2007 Angus Foundation Silent Auction Sets New Record


Angus supporters at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Tulsa, Okla., helped the Angus Foundation silent auction gross a record breaking $14,076 in proceeds to benefit education, youth and research for the Angus breed.  The annual auction, which was July 3-7, in conjunction with the NJAS, featured 82 items donated by Angus enthusiasts from across the country.

Two pieces of historical Angus memorabilia and an embryo package were the top-selling items at the 13th annual silent auction.  Dean and Gloria Hurlbut, Saint Joseph, Mo., donated a popular Angus bull patterned carpet, as well as a framed print of Frank Champion Murphy’s pastel sketch “The Angus Breed is Launched in the United States of America.”  The carpet, which sold for $2,200, was purchased by Bob, Jeannie and Jennifer Ann Smith, Marshall, Texas.  The print, which sold for $1,400, was purchased by Vance and Connie Uden, of TC Ranch, Franklin, Neb.

An embryo package, donated by Circle S Angus Ranch, Kingman, Kan. and the Kansas Junior Angus Association rounded out the three highest-selling items.  Bill and Betty Werner, Rapid City, Ill., purchased the item with a bid of $1,100.

Angus Foundation President Milford Jenkins attributes the record-breaking success of the auction to the numerous Angus supporters involved in this year’s auction.  “All credit is to be given to the donors of the wonderful gift-in-kind items and the enthusiastic bidders who helped us realize another record-setting silent auction at the NJAS.”  Jenkins also notes that such enthusiastic support creates opportunity to further benefit the Angus breed, “It is always exciting to observe the fun, yet highly spirited and competitive bidding occur especially at the close of the auction.  The proceeds from this fundraising activity will further empower the Angus Foundation to fund education, youth and research activities for the advancement of the Angus breed and benefit of Angus breeders and youth.”

The Angus Foundation was established in 1980 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 AssociationSM at 816-383-5100 or go to www.angusfoundation.org.
