Angus Foundation Heifer Package

Angus Foundation Raises $127,500 at the National Western Stock Show

Krebs Ranch

Since 1980, the Angus Foundation has delivered an elite Angus Foundation Heifer Package at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver to generate unrestricted funds for Angus education, youth and research efforts. The Angus Foundation also offered five cutting-edge confirmed heifer pregnancies from notable Angus breeders. Combined, the six lots raised an impressive $127,500 in support of the Angus breed’s future.

Tari Hoagland and Rick Smith of Lakeview Angus in Mead, Colorado, purchased the Angus Foundation Heifer for $65,000. The package also includes: 30 days of free insurance from American Live Stock Insurance Co., Geneva, Illinois; free transportation to the buyer’s ranch provided by Lathrop Livestock Transportation, Dundee, Illinois; and an advanced reproductive technology package from Trans Ova Genetics, Sioux Center, Iowa.

Krebs Ranch of Gordon, Nebraska, donated the elite heifer, KR Queen 8213. The scarcity in her genetics made her a valuable investment for the buyers, as she is the only ET calf of that particular mating to leave the ranch.

“We are so excited to be bringing this heifer back home with us,” Hoagland said. “She’ll be a great donor and will be instrumental in developing our bulls.”

The five confirmed heifer pregnancies raised a collective $62,500. Those pregnancies are:
