Angus Foundation hosts 150 years of Angus

The Angus Foundation kicked off the year with a celebration commemorating 150 years since Angus cattle first arrived in the United States. The 150 Years of Angus celebration was held Jan. 6 in Oklahoma City during Cattlemen’s Congress and raised nearly $20,000 to support the foundation’s mission. The event welcomed the Angus family for an evening of fellowship and featured refreshments, door prizes, auction items and the announcement of the 2023 Angus Herdsman of the Year.

      In 1873, George Grant settled in Victoria, Kansas, with four Angus bulls from Scotland. In the following 150 years, the breed has built a legacy in the beef industry. The Angus Foundation works to ensure this legacy continues through its mission to support education, youth and research efforts for the breed. In support of the Foundation’s mission, the event featured several auction and door prize items. Past National Junior Angus Board foundation director Josh Jasper served as the auctioneer, and items sold included: a Live Oak Plantation Experience, an Angus History Sketch, a Custom Greeley Hat and a Two-Night Wine Country Getaway for Six.

      "We had a wonderful evening celebrating this huge milestone for our breed with the Angus family," said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director. "It’s through our donors’ generous support that we can ensure the legacy we’ve built for the last 150 years continues well into the future."

      The program concluded with the announcement of Jeff and Kathi Creamer of Lazy JB Angus, Colorado, as the 2023 Angus Herdsmen of the Year. The Creamers’ longstanding dedication to Angus cattle is a testament to the breed’s influence on cattlemen and their operations.
      "We always feel fortunate to have an opportunity like this for our breeders to gather," said Mark McCully, American Angus Association CEO. "This year it’s extra special as we commemorate such an important event in Angus history."

            The Angus Foundation supports a diverse set of efforts focused on ensuring the Angus legacy remains strong. For more information about the Angus Foundation, visit
