Board Commentary
As I write this, I am sitting in Phoenix, Arizona, after attending the 2018 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show. One of the key speakers at this year’s convention was Jim Abbott, a former Major League baseball pitcher who played despite having been born without a right hand. - On page 12
Association Commentary
March is a month that makes people think about college basketball. Ranchers have feeding, calving, readying for the upcoming breeding season, and plenty of other work to get done. However, many cattlemen will catch a game or two, especially if their favorite team makes the NCAA “March Madness” Tournament. - On page 16
Marketing Update
As most ranchers know, calving season can be one of the most stressful, yet rewarding times of the year. While you are busy worrying about cows in the pasture, it is easy to forget about marketing your calves months down the road. The Red Angus Marketing Programs allow you to capitalize on your Red Angus investments. - On page 20
Leading Beef Breed Associations Partner to Release 'Premium Red Baldy' Program
At The Red Reception, a special breeder’s event held to commemorate the joint venture, Brink said, “Both Red Angus and Hereford are committed to the success of commercial cow-calf producers, and we believe the pathway to profitability begins with having the right genetics in the cow herd. - On page 24
Member Services Update
Many of the DNA requirements are overlooked or misunderstood about what needs to be accomplished so that offspring can meet a full registered status. Until an animal has meet all requirements, a registration certificate cannot be printed, a transfer cannot take place or the registration of future offspring cannot occur. - On page 34
Red Angus 2018 National Open, Pen and Junior Show
The National Western Stock Show is an event that many look forward to and anticipate year after year. There was a great deal of positivity surrounding the Red Angus events that ran from January 4-8. It sure didn’t hurt anything that the weather was absolutely gorgeous in Denver - it rarely dropped below freezing and ranged from 40-50*F in the daytime. - On page 38
JRA Update
Congratulations to Caleb and Ethan Bouldin of Bennett, Colorado. The brothers were recipients of the 2018 National Junior Red Angus Show Herdsman Award at the National Western Stock Show. Their outstanding devotion to hard work, helping out fellow exhibitors, and commitment to the Red Angus breed led them to receive this award. - On page 52
It’s Tax Time!
Giving can be a challenge, especially when money is tight. That makes the idea of financial planning even more important. The fact that giving to charity can help reduce your tax burden is well known, especially if you're in a higher bracket. - On page 64
Hardy Red Angus Cattle Thrive in California Foothills
Nestled in the Central Coast foothills of California lies a Red Angus commercial ranch with a rich history leading five generations back. Sargent Cattle Co. LLC, operated by father-son pair Mike and John Orradre, traces its Red Angus roots to the late 1990s. - On page 68
True Grit Ensures Success in Grid Marketing
Cattle producers rarely achieve great success without fortitude, determination and unyielding courage. This spirit of true grit settled the western frontier more than one hundred years ago and today’s cattlemen and women can dig into that same resolve to expand their marketing territories for greater profit gains. - On page 84
Breaking Down a Grid
Below is an example of a grid – termed “grid” because of the lines and divisions. This is an example only; it is not indicative of any particular grid by any packer. The assumptions are expressed in dollars per cwt on the hot carcass weight basis. - On page 88
Industry Benefits from Keenan's Impact on Breed Improvement
When Larry Keenan – freshly graduated from Kansas State University with a Master's in animal science – applied for the internship at the Red Angus Association of America in 2004, little did he know the impact he would have on the genetic progression of the breed and the beef industry as a whole. - On page 100
