Angus Foundation Silent Auction Raises More Than $12,500

The annual fundraiser enhances Angus education, youth and research.


Bids on more than 135 items raised $12,879 toward the Angus Foundation’s mission at the annual silent auction held during the 2016 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) July 3-9 in Grand Island, Neb. Proceeds from these items help fund support for Angus education, youth and research initiatives.

“A wide variety of collectibles, art pieces and other unique items are available through the silent auction,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “All proceeds from the silent auction are unrestricted in their use, so the Angus Foundation can put those funds toward the education, youth and research efforts that need the most support.”

Linz Heritage Angus, Crown Point, Ind., purchased the top-selling item for $725, which was a wine barrel sink donated by Bar Water Angus, Anderson, Ind.

There were three items that tied for the second-highest selling honor at $400 each. One of those items was an 8 ft. windmill donated by the 2016 NJAS Show Committee, purchased by Varilek Angus, Geddes, S.D.    

Another item was a sports wagon filled with items made in California. The item was donated by “California Moms” and purchased by Krebs Ranch, Gordon, Neb.

The third item was a grilling kit, including a Yeti cooler, cookbook, grilling tools and BBQ sauces, bought by Maplecrest Farms, Hillsboro, Ohio and donated by the Missouri Junior Angus Association.

From its inception in 1995, the silent auction has grown as an annual fundraiser and generated unrestricted financial support for various activities sponsored by the Angus Foundation, including Angus youth scholarships, Raising the Bar Conferences, the Beef Leaders Institute (BLI) and a number of beef cattle related research projects.
