Bid Online, Support the Angus Foundation
AngusAuctions.com live auction for an elite bred Angus heifer, donated by Nichols Farms, and the Association’s 18 millionth animal registration number.
The Angus Foundation’s Supporter Recognition Event this November will feature two outstanding sale offerings to benefit the organization’s youth, education and research initiatives — an elite bred Angus heifer and claim to the Association’s 18 millionth animal registration number.
Both will be sold the evening of Monday, Nov. 2, and AngusAuctions.com will broadcast the event live online. Bidders from across the country can contribute to this one-of-a-kind opportunity to support the Angus Foundation. Visit the website to set up a free account and view details on upcoming sales and events.
Through an Angus Foundation Board-approved sale, an elite bred Angus heifer, Nichols Lula B14 (AAA Reg. #17971576), donated by Nichols Farms will be auctioned with all proceeds used to start a research endowment in Dave Nichols’ honor. Go online to angusfoundation.org to view a video of the bred heifer.
Nichols, from Bridgewater, Iowa, is a longtime supporter and current member of the American Angus Association Board of Directors. This fall, Nichols will be inducted into one of the livestock industry’s most prestigious honors, the Saddle & Sirloin Club Portrait Gallery in Louisville, Ky. To celebrate that occasion and Nichols’ desire to help advance the Angus Foundation’s beef cattle research efforts, the “Dave Nichols Beef Cattle Research Fund” will be established through the Angus Foundation.
For those Angus history enthusiasts and collectors of Angus memorabilia, there will also be an auction for the American Angus Association’s 18 millionth animal registration number. Proceeds from this sale will benefit the Angus Foundation’s mission to support Angus youth, education and research.
The Angus Foundation’s Supporter Recognition Event is an annual celebration to recognize supporters who have contributed $250 or more throughout the current fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2014-Sept. 30, 2015).

There’s still time to submit a donation to the Angus Foundation, for anyone interested in attending.
