Long-Term Recognition Award Photos

Well, this summer has clearly gone by faster than expected! One of my many jobs over the last 3 months has been to gather, identify, and digitize photos of the Long-Term Recognition Award Recipients. Although I have had good luck in finding many of the images, it is apparent that we are still unable to find, or have not received, photos for many of our outstanding breeders. Below, you will find a list of all of the farms or families that do not have a picture collected. If any breeder sees their name, it is because we would still like to collect an image from you to be displayed in Angus Central with the other Long-Term Recognition Award Recipients. These images can be family photos, couple photos, or other photos that accurately depict the breeders being recognized. All we ask is that the image be of high quality, and that, if possible, the award is present in the photo. 

Here are a couple examples of photos in our collection:
