44 Farms to Donate 2015 Angus Foundation Heifer
Proceeds from the Denver sale will benefit Angus education, youth and research.
The Angus Foundation is pleased to announce 44 Farms, Cameron, Texas, as the 2015 Angus Foundation Heifer Package donor. She sells January 2015 at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo.
“We are excited about the great work Milford Jenkins and the entire Angus Foundation team is doing to advance research, educate and inspire our youth,” says Bob McClaren, 44 Farms owner. “These are the best of times for the Angus breed and the American Angus Association. We are proud to assist, because the best is yet to be.”
44 Farms began in 1909 when S.W. McClaren acquired his first tract of Little River farmland. Today, four generations later, two of the great-grandchildren Robert S. McClaren and Janet McClaren Salazar, are committed to honoring and enhancing the tradition of a successful farming and ranching operation – 44 Farms.
“All of us at 44 Farms are honored and very excited to donate the 2015 Angus Foundation Heifer Package,” says Doug Slattery, 44 Farms chief operating officer. “The efforts of the Angus Foundation to advance and help educate our Angus youth are remarkable, and we are proud to be a part of it.”
Additional details about the Angus Foundation Heifer Package regarding name, registration number and pedigree will be released at a later date. More information can be found online at www.angusfoundation.org or by calling Jenkins at 816-383-5100.
