"A Historic Angus Journey - The American Angus Association, 1883-2000,"

This first-ever published history of the American Angus Association walks the reader through 117 years of Angus history leading up to the 21st century. It covers the boom years following World War I, through the disastrous recession and depression years of the 20s and 30s, and tells the story of how the Association was almost split apart in the efforts to end proxy voting and install a democratic form of government.

The book tells about the leaders whose efforts changed the Association over the years. Learn about the fight to control dwarfism in the 1950s and the programs that were developed to prevent a repeat of this genetic defect scare. Other highlights include the development of the performance records program and National Sire Evaluation, the rocky early years of Certified Angus Beef (CAB) LLC and its tremendous success, plus much more.

Keith Evans, former director of public relations for the Association, wrote the book, which includes more than 350 pages of photographs and history of the American Angus Association.

The book is available in a black leather-bound collector's edition for $50 and a beige cloth-bound edition for $25. To order these books online click here.
