Andrews hired to serve Angus Association’s Region 11
Regional manager Landon Andrews will start mid-September for Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah.
Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah will welcome a newly hired regional manager with the American Angus Association in mid-September 2023. Landon Andrews of Spanish Fork City, Utah, brings industry experience to the position as the co-owner and manager of Shandar Angus Ranch.
“There is no other cattle breed with stronger genetics, valuable seedstock and marketability like the Angus breed,” Andrews said.
He said he looks forward to working as a resource to support members throughout the four-state Region 11.
“I have deep family roots in the western cattle industry,” Andrews said. “I hope to educate members and commercial breeders of the great programs our association offers.”
All 13 regional managers are full-time staff members of the Association. They work with cattle breeders in their designated regions to promote Angus cattle, improve management practices and assist breeders who want to get started in the Angus business.
Regional managers also work with breeders to make sure their advertising needs are being met through the Angus Journal and Angus Beef Bulletin. They can often be found working Angus sales and shows or representing the Association at livestock conventions, while serving as a liaison between the organization, its membership, users of Angus genetics, industry partners and academia.
“Landon brings a wealth of knowledge to the Association regarding the beef industry,” said Levi Landers, director of field services. “His long-time ties to the breed will serve him well in his new role, and he is undeniably committed to the beef industry and the Angus breed.”
Until Andrews officially starts on September 18, members in the western region should contact Landers at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Association’s member services at 816-383-5100.
Producers outside of the western region can find contact information for their local regional manager at https://www.angus.org/assoc/RM. Anyone needing assistance is encouraged to contact regional managers.
