From the President:

Welcome to Fall in Louisiana. We had another good summer, and most of us avoided the major summer drought we typically face each year. Predictions are for a cold winter, so prepare accordingly.

Please be on the lookout for nomination forms for the BULL SALE on January 24, 2015 and FEMALE SALE on March 14, 2015. With prices where they are, now is the time to put your best animals forward.

The American Angus Association National Convention and Trade show is coming up on November 4-6, 2014 in Kansas City, MO. This should be a well attended meeting to determine the future direction of our breed. We expect to have all of Louisiana’s votes counted this year. I will be in attendance and will provide a detailed report back to our membership.

Congrats to our elected Delegates. I look forward to seeing you in Kansas City. Feel free to contact me any time with concerns or questions.

In November 1960, a group of Louisiana businessmen joined together with a common interest to form the Louisiana Angus Association. The purpose of this organization is to encourage and extend the influence of Angus cattle; to educate, promote and encourage the breeding and development of better and higher quality Angus cattle; and to promote the interest of membership by creating better trade and sale opportunities.
