Angus Foundation Raises More Than $11,500 at NJAS

The annual silent auction brings in unrestricted funds to be used throughout the year.


During the 2019 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) held in Louisville, Kentucky, the Angus Foundation held their annual silent auction to raise unrestricted funds to be used for its mission of funding and supporting education, youth and research within the Angus breed and agricultural industry. The Foundation uses the money raised for numerous scholarships, conferences and research projects

“We appreciate everyone who participated in this event and took time to give back to the Angus industry,” said Rod Schoenbine, Angus Foundation director of development. “Everyone who bought one of our silent auction items has played a crucial role in allowing the Foundation to continue their support of the future of this breed. We want to give as many opportunities for growth within our industry as possible, and that starts with gathering the resources to make that happen.”

The silent auction was open from Monday to Saturday and had a wide range of items. From home decorations to those of historical significance to the Angus breed, there was something for everybody. NJAS attendees filtered in and out of the silent auction booth all week checking on their items, placing bids and pledging their support to the betterment of the Angus breed. Items were donated from all across the country and prompted several bidding wars over who would take home the prize.

The three top-selling items, along with selling price, donor and buyer information were:

1) 1958-1996 Fort Worth Stock Show Exhibitor Pins (in a display/shadow box)
