Deadlines and Reminders

It seems like it's always a busy time of year for Angus breeders, and for almost anyone involved in agriculture. We would like to remind you of some upcoming deadlines to ensure they aren't forgotten:

If you are an authorized user and register your animals online, July 15 is the deadline to register your Spring 2010-born calves online for $15 regardless of age. If you are not yet an authorized user but want to take advantage of these savings, you need to contact us ( very soon to be set up as an authorized user.

If you are on the Canadian Angus Performance Program, your 2010 spring born calf records should be submitted to us by July 15 to allow us adequate time to process your 205 day worksheets.

Showdown is currently underway and the first Gold Show is only a couple weeks away. Please submit your show animal registrations as soon as possible and mark them rush. We will do our best to work with you to accommodate your deadlines but please keep in mind the possibility of parentage spot tests, genetic defect testing requirements, and possible missing information. All animals entered in Canadian Angus Association sponsored Gold Shows must be registered before the show. Don't wait for the last minute to register your animals and risk not being able to participate.

We'll have an update from Showdown for you next week.
