LEWISBURG, W.Va. — Reese Tuckwiller, Lewisburg, West Virginia, native has been selected as the American Angus Association® regional manager for Delaware, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina. He joins the Association from Western Sire Service where he was the production manager.
“Reese has gained valuable industry experience since graduation,” said David Gazda, American Angus Association director of field services. “He possesses a strong knowledge of the breed through his involvement in his family’s registered Angus operation in West Virginia.”
Prior to joining Western Sire Service, Tuckwiller was the West Virginia University livestock judging coach, and he’s been the assistant herdsman on his family’s farm since January 2002, where he is a ninth-generation cattleman.
“This Angus territory raised me, and I’m looking forward to helping the next generation in that area,” Tuckwiller said. “We can sometimes take the quality of cattle from the East Coast for granted, and I hope to be able to reflect the quality to others.”
Tuckwiller grew up on a registered Angus seedstock farm, showed Angus cattle and served on the National Junior Angus Board, as well as serving as vice chairman. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science in production management and had several herdsman and animal science internships before graduation.
