COLUMBUS — An Ohio producer was honored with one of the top producer awards at the Beef Improvement Federation Research Symposium and Annual Meeting, April 30-May 3 in Sacramento, Calif.
The Beef Improvement Federation named Champion Hill, Bidwell, Ohio, the 2009 Seedstock Producer of the Year.
Paul Hill and Marshall Reynolds of Champion Hill manage 220 breeding-age registered Angus females and 630 mostly half-blood Angus females used as recipients on 4,000 acres of owned and leased land in southeastern Ohio.
Each year, the operation sells 300 females in two production sales and 200 bulls through a genetic partnership.
Reynolds owned the land and, in 1993, formed Champion Hill, naming Hill as its president.
Their philosophy has always been to breed the kind of cattle that will perform in the showring and make a positive contribution to the beef cattle industry.
The team at Champion Hill has selected females from the top cow families in the Angus breed to use as foundation donor cows to consistently produce the quality of cattle their customers have come to expect.
Champion Hill was nominated for the award by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association.
