Piedmontese is the MYOSTATIN gene Breed - producing higher yield and genetically tender beef in one cross breeding season. NAPA - the largest Piedmontese Cattle Association on the continent - offers animal registry services to Piedmontese breeders across the USA and Canada. Registration of cattle is a very important part of breed improvement, as it allows breeders to keep accurate records of pedigree so that they may make informed selections in breeding programs. Official, independent, third-party pedigree records provide support and verification, and are also then available to affect EPD data for ongoing breed improvement. NAPA hosts an Annual Performance Tested BULL SALE each April & the National Breed Show at Denver's NWSS each January.
