ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Angus Foundation kicked off 2022 with outstanding support in the month of January. In addition to the sale of the 2022 Angus Foundation Heifer Package and hosting the second annual Oklahoma Stars event, four heifer pregnancies were sold to support the Angus Foundation. Featured in sales hosted at the Cattlemen’s Congress in Oklahoma City and the National Western Stock Show in Denver, the pregnancies raised a combined $56,500 to benefit the Angus Fund, which provides unrestricted support allowing the Angus Foundation to fulfill its mission of youth, education and research.
“The sale of these pregnancies will make a long-lasting impact within the Angus breed,” said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director. “The generosity of these donors, buyers, bidders and sale managers has helped ensure new opportunities for the future.”
The Angus Fund allows the Angus Foundation to support a diverse set of efforts focused on advancing the breed and providing enriching experiences to youth. Academic scholarships, leadership conferences, cutting-edge research and funding for the National Junior Angus Board are among the many programs sustained by the Angus Fund. Upcoming events funded by the Angus Foundation include the Angus Women Connected Conference, hosted by the American Angus Auxiliary, March 23-25 in Excelsior Springs, Mo. and the National Junior Angus Association’s Raising the Bar leadership conference, March 31-April 3 in Lubbock, Texas.
