When the venerable Denver National Western Stock Show canceled its annual event for January due to COVID-19 restrictions by the city, Oklahoma City stepped in with the Cattlemen’s Congress. Now all the major breeds of cattle will congregate in Oklahoma City in early January.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd talked with Luke Bowman, director of member events and international operations for the American Simmental Association, about the upcoming show.

The Simmental breeders will gather January 7 and 8 in Oklahoma City and the show will be on the 10th.

We are pretty pumped because of all the leadership and organization that has gone into developing the congress, Bowman said.

We had anointed the National Western as our national show for the 2020-21 season and we wanted to be able to name a national champion, Bowman said as he explained the reasoning behind coming to Oklahoma City.

This seems like a logical choice and it allows us to reach more breeders from the south, Bowman said.

He noted the “perfect Simmental” today looks different than 50 years ago when the breed was established.

One of the five founding tenets of the American Simental Association when they were founded in 1968 is there is no restriction on the percentage of Simmental in the pedigree or color pattern to be registered, so they have changed a lot from even 10 or 15 years, he said.

The ideal Simmental is the modern one that works for the commercial cattleman, Bowman said.

The ASA official said besides the January show, many activities are pending.

We don’t have a lot of stuff planned out long term as our focus now is on Oklahoma City, he said.
