Show Me the Future

Angus enthusiasts from across the country met in Kansas City to kick off the 2005 National Angus Conference & Tour Sept. 27-29. Nearly 200 people sat in on the “Back to Basics” presentations overviewing Association programs and services Tuesday afternoon. Keynote speaker Tom Field, a Colorado State University professor of animal science, set the tone for the meeting with his keynote address Tuesday evening. And it was standing room only for an all-star lineup of speakers Wednesday morning.

Tour participants visited the headquarters of the American Angus Association in Saint Joseph, Mo., Tuesday afternoon, taking advantage of the opportunity to visit with staff of the Association and Angus Productions Inc. (API). The Missouri Angus Association coordinated a display of cattle Tuesday evening at Old MacDonald’s Farm, Savannah, Mo. The tour continued Wednesday with stops at Circle A North, Huntsville; Fox Run Farms LLC, Mexico; and Sydenstricker Genetics, Mexico.
