Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex Hosts 53rd Annual Angus Breeder's Show
Chatham, VA-- One event in Pittsylvania County this weekend drew hundreds of people to the area and had hotels sold out.
The Virginia Angus Breeder's Show was in town at the Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex in Chatham.This is the competition's 53rd year. It's a chance for angus breeders from across the state to show off how well-bred their cattle are. This year they had 130 participants competing for the title of Supreme Champion. Sunday was the junior showcase.
Organizers said it's about rewarding breeders for their work, but it can also be a learning experience.
"It's a good way to market your cattle. It's a good way to find out are you breeding the best your can breed, is someone breeding a little better. But a lot of it is about pride and prestige," said Chris Wojo, Show Chairman for the Virginia Angus Breeder's Show.
The grand champion winner got a silk banner and of course, bragging rights.
