Angus Foundation raises $15,000 with sale of Certified Angus Beef barn painting
Funds raised at Angus Convention will benefit the Angus Foundation’s mission.
The Angus Foundation raised $15,000 with the auction of a highly desired Certified Angus Beef (CAB) barn painting at the 2022 Angus Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. The painting was auctioned at the annual American Angus Association® Awards Dinner and Reception Sunday, Nov. 6 and was purchased by Gardiner Angus Ranch of Ashland, Kansas. Funds raised will help further the Foundation’s mission of supporting Angus education, youth and research.
In 2018, CAB celebrated 40 years in business with the “Brand the Barn” campaign, painting 40 barns belonging to Angus breeders in 25 states across the country with the Certified Angus Beef ® brand logo. In response to the campaign, many Angus enthusiasts joined the wait list to have their own barn painted. The Foundation offered breeders the unique chance to skip the line and proudly represent the brand on their operation.
“We’re incredibly thankful for the Angus family’s support of this offering from Certified Angus Beef,” said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director. “The generosity of the Gardiner family will help continue the Angus legacy and is an investment in the future of our breed.”
CAB will commission artist Troy Freeman to brand the Gardiner Angus Ranch barn and will also provide $1,000 to host a celebration event in conjunction with the barn painting. Funds raised will support a variety of programs including educational opportunities for breeders, leadership development conferences for Angus youth and groundbreaking industry research.
