Pat Goggins inducted into Saddle & Sirloin

Lifelong livestock marketer and Angus breeder Patrick “Pat” Goggins is the recipient of the 2011 Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Award.

“During the last 50 years, Goggins built his livestock auction business into one of the largest and most successful in the country,” said Terry Cotton, general manager of Angus Productions Inc. (API) and chairman of the nominating committee.

Goggins, who resides in Billings, MT, has played a critical role in the industry as an innovative rancher, with the industry’s first-ever video sales in the marketing and promotion of seedstock. He also created a voice for rural America with his publication, Western Ag Reporter.

“Goggins is also a committed stockman, having built his registered Angus herd, Vermilion Ranch, into one of the nation’s largest and most successful,” Cotton said. “His ranch is a model of environmental and sustainable stewardship. And the genetics he has developed can be found in herds across America.”

He will be honored for his contributions to the industry this fall during a special ceremony in conjunction with the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, KY.

Angus breeders and others are invited to honor Goggins, Sunday, Nov. 13, during the portrait presentation and banquet at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center (KFEC). The banquet begins with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by dinner, presentations and the unveiling of the official portrait in the KFEC, South Wing, Room 205.
