Going to be at Agribition? Stop by for a visit!

The Canadian Angus Association will have four people from the office attending Agribition in Regina, SK this year. We will be wandering the grounds, visiting with all our wonderful breeders as well as taking tag orders on site.

If you haven’t ordered tags for your 2011 calves yet, need a couple extra, or have any questions about anything from the Alberta Age Verification Incentive Program to age verification, we can help you.

Stop by the Saskatchewan Angus booth located outside the old Masterpiece Sale ring if you are in need of anything. Julia will be there taking tag orders from you Wednesday through Friday, and the tags can be waiting for you when you get back to the farm.

If you're attending Agribition, plan to attend the Commercial Cattlemen's Beef on a Bun on Friday evening. This event immediately follows the Commercial Cattle Show in the Stadium West at approximately 6:00 p.m.

Good luck to everyone showing their Angus cattle! We look forward to seeing you in Regina.

2010 Farmfair a Success

On behalf of the Canadian Angus Association, I would like to commend the Angus exhibitors at Farmfair for their hard work in displaying a group of cattle that from top to bottom we can be proud of. Angus is the number one breed in Canada because of the quality of our cattle and the dedication of our breeders.

I would also like to thank the Farmfair organizers for their dedication in arranging for numerous international guests to attend the various breed shows along with a tour of several local producers, among whom Angus was a major influence. I think most people will agree that opening new markets and improving international relations is essential for the well being of not only our purebred industry, but also of Canadian agriculture in general.

If you would like more information about Farmfair or show results, visit the Farmfair website.
