2012 Angus Foundation Silent Auction Grosses $13,800

Proceeds will benefit the Angus Foundation and its youth, education and research efforts.


Angus supporters of all ages came together at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Louisville, Ky., to support the 2012 Angus Foundation Silent Auction on July 18-21. The auction grossed $13,800 in proceeds benefiting the Foundation’s youth, education and research programs. Individual donors and state Angus associations contributed 131 items to the 17th annual auction.


“It’s truly an honor each year for the Angus Foundation to receive the generous levels of support and participation in the silent auction from attendees during the National Junior Angus Show,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Our primary goal for this activity is to create a setting for adults and youth alike to socialize with other Angus enthusiasts, learn more about the Angus Foundation, while simultaneously helping to raise funds used for scholarships, education and research important for the advancement of the Angus breed. All credit for the silent auction’s success goes to the donors of the items, along with everyone who placed bids on the items.”


Two items generated $1,100 each and were the top sellers at this year’s auction. The first was a hand-made, one-of-a-kind toy corral set, purchased by Leonard and Agnes Bayer of Country Lane Farm, Weston, Wis. Leo and Sam McDonnell of McDonnell Angus, Columbus, Mont., donated the corral set. The other top-selling item for $1,100 was a limited-edition Louisville Slugger bat, No. 1 of 150, engraved especially for the 2012 NJAS. The bat was purchased by Scott and Elaine Foster of Seldom Rest Farms, Niles, Mich., and was donated by the 2012 NJAS.


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 Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference, Beef Leaders Institute, Cattlemen’s Boot Camps and a variety of Angus-related research projects.
