Angus Foundation Silent Auction Raises $13,000

For 20 years, the annual fundraiser has enhanced Angus education, youth and research.


Bids on more than 150 items raised $13,000 toward the Angus Foundation’s mission during the annual Silent Auction during the 2015 National Junior Angus Show July 13-18 in Tulsa, Okla. Proceeds from these items help fund support for Angus education, youth and research initiatives.

“The silent auction offers a unique opportunity for collectors of Angus memorabilia and those who create Angus art,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “The variety attracts people of all ages and allows the Angus Foundation to raise unrestricted funds for the Angus breed’s ever-growing education, youth and research needs.”

Dick and Diane Beck, Sharpsburg, Ga., purchased the top-selling item for $1,000, which was a hand-sewn quilt titled, “Peace,” donated by Ann Simpson in memory of her children, Jeff and Mandy.

The second high-selling item was a toy feed truck and stock trailer, donated by the Happy Toy Maker, Weekly Livestock Reporter and Texas Junior Angus Association, purchased by Davis Angus, Foss, Okla.    

The third high-selling item was a framed version of the late Cory Watt’s National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Directions article, “What Really Matters.” The item was donated by the Watt Family, Iva, S.C., and purchased by Double A Angus, Dade City, Fla.

From its inception in 1995, the 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.
