American Angus Association® names new regional manager

Shawn Gray hired to serve Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.


The American Angus Association® welcomes Shawn Gray of Samson, Alabama, as the regional manager for Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. As a University of Florida graduate, Gray has spent his career diversifying his skillset in seedstock production, commercial backgrounding, nutrition, forage management and more.

“My background in seedstock, cow-calf, stocker/backgrounding and feedlot operations has provided me an understanding of the relationship between sectors,” Gray said. “I plan to use this knowledge to be a resource for Association members in the Southeast.”

Gray comes to the Association after spending nearly five years managing over 10,000 head of stocker cattle at Crimson Cattle Company.

Levi Landers, director of field services, said Gray’s experience and complete understanding of the industry, specifically in the southeastern region of the country, make him a great fit for this role. “Gray’s extensive industry tenure and diverse experiences will serve as a great asset to members in Region 13.”

In the regional manager position, Gray will work with breeders to promote Angus cattle, consult on management practices, help locate Angus seedstock and inform cattlemen and women about Association programs and services. He will also advise producers on marketing opportunities available through the Association, including advertising in the Angus Journal, Angus Beef Bulletin and other avenues.

Gray begins serving Region 13 on July 5 and will hit the road attending Angus events. Contact Shawn Gray at or 352-425-9326.
