Coleman Angus to donate 2023 Angus Foundation Heifer Package
Sale of Coleman Chloe 173 to support Angus Foundation’s mission of education, youth and research.
The 2023 Angus Foundation Heifer Package will be 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. The heifer will be offered in January at the 2023 Cattlemen’s Congress to support the Foundation’s mission of furthering Angus education, youth and research efforts.
“We are honored to donate the female for the 2023 Foundation Heifer Package,” said Larry Coleman, owner of Coleman Angus. “To be able to give back — because we’ve been so fortunate — is exciting.”
Coleman Angus is a family operation who prides themselves in placing emphasis on the power of the Angus cow. Through meticulous selection for maternal traits, they have grown a loyal base of customers who value their herd’s genetics. The ranch hosts an annual bull sale in February, offering between 175 to 200 bulls, and holds a female sale each year in October.
“We are thrilled Coleman Angus has offered this female from the iconic Chloe cow family,” said Jaclyn Upperman, Angus Foundation executive director. “The Coleman family recognizes the importance of the Angus Foundation’s mission as we work to ensure a bright future for the breed.”
The sale of the Angus Foundation Heifer Package will take place Friday, January 6, 2023, prior to the start of the 84th National Angus Bull Sale during Cattlemen’s Congress. The sale will start at 2 p.m. at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
