Welcome to the Angus e-List

Angus Outreach Seminars Planned

Over the next few months, the American Angus Association (AAA) will be holding a series of "Angus Outreach Seminars" across the country. AAA staff members Bill Bowman, director of performance programs, and Matt Perrier, director of commercial programs, will outline two new tools offered to AAA seedstock producers and their bull-buying customers — the Beef Value ($B) index, a value-based tool designed to assist commercial producers in their genetic selection, and AngusSource, an identification and marketing program for Angus-influenced feeder cattle and replacement females.
In addition, breeders will have an opportunity to provide input to AAA staff and Directors during interactive discussions about ways the AAA can best serve members today and in the future.
