Trowbridge Angus Provides ‘Embryos for Education’ to Benefit the Angus Foundation
Phil Trowbridge of Trowbridge Angus, Ghent, N.Y., and his family, are believers in the future of the Angus breed through youth, education and research, and have used many avenues to support the Angus Foundation. The latest support effort, ‘Embryos for Education,’ allows other Angus breeders to join the Trowbridge family and give back to the Angus Foundation while taking part in the new Angus online auction, www.AngusTradingPost.com.
Nineteen lots of embryos are listed on the online auction by Trowbridge Angus, and all proceeds from the sale of these embryos will benefit Angus youth scholarships and activities, educational programs for junior and adult Association members, and current and future research projects at universities across the country – all of which are funded by the Angus Foundation.
“On multiple occasions, Phil Trowbridge has taken the lead by making personal financial commitments to help foster the advancement of a newly implemented fundraising initiative, along with help secure the commitments necessary to bring a fundraising drive to successful completion,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “This generous commitment of donating the sale proceeds from these embryos is another illustration of Phil and his family’s unselfish ongoing commitment to giving back to the Angus breed that has meant so much to them and their family.”
Trowbridge has also served the Angus Foundation as a former chairman of the Angus Foundation Board of Directors. Jenkins says his enthusiasm and advocacy of the Angus Foundation’s value to the Angus breed and members across the country has been an inspiration to all in the Angus breed over the years.
“The Angus Foundation is in place to support the future of the Angus breed, and donating all of the proceeds from the sale of these embryos to the Foundation is just one way we can provide more opportunities to support Angus breeders and our youth,” Trowbridge says. “My family and I believe in the future of Angus, which is why we invest in the Angus Foundation.”
