Cutline: The 2022 Angus Foundation Heifer Package, donated by Tehama Angus Ranch of Gerber, Calif. was purchased by Brumfield Angus Farms of Sawyer, Mich.
Angus Foundation Heifer Package sells for $50,000
Brumfield Angus Farms of Sawyer, Mich. purchases pick of Tehama Angus Ranch fall heifers.
Since 1980, the Angus Foundation Heifer Package has been sold to generate unrestricted funds to support its mission of youth, education and research. This year, Brumfield Angus Farms of Sawyer, Mich. purchased the Foundation Heifer Package, donated by Tehama Angus Ranch of Gerber, Calif. The package sold on Jan. 7, at the start of the National Angus Bull Sale during Cattlemen’s Congress in Oklahoma City, Okla., and raised $50,000 to support educational programs and scholarships.
The Borror family generously offered the pick of their fall heifers for the 2022 Angus Foundation Heifer Package. The package also includes free transportation to the buyer’s ranch provided by Lathrop Livestock Transportation, Dundee, Ill., and an advanced reproductive technology package from Trans Ova Genetics, Sioux Center, Iowa.
The 2022 Foundation Heifer Package donated by the Borror family serves as a true testament to their longstanding Angus roots and commitment to producing high-quality cattle. A maternal focus has been important since Tehama Angus Ranch was started with the purchase of Bill Borror’s first 4-H project. From one heifer to 50 cows and now 500, the family has a deep heritage within the breed, notably in California where they were the first family to have an Angus bull sale. This focus on desirable maternal traits, coupled with powerful Tehama sires including Tehama Patriarch F028, Tehama Tahoe B767 and Tehama Bonanza E410 results in an elite opportunity for the pick of their fall heifer crop.
“The most generous and thoughtful donors, like Tehama Angus Ranch and Brumfield Angus Farms, are found right here in the Angus breed,” said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director. “With an outstanding offering from the Borror family and the charitable impact made by Brumfield Angus, this tradition continues forward and provides financial backing for many of the educational opportunities funded through Angus Foundation grants.”
The Angus Foundation Heifer Package has raised more than $2.7 million since the inception of the program. For more information about the Angus Foundation or the annual Angus Foundation Heifer Package Sale, visit AngusFoundation.org.
