ABOUT THE CANADIAN GELBVIEH ASSOC

The Canadian Gelbvieh (pronounced Gelp-fee, German meaning "yellow cow") Association (CGA) is a non-profit, member regulated organization, dedicated to the promotion and improvement of Gelbvieh cattle.

The Association was founded in 1972, and is incorporated under the rules and regulations of the Animal Pedigree Act (1988), which all breeders of registered Gelbvieh animals must comply.

The Herdbook is maintained in conjunction with the Performance Registry Database which is utilized for the production of International Gelbvieh EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences).

WHY GELBVIEH?

Gelbvieh cattle are well-balanced, long-bodied and well-fleshed beef production units. The meat carries well down the hind quarters of these moderately framed animals. Gelbvieh cattle have strong, well-placed limbs which stand on dark, hard hooves. While originally a horned, light brown, totally pigmented animal, through selective upgrading programs, Gelbvieh producers have also introduced polled and black genetics into the breed.

Through performance measurement, genetic selection, and appropriate management techniques, Gelbvieh producers, both purebred & commercial, strive to exceed consumer expectations for delicious beef products. Gelbvieh have a high rate of gain with one of the best feed efficiencies in the industry and will supply the carcass that today's packers and consumers demand.
