Board Commentary
It was packed full of fun and educational opportunities for all. To start off there was a speaker that spoke of opportunities and how they present themselves every day. So, that got me to thinking about this. - On page 8
Association Commentary
The Red Angus Association of America’s history of operation in Texas spanned more that 50 years. It began in 1961 with the hiring of Sybil Parker to be the Association’s Executive Secretary, along with her husband, C.T. Parker, who worked initially as an unpaid fieldman. - On page 10
Russell Assumes Duties of RAAA Accounting Director
“Janet is a self-starter with a very strong work ethic,” said RAAA CEO Tom Brink. “She is very detail oriented with a strong background in accounting and bookkeeping. We are looking forward to her contributions to the Red Angus team.”. - On page 12

What are my Marketing Options?
Currently, our industry is experiencing market prices that no one predicted last fall or this spring. I believe this is due to continued export growth, optimism in our country’s new leadership, continued growth in consumer demand, and feedyards staying current with their supply. - On page 32
Red Angus EPDs - Ranch Tested; Building Ranchers' Trust
The abundance of data presented to producers to use in genetic selection decisions has become almost excessive. The majority of bull sale catalogs contain actual and/or adjusted weights and ultrasound measurements, ratios for every trait, and Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs). - On page 36
On-Ranch Vaccinations Establish Lifetime Cattle Health
In numerous published sources, consulting veterinarians and nutritionists have provided health and well-being recommendations for feedlots, but no published data addressed cow-calf operations on this subject. - On page 42
Recommended Vaccination Protocols
Cow-calf producers should build a good working relationship with their veterinarian and follow his or her recommendations. Geographic and environmental concerns, nutritional requirements and special health needs all factor into an operation’s tailored health protocol. - On page 45
