Illinois Angus Junior Receives Outstanding Leadership Award

The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) recognizes one of its young leaders each year by presenting the Jim Baldridge Outstanding Leadership Award at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). Awarded during the NJAS closing ceremonies July 14 in Des Moines, Iowa, this year’s recipient is Keegan Cassady of Normal, Ill.

“To me, one of the most important things about being a leader is leading by example,” Cassady said. “I try to lead by example by being very involved in all of the contests at junior nationals, being a respectful competitor and a team player.”

Entering her sophomore year at Oklahoma State University (OSU), Cassady is studying animal science with a business option. As part of the award, she will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship.

Each year the outstanding NJAA member is recognized for contributions to Angus organizations, personal Angus accomplishments, and community involvement and achievements. In 2014, the award was titled the Jim Baldridge Outstanding Leadership Award, in memory of a lifetime of service to the Angus breed.

“Our many thanks to Bill and Betty Werner for their generous gift of $50,000, which in 2013 established a permanent endowment in memory of Jim Baldridge,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president.

Texas Couple Posthumously Inducted
into Honorary Angus Foundation

The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) recently recognized the late Terry and Pam Bailey, High Roller Angus, Center, Texas, as the newest inductees into the Honorary Angus Foundation at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Des Moines, Iowa.

The Baileys were still fairly new to the Angus business, but had already started making a difference through their support for the Angus Foundation’s youth, education and research efforts.

“Terry and Pam were interested in helping the Angus Foundation from the start,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “We were honored that they chose to give to the Angus Foundation, and they will be missed.”

Tragically, Terry and Pam were lost in an accident on Feb. 15, 2017.

The Baileys founded High Roller Angus with operating partner James Butler. Terry always told his children, Dustin Bailey and Carmen Mackey, that he wanted to leave a legacy asset for them and his grandchildren. The Angus business provided potential for unlimited growth. Terry and Butler invested millions in Angus cattle while acquiring thousands of acres in East Texas with goals to grow one of the largest and most genetically elite Angus herds in the United States.

Missourians Urged to Report Drought Conditions

University of Missouri (MU) Extension climatologist Pat Guinan urges Missourians to report the impact of drought in their areas to the Drought Impact Reporter (DIR) at

The National Drought Mitigation Center,, works to inform the public about drought planning, mitigation and response, he says. It also helps decision-makers identify and reduce vulnerability to drought.

Input from citizens statewide helps decision-makers gain a more complete and accurate portrayal of the location and severity of drought in each state and region. “Nobody knows a drought better than the person living in it,” Guinan says.

Examples of drought impact include crop and forage damage, livestock stress, low water in streams, ponds, lakes or public water supplies, and burn bans or water restrictions set by public officials.

The Drought Monitor map at is based on measurements of climatic, hydrologic and soil conditions as well as reported impacts and observations from hundreds of contributors across the country, including people who participate in the Drought Impact Reporter. A dozen individuals from partner organizations take turns serving as the lead author for the Drought Monitor map each week.
