Angus Foundation Silent Auction Has Something for Everyone


Angus supporters of all ages came together at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), July 11-17, in Denver, Colo., to support the 2010 Angus Foundation Silent Auction. The event grossed more than $7,800 in proceeds benefiting the FoundationÕs education, youth and research activities. Individual donors and state Angus associations contributed 72 items to the 15th annual auction.


ÒGenerous support from Angus breeders, Angus youth and friends from allied industry enabled the Angus Foundation to enjoy a very productive and prosperous week at the NJAS,Ó said Foundation President Milford Jenkins. ÒThe silent auction fundraiser is always a popular activity for NJAS attendees, young and old alike, as hundreds of bids were placed on the various items.Ó


RockinÕ Cross Ranch, owned by the Ward family of Woodward, Okla., purchased the top-selling item for $875, semen package of five units of EXAR Lutton 1831. Donated by Ethan, Hannah and Ester McCabe of Elk City, Kan., this package was also the highest-selling item donated by junior Angus members.


The Fitzgerald brothers, Bryce and Brody, of West Grove, Pa., tied the Ward family in total dollars spent for a great cause with their purchase of four items including one-of-a-kind Angus memorabilia.


Individual Angus supporters and state Angus associations also generously donated other items to the silent auction, including original items made by youth members of the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA), assorted gift baskets, jewelry and various Angus collectibles.


From its inception in 1995, the silent auction has grown annually as a fundraiser that generates unrestricted financial support for various activities sponsored by the Angus Foundation, such as the Raising the Bar Conference, CattlemenÕs Boot Camp, bovine marbling research, and undergraduate and graduate scholarships.


All buyers and donors of auction items will be recognized for their support in the Angus FoundationÕs Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus that now stands at more than $6.2 million raised toward the goal of $11 million by Dec. 31, 2011.


The Angus Foundation was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support Angus education, youth and research. To learn more about the Angus Foundation and how you, too, can support the campaign, call (816) 383-5100 or go to
