Angus Producers Attend 2013 Beef Leaders Institute Event participants traveled throughout the Midwest to explore the beef industry. Angus breeders from across the Unites States and Canada gained knowledge and enhanced their leadership skills during the sixth-annual Beef Leaders Institute (BLI), hosted June 17-20 by the American Angus Association®. While on the four-day institute, 20 young cattle producers toured packing plants, feedlots and other industry segments. The learning opportunity is designed to give applicants, ages 25-45, a chance to meet with Association staff and industry representatives while networking with their peers in the Angus industry. “BLI is a great opportunity for Angus producers who are wanting to enhance their leadership skills, learn more about the beef industry, and meet new people,” says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. “We enjoyed hosting them on this premier educational experience.” The BLI tour began at the Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo. Following presentations from Angus Genetics Inc., Angus Productions Inc., Certified Angus Beef LLC and the Angus Foundation, the group traveled to Iowa and Nebraska for several in-depth tours. Their stops included a Tyson beef processing plant, Whole Foods grocery store, food distributor Sysco, the GeneSeek genetics lab and a Cargill Meat Solutions deli meat processing plant. Rhonda Wulf of Morris, Minn., says programs such as BLI are great ways to build connections in the beef industry. Angus Names Director of Activities, Events and Education Robin Ruff promoted to lead the American Angus Association’s event-planning efforts. The American Angus Association® named Robin Ruff as the new director of activities, events and education for it’s nearly 25,000-member organization. Ruff’s commitment during her 6-year tenure in the junior activities department has earned her the opportunity to manage the Association’s entire event schedule and further develop educational programs. “With Robin’s background and enthusiasm for the breed, the Association is confident she will lead our members in the right direction,” says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. “We are eager to see the new life and ideas she will bring to our activities and events.” In her new position, Ruff will work with members to coordinate events, such as the Beef Leader’s Institute, Cattlemen’s Boot Camps, National Western Stock Show, and more. She will also oversee the Association’s award programs, including the Angus Heritage Foundation, Historic and Century Awards. “BLI helps people see the industry from a broader level, get out “The American Angus Association represents more of their comfort zone, meet new people, and bring back new than a breed,” Ruff says. “It symbolizes a group of people who energy when they return to work,” Wulf says. “This opportunity believe in something bigger than themselves, and I want them really helped me recalibrate my focus on the beef industry and to feel that way when they walk into an Association event, large look at it from a more holistic manner.” or small.” Most of all, Ruff says she is looking forward to ex Participant Andrew Stewart, Greensburg, Ind., says panding the Association’s educational outreach.

Performances will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the Morton Building, lot 513, at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center. The “Break New Ground” theme symbolizes the latest technology, equipment and innovations in the agriculture industry, all of which will be showcased at the three-day event. For Greg, Nathan and Kendal Peterson, breaking new ground in the industry has come in the form of agriculture-inspired musical parodies, visually communicating their passion for farming and raising livestock. Their popular YouTube music videos, “I’m Farming and I Grow It” and “Farmer Style,” feature lyrics about farming and agriculture set to the tunes of pop-culture songs and footage of the brothers performing their daily farm duties. “I’m Farming and I Grow It,” a parody of a LMFAO song and posted to YouTube in 2012, went viral in less than a week, receiving more than 2.8 million views. “Farmer Style” is a parody of the hit “Gangnam Style,” which was widely popular across the country in late 2012, and has received more than 13 million views to date. Hailing from Kansas, Greg and Nathan Peterson will travel to London, Ohio for the Review and will likely perform their newest parody “A Fresh Breath of Farm Air,” inspired by the theme song from the hit ‘90s television show “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” along with their other hits. Their appearance is sponsored by Morton Buildings. Autograph sessions will be held after each performance.
