American Angus Association Off to a Great Start at 2022 Cattlemen's Congress
Thu, 06 Jan 2022 07:10:32 CST
After a successful inaugural Cattlemen’s Congress for Angus breeders a year ago, they are back for the second year of the event at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. Last year, folks came because the show was one of few where they could show cattle during pandemic shutdowns. This year, they are coming back because of Oklahoma hospitality.
Listen to Ron's conversation with Mark here.
Mark McCully, CEO of the American Angus Association, told Ron Hays, senior director for the Rural Oklahoma Network, Angus exhibitors were thrilled to participate in last year’s event and have been anxious to come back.
“And they sure did - we have had great numbers (of returning exhibitors),” McCully said. “We have already started some sales and things are off to a great start!”
This year, Angus exhibitors once again have multiple venues to participate in. “We tried to provide some different marketing venues, whether it is in the Pen and Carload Show or the Open Show,” McCully said. “We got exhibitors from around the country that have brought bulls and females in.”
According to McCully, the National Angus Bull Sale has grown in popularity this year.
“It has become super competitive for breeders,” McCully said. “Bringing top-end genetics - different programs, different breeding philosophies - cattle are not all bred the same, but that is what a national sale should be.”
The National Angus Bull Sale is set to begin at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 7, 2022, in the Super Barn Arena at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. The sale consists of 66 high-quality bulls to choose from, selling as 52 lots from proven programs across the U.S. featuring elite genetics with phenotype.
