Two lucky attendees of the 2017 Angus Convention in Fort Worth, Texas, will walk away with more than $100,000 in grand prizes.

“We are so fortunate to have such terrific 2017 Angus Convention sponsors like Priefert, Tru-Test and Caterpillar,” says Becky Weishaar, Angus Convention Trade Show Manager. “These generous grand prizes are going to be a game changer for two very lucky Angus breeders.”

Priefert and Tru-Test have donated a complete cattle handling system designed for approximately 35 head. The corral features a solid sweep with a straight working alley that is adjustable to one of four widths and leads to a Priefert Model S04 Squeeze Chute. The Tru-Test XR5000 Indicator, HD1010 load bars, scale mounting brackets and XRS2 EID stick reader complete the system and allow the user to capture the wide range of animal information you need to make the best decisions. An added bonus is the new Tru-Test WaterWell automatic waterer. The energy-free ball waterer can accommodate up to 100 head.

Caterpillar has donated a one-of-a-kind, custom-made Cat 289D Compact Track Loader tailored with black paint and Angus finishing touches. The Cat 289D provides Angus producers the versatility to help multitask with ease, so you can move bales, clean pens, mix feed and more. This multi-function machine helps increase your productivity by moving through daily chores more quickly with outstanding power and a comfortable cab.

The grand prize drawing will be held on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. Must be present in order to win.

Registration is now open for the 2017 Angus Convention, which takes place Nov. 4-6 in Fort Worth, Texas. Visit the convention website,, to register and make hotel reservations for the three-day event, access a convention schedule, trade show map and more.
