Angus Convention in the Lone Star State

Head to Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 4-6 to attend the American Angus Association’s premier event. The Western ranching spirit is alive and well in Fort Worth, Texas. Whether visiting the historic stockyards and catching the daily cattle drive or exploring the rich history and heritage preserved downtown — it’s a location that brings out an appreciation and respect for the nation’s cattlemen and women, past and present. So it’s fitting that the American Angus Association would choose to host the year’s premier event in the Lone Star State. The Angus Convention is a gathering place for all quality-minded cattle producers and friends from every sector of the cattle business and offers industry-leading education, networking and entertainment. The first weekend in November, Angus breeders, commercial cattlemen and allied industry partners will join together to learn and set a vision for the future, participate in the organization’s Annual Meeting, take in the trade show, and enjoy the cowboy culture Fort Worth, Texas, has to offer. “We want to invite each and every one of you to the 2017 Angus Convention in Fort Worth, Texas,” said American Angus Association Board Member James Henderson of the Bradley 3 Ranch near Memphis, Texas. “It’s a great time to renew friendships and do the business of the Association, and we as Texans want to welcome you to Fort Worth.” Registration and hotel reservations open July 1, and more information will be available online at www.angusconvention.com. 2

TOURS Quincy Farm Products Quincy Farm Products provides food waste recycling to food manufacturers and processors nationwide, as well as providing animal feed products and ingredients to livestock feed producers. The primary reason food manufacturers, grain processors and grain millers work with Quincy Farm Products is to solve food waste scrap problems. We do this by auditing food manufacturers’ waste streams and identifying materials that can be diverted from expensive landfills and instead recycled into livestock feed products or separated and upgraded into high-quality ingredient inputs.

Musgrave Angus Since 1961, Musgrave Angus has been breeding and selecting cattle that work in the “fescue” grass environment; perform and breed under the stress of a humid climate. We believe that good cattle start from the ground up and have always been critical on fleshing ability, structure and phenotype. Today you can find our genetics working around the world in both purebred and commercial sectors of the industry. As we face swings in the cattle industry our focus remains the same in producing a superior product that can improve our customers’ bottom line.

JK Ranches

Raising cattle has been a family tradition dating back to the 1880s for the Kirk family. This Pike County farm family has seen many changes on their ranch through the years, but the family recently embarked on a venture that might change how cattle are raised in the Midwest. JK Ranches, Jack and Jarrod Kirk and their families, celebrated the opening of their new 300-head cow gestation barn south of Griggsville on Saturday, Dec. 10. This barn is the first deep-pit monoslope cow gestation barn built in the Midwest.
