Board Commentary
Growing up living and working alongside my father and my grandfather tending our farm, I watched this principle lived out – and these men set a standard of commitment to stewardship that continues to inspire me today. It is a legacy I hope to pass on to my children and grandchildren. - On page 6
Association Commentary
Stewardship is a subject worth discussing. Good stewards are conscientious and intentional about everything they do. They see the big picture. They think long term. Unselfishness defines their approach to both business and life. - On page 8
Are You a Grid Master? Submit Data.
Red Angus cattle continue to add value to premium markets and build customer reputations through the FCCP. Red Angus’ ability to consistently grade Choice or higher and maintain low levels of Yield Grade 4s make them a target for packers to fill premium branded-beef program demands. - On page 12
Marketing Update
At the writing of this article, the spring 2016 bull sale season is wrapping up. What an exciting time for Red Angus breeders, their families and customers to gather and share some great cattle, fellowship and food. - On page 12

The oldest USDA Process Verified Program in existence, the Red Angus Feeder Calf Certification Program, which cattlemen have come to recognize quickly with the distinctive yellow tag that denotes Red Angus-genetic feeder calves, is setting new enrollment records. - On page 20
Member Services Update
Reporting Herd Inventories is a very important and quick process that must be completed to comply with Total Herd Reporting. This essential process allows for accurate billing and for the precise submissions of resulting calf crops that, by completing, avoid reactivation fees. - On page 26

After graduation, she plans to pursue a degree in Veterinary Medicine. As an ISU student, she is active in Block and Bridle and the Pre-Vet Club. - On page 32
Reporting Heifer Exposure Data is Key in Identifying Fertility
As calving season has wrapped-up for most spring-calving operations, ranchers’ priority has now transitioned to the 2016 breeding season. Most producers are excited about all of the data collected on their new calf crop - birth weight, calving ease score, udder score of dam - and look forward to continuing to achieve their data-collection goals. - On page 38
Committee Extends Call for Board Nominations
RAAA members who have a vision for the future and a desire to cultivate the business of the Red Angus Association of America will have the opportunity to run for the Board of Directors this September at the National Red Angus Convention in Oklahoma City. - On page 40
Conservation Spans Generations for Doherty Family
First-calf heifers calve out at the Doherty's Red Rocks Ranch where Joe can keep a closer watch over them. This past calving season only one heifer out of more than 80 head needed her calf pulled - and Joe said he shouldn't have been in such a hurry. "I probably wouldn't have needed to pull that calf either but I did." - On page 42
