Angus Foundation Silent Auction Raises More Than $12,500

The annual fundraiser enhances Angus education, youth and research.


The Angus Foundation raised more than $12,500 on 125 items during the annual silent auction during the 2017 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) on July 9-15 in Des Moines, Iowa. Proceeds from these items help fund support for Angus education, youth and research initiatives.

“The silent auction always brings out the best in Angus enthusiasts,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “All of the donated items auctioned off during the event are very special in some way or another, and proceeds from the silent auction are unrestricted in their use, so the Angus Foundation can put those funds toward the education, youth and research efforts that need the most support.”

Tim and Elizabeth Harsh, Radnor, Ohio, purchased the top-selling item for $550, which was a custom graphite portrait donated by the Wisconsin Junior Angus Association.

The second-highest selling honor, at $500, went to a Kansas State University football autographed by head coach Bill Snyder donated by the Kansas Junior Angus Association, purchased by Hite du Boize Cattle Co., Valley Center, Kan.    

There were two items that tied for the third-highest selling title at $400 each. Hoover Angus Farm, Ellston, Iowa, bought an oak mirror with cattle designs, donated by Houks Angus, Blakesburg, Iowa. A Penny & James 1955 dispersal sale book, donated by the American Angus Association, was purchased by Kurt and Arlene Schaff, Kansas City, Mo.

For 22 years, the Angus Foundation silent auction has grown as an annual fundraiser and generated unrestricted financial support for various activities sponsored by the Angus Foundation, including Angus youth scholarships, Raising the Bar Conferences, the Beef Leaders Institute (BLI) and a number of beef cattle related research projects.
