values, and phenotypes. Phenotype and genotype judging will be equally weighted at 50 percent.
