The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association bull and heifer evaluation program serves the needs of both the cattle seedstock producers and producers with commercial cow-calf herds. The program, which has been in place since 1985, provides seedstock producers comparison and bench marking information. The cow-calf producer benefits include access to superior genetics for their herd to enhance their bottom line.
Bulls and replacement heifers must meet strict selection criteria to be eligible for one of three ICA sales held across the state. The criteria are determined by ICA's Production Efficiency Committee, which is made up of all current consignors to the program. The top 75% of the evaluated bulls and replacement heifers in each breed that meet the criteria earn ICA's 'Symbol of Excellence' and are sold at the sales.
