Illinois Angus Farm Recognized for Historic Angus Herd

Deno Buralli and his father started their herd at Thread and Gage County Farm in Spring Grove, Ill., in 1967 after purchasing the farm, which they named after their family’s manufacturing business. The American Angus Association is proud to recognize the Thread and Gage County Farm herd as a recipient of the Historic Angus Herd Award as a way to showcase their commitment to the Angus breed. This award is presented to active Angus breeders and immediate family members who have been in continuous production of registered Angus cattle for 50 years or more.

The Burallis purchased eight registered bred heifers in September 1967 from Ed Manning’s Red Top Farms Ltd. at Libertyville, Ill. The heifers had predominantly Scotch-based pedigrees, and several were daughters of Manning’s Perth Champion bulls Elation of Eastfield and Burger of Classlochie. Their first herd bull was a son of his Perth Champion Electo of Haymount. Additional cows were purchased from Lakewood Farms in Mukwonago, Wis., and from Harrer’s Green Meadow Ranch at Helena, Mont., in 1970.

“We have maintained a closed herd since we purchased additional cows in 1970 with only one purchased female added in the past 47 years,” Deno said.

NFU Commences 116th Anniversary Convention

On March 4 National Farmers Union (NFU) officially convened its 116th Anniversary Convention in Kansas City, Mo. More than 450 Farmers Union members from across the country are gathered for the annual event, which runs through March 6.

“As a family-farmer-driven organization, NFU’s convention is the organization’s most important event of the year. It’s an opportunity to celebrate what makes Farmers Union truly unique — and that is family farmers of all types, sizes, ethnicities, regions and religions banding together to make sure they all can enjoy the American dream,” said NFU President Roger Johnson.

Over the next several days, attendees will engage with industry experts, policymakers, thought leaders and fellow farmers on topics of vital importance to family farm agriculture. Top of mind for most attendees and speakers are the severely depressed farm economy, negotiations on the upcoming Farm Bill, extreme consolidation in the agricultural sector, and the success of the next generation of family farmers.

The information learned will provide context for the organization’s annual line-by-line policy review by Farmers Union delegates in the final days of the convention.
