Angus Foundation offers elite genetics in five January sales
Offerings will sell at Cattlemen’s Congress and the National Western Stock Show.
The Angus Foundation announced its plans to offer four elite heifer pregnancies, along with the Angus Foundation Heifer Package, in January 2023. The pregnancies will sell in Oklahoma City during Cattlemen’s Congress at the Bases Loaded, Denim and Diamonds, and Angus at the Congress sales, and in Denver at the Angus Foundation Female Sale at the National Western Stock Show. Lathrop Livestock Services has also donated complimentary trucking of the females. Funds raised by the pregnancies further the Foundation’s mission to support Angus education, youth and research.
“We are thrilled to offer such an exciting set of heifer pregnancies in the month of January,” said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director. “We’re thankful for the generosity of the breeders who have donated these pregnancies and their commitment to the Foundation’s mission.”
In addition to the pregnancies, the Angus Foundation Heifer Package will sell at the National Angus Bull Sale, Jan. 6, 2023 in Oklahoma City during Cattlemen’s Congress. The 2023 Angus Foundation Heifer Package is being donated by Coleman Angus of Charlo, Montana. The heifer, Coleman Chloe 173 (AAA+*20076459), is the highest $M valued Coleman Chloe female in the ranch’s herd and is backed by a pedigree represented by the operation’s most notable cow families. She is due to calve to Coleman Full Deck 118 on January 20, 2023. The heifer package also includes an Advanced Reproductive Technology Package from Trans Ova Genetics, trucking to the buyer donated by Lathrop Livestock Services and 30 days of mortality insurance donated by Liberty Specialty Markets.
