Angus Convention 2018

Comprehensive coverage from the Angus Media team.

I Am Angus | Fabric of Our Forebears Premieres Christmas Day

By Katy Holdener   |   American Angus Association

“Personal portraits of the individuals responsible, directly or indirectly, for the production of Angus beef told across the mediums of film, photography and print.”

The words above represent the original description of the “I Am Angus” concept, initially developed by the Angus Media team in early 2010. Since the first segment premiered in October of the same year, the Association has released 36 complete films. Each film, broadcast on RFD TV and Angus TV, has garnered a following from thousands of cattle producers and consumers alike.

Telling the story of cattlemen and women, cattle feeders and beef industry icons give the rural community a voice in both the cinematography and printed journalism realms. Reaching thousands with each film and Angus Journal story, the “I Am Angus” productions allow the American Angus Association to broaden the reach of the Angus breed’s role in the beef industry.

We invite you to watch the trailer for the newest film, “I Am Angus | Fabric of Our Forebears” available on the new I Am Angus website. Check the website regularly for additional segments and accompanying Angus Journal stories and images as they are released throughout the year.

Fabric of Our Forebears

Premiering Christmas Day, “I Am Angus | Fabric of Our Forebears” dives into the rich heritage of the Angus breed and where the breed now exists across the world. From the original Aberdeen-Angus herds in Scotland to the plains of South Dakota, down to the bayou and everywhere in between, the Angus story is told from eight breeders’ perspectives in the latest film.

Join us as we tell the stories of how the eight cattlemen and women across the world are connected by a common thread, the legacy of the Angus breed.
