Become Part of Angus History

Now’s your chance to support the future of the Angus breed through youth, education and research while also being a part of Angus history and a permanent display at the American Angus Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo.

The new walkway at the Association headquarters is a stunning entrance to the heart of the Angus business. The walkway includes customized granite pavers that will forever display Angus supporters’ devotion to the Angus breed.

You can obtain a granite paver through an unrestricted, tax-deductible donation to the Angus Foundation. Two sizes are available to choose from: 6 in. by 12 in. granite pavers and 12 in. by 12 in. granite pavers. A limited number of both sizes are still available and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis with payment.

You’ll want to act now, as the “Building an Angus Legacy” pavers will only be available until April 1. More information is available online.

Cattlemen Applaud Re-establishment
of Congressional Beef Caucus

At a Capitol Hill news conference March 29, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) applauded the re-establishment of the bipartisan Congressional Beef Caucus. The Beef Caucus will organize and educate members of Congress and their staff on policy issues that impact America’s cattle and beef producers.

The Congressional Beef Caucus will be co-chaired by U.S. Reps. Henry Cuellar (D-28th District, Texas) and Kevin Yoder (R-3rd District, Kansas,) who joined NCBA at the news conference. The Beef Caucus currently stands 35 members of Congress strong, hailing from 21 different states.

“On behalf of America’s cattlemen and women, I want to thank Congressmen Cuellar, Yoder and every other member who has already joined the Congressional Beef Caucus — and I’d encourage every other member of Congress to join today,” said NCBA President Craig Uden, a fourth-generation cattleman from Nebraska.

Conservation Stewardship Program Contracts

Acting Deputy Agriculture Secretary Michael Young announced that a contract renewal sign-up is underway for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), USDA’s largest working lands conservation program with more than 80 million acres enrolled. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) made several updates to the popular program last fall.

These changes help producers better evaluate conservation options that benefit their operations while improving the health and productivity of private and Tribal working lands.

“The changes made to CSP are providing even greater opportunities for stewardship-minded producers across the country to participate and bring their conservation efforts to a higher level,” said Young. “The new tools and methods for evaluating operations, expanded options to address the producer’s conservation and business objectives, and the focus on local resource priorities have resulted in a 30% increase in applications for this widely popular program.”
