The winners were recognized at Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, Saskatchewan on Friday, November 27. The Canadian Angus Association congratulates the winners and thanks all who participated in the Gold Show program in 2015.
The Gold Show program was developed in 1989 by the Canadian Angus Association to provide an incentive for breeders to move between regions to show cattle. Gold Show winners are determined by the animals that earned the highest number of points in three Gold Shows. If an animal accumulated points in more than three Gold Shows, the points from their best three shows were used in determining end-of-year awards.
