Time Running Out to Be Part of Angus History

Angus breeders have a unique opportunity to obtain a permanent display of their support at the American Angus Association headquarters.


Now’s your chance to support the future of the Angus breed through youth, education and research while also being a part of Angus history and a permanent display at the American Angus Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo.

The new walkway at the Association headquarters is a stunning entrance to the heart of the Angus business. The walkway includes customized granite pavers that will forever display Angus supporters’ devotion to the Angus breed.

You can obtain a granite paver through an unrestricted, tax-deductible donation to the Angus Foundation. Two sizes are available to choose from: 6 in. by 12 in. granite pavers and 12 in. by 12 in. granite pavers. A limited number of both sizes are still available and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis with payment.

The pavers can be customized with names, farm/ranch names, dates, in memory of, etc., text that fits the line and character limits for each size.

“These pavers are such a unique way to be a part of the Angus legacy,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “It’s a win-win scenario for Angus supporters: get their name included on the beautiful front entrance walkway to the Association headquarters and support the youth, research and education efforts of the Angus Foundation at the same time.”

You will want to act now, as the “Building an Angus Legacy” pavers will only be available until April 1.
