Texas Couple Posthumously Inducted into Honorary Angus Foundation
The late Terry and Pam Bailey recognized as 2017 Honorary Angus Foundation inductees for supporting the future of the Angus breed through the Angus Foundation.
The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) recently recognized the late Terry and Pam Bailey, High Roller Angus, Center, Texas, as the newest inductees into the Honorary Angus Foundation at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Des Moines, Iowa.
The Baileys were still fairly new to the Angus business, but had already started making a difference through their support for the Angus Foundation’s youth, education and research efforts.
“Terry and Pam were interested in helping the Angus Foundation from the start,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “We were honored that they chose to give to the Angus Foundation, and they will be missed.”
Tragically, Terry and Pam were lost in an accident on Feb. 15, 2017.
The Baileys founded High Roller Angus with operating partner James Butler. Terry always told his children, Dustin Bailey and Carmen Mackey, that he wanted to leave a legacy asset for them and his grandchildren. The Angus business provided potential for unlimited growth. Terry and Butler invested millions in Angus cattle while acquiring thousands of acres in East Texas with goals to grow one of the largest and most genetically elite Angus herds in the U.S.
Butler and the Bailey families will continue Terry and Pam’s legacy of building for the future through their progressive High Roller Angus herd.
At the 2017 NJAS awards ceremony, the Baileys were posthumously honored along with fellow 2017 inductees Paul and Lynn Hill, Champion Hill Angus, Bidwell, Ohio.
In 1985, the NJAA Board of Directors established the Honorary Angus Foundation to recognize and thank those who have shown incredible support of Angus youth. Seven Angus breeders were honored as the first inductees, and each year, the NJAA honors up to three individuals.
Any member of the American Angus Association is eligible to nominate individuals or organizations for the Honorary Angus Foundation. A complete list of members can be found online.
