Mexico Hosts the 2015 World Angus Secretariat

An international gathering of Angus breeders takes place Oct. 12-25 in Mexico.


The Mexican Angus Association is hosting an event in mid-October that promises to feature the beautiful Mexican countryside alongside Angus cattle.

The World Angus Secretariat, an organization of more than 20 Angus breed associations worldwide, will conduct its biennial meeting to discuss the latest breed information and technological advances – as well as tour some of the region’s locales and, of course, prized breeding stock.

The Mexican Angus Association will host the 2015 event Oct. 12-25 in the Chihuahua, Durango and Mazatlán-Sinaloa regions, and the American Angus Association® encourages its membership to consider attending this once-in-a-lifetime event.

The World Angus Secretariat will include a technical meeting, educational workshops, youth programs, Angus cattle auctions, commercial exhibits, social events and ranch tours, as well as pre- and post event tours for individuals or families.

The 2015 event will open with a pre-tour of the northeast corner of the state of Chihuahua, from October 12-14. This pre-tour will allow participants to experience the Barrancas del Cobre (Cooper Canyon), a stunning range of greenish cooper hue canyon walls at the heart of the Sierra Tarhumara. In addition, the World Angus Secretariat will conclude with an optional post-tour of the port of Mazatlán from Oct. 25-27.

All lodging, food and travel at and between the three venue cities can be included in your secretariat registration (complete package). Visit the 2015 Word Angus Secretariat Meeting website for more information and to complete your registration to attend this one-of-a-kind event. You can also follow the latest updates on Facebook.
