The Angus breed is home to the industry’s largest beef cattle performance database, fueling genetic progress through each generation. Breeders rely on the comprehensive set of data to continue growing the nation’s quality beef supply.
Angus Media provides unrivaled marketing opportunities for cattle producers, and Association programs such as AngusSource allow breeders to set their calves apart from the crowd.
Registered-Angus cattle continue to set the industry pace for quality genetics. Demand remains strong year after year, as reflected by strong sales trends and an increase in Angus cattle on the market.
Stay up-to-date on the latest headlines in the American Angus Association’s Newsroom, where you can read articles, watch videos and learn more about the organization’s programs and services.
Continued education is central to driving progress within the beef cattle industry. Through Association events, connect with fellow breeders and discover applications that make a real difference on the farm or ranch.
Whether you are looking for special gifts or supplies for your herd, plenty of options are available through the Angus Foundation-hosted online store and the American Angus Auxiliary’s Gift Barn.
As the nation’s largest beef breed organization, the American Angus Association serves more than 25,000 members across the United States and Canada.
The American Angus Association sponsored Roll of Victory program gives attention to the individual show-winning animals themselves (rather than entirely to their sires and dams) with continued recognition to the sires of major award winners. The system also places attention to the winners and sires and dams
of winners on an annual, current year basis, rather than on accumulation of points over many years. The ROV show season runs from June 1 through May 31.
Points are calculated from Super Point and Recognized ROV shows across the United States. Angus breeders do not have to sign up to participate in the program, as animal’s points will be calculated automatically.
