Angus Foundation Benefits from Annual Silent Auction


            The 2005 Angus Foundation Silent Auction earned more than $9,900 at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), July 17-23 in Denver, Colo.  Angus supporters from across the country and state junior Angus associations donated a total of 67 items for the auction.  Donated items included antique herd books, jewelry, and John Deere paraphernalia, just to name a few.

Dick and Diane Beck, Red Lodge, Mont., purchased the high selling item again this year.  She bought the original American Angus Association Library carpet for $2,500.  Fred and Shirley Williams, Fort Smith, Ark., purchased the second high selling item, which was an Angus bull and heifer head print set.  The prints were purchased for $1,500.  Both high selling items were donated by Dean and Gloria Hurlbut, Saint Joseph, Mo.

“The silent auction is always a fun and enjoyable fund raising activity for donors and aspiring bidders alike,” said Milford Jenkins, director of development for the Angus Foundation.  “The funds raised will empower the Angus Foundation to further advance its education, youth and research initiatives.  We are very grateful for this generous support and we owe tremendous gratitude to everyone who helped make this year’s silent auction another outstanding success for the Angus Foundation!”

The Angus Foundation was established in 1981 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization to support Angus education, youth and research.  To learn more about the Angus Foundation and the programs it supports, call the American Angus Association at (816) 383-5100 or go to
