Profits from Laflins Lady Barbara 6165 will be used to enhance the Angus Foundation’s existing Robert Laflin Memorial Fund.
Proceeds from the sale of Lyons Pride 6007 will be used to support the newly created Kansas Angus Association Endowment Fund, which will award scholarships to Kansas Angus youth.
