Upcoming Show Schedule:

Females and bulls with seventy five (75.0%) percent to one hundred (100%) Gelbvieh will continue to be eligible for the Gelbvieh division within AGA sanctioned shows. Such percentages are strictly in reference to cattle qualified to exhibit in the Gelbvieh division and not to be confused with AGA breed registration designations.

To qualify for the Balancer® Show all cattle must meet the American Gelbvieh Association’s Balancer trademark rules for registration as a Balancer. Any Gelbvieh female or bull that meets or exceeds seventy five (75.0%) Gelbvieh or more that also qualifies for the Balancer® trademark may choose to show as Gelbvieh or Balancer at the time of entry. Such animals may only show in one division. No changes can be made after entry deadline.
