Angus Foundation celebrates 35 years
The Angus Foundation reached new heights in its efforts to advance education, youth and research endeavors for the Angus breed. The nonprofit arm of the American Angus Association celebrated its 35th anniversary during the National Angus Convention earlier in November and reported more than $11 million in total revenue.
The Foundation also reported distributing more than $276,000 in scholarships this year to Angus youth and investing more than $1 million in important research spanning the beef cattle business during the past decade.
“The Angus Foundation’s assets are now in excess of $17 million to support our mission of education, youth and research projects,” said Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Current research ranges from beef cow efficiency, biological efficiency, fescue toxicosis, hair shedding, heat, environment issues, adaptability, and in addition to that, carcass meat quality.”
These investments, he stated, will benefit the Angus breed, as well as the beef cattle industry and producers across the country.
