We all get so busy with our day to day work that it becomes difficult to keep up with the latest news, the latest trends, and all the information that is out there for our cattle.  All breed associations have some sort of communication they put out.  The Red Angus Association has the American Red Angus Magazine, but they also have and e-newsletter that comes out weekly.  It is very beneficial to read both to keep up on the latest changes and/or information coming out of the national offices.

The 2017 Fall Sale Season is fast approaching.  We are extremely excited to start the season with an inaugural sale at the Iowa State Fair called the Summer Sizzler National Red Angus Sale on Friday, August 18.  The sale has brought some of the finest genetics in the Red Angus industry together in one place.  Then it will be on to the 10th Annual Kick Off Classic. This year brings about a change for the Kick Off.  We will be in Knoxville, Iowa at the Knoxville Regional Livestock Market.  An extremely RED friendly barn, we are looking forward to what this change will bring.  With many of the same consignors, the sale is also adding some new faces.  Our schedule is filling up fast this fall and we are looking forward to sale season!

As sale season wraps up, it has been quite a ride.  We had the honor of managing the 2016 National Sale this year.  And we are excited to announce we will be managing the 2017 National Sale in Des Moines during the Iowa State Fair as well.  Red Angus cattle are still in high demand. It has been very exciting to see the many new faces to the breed as well as the youth that are starting to come into the breed as Adult members.

The 2017 fall schedule is already starting to fill up for us.  And this summer we will again be honored to be helping the NAJRAE in Stillwater Oklahoma.  The JRA will also be coming to the state of Iowa for Round Up this year.  We have been asked to do an educational presentation while Round Up is visiting the Solution Genetics facility. The youth are the future of our breed and we couldn’t be more proud to be involved in two great events for our youth.

We have also set a goal for ourselves for the 2017 season to keep our News feed of our website up to date.  We have been so busy this has been challenging! As the sale season wraps, we have reflected on this past season with great admiration for the breeders and their programs.  It is an exciting time to be a breeder of Red Angus!

The 2015 NAJRAE is in full swing and the kids are having a blast.  They have taken a herdsmanship quiz, did a sales talk to try to sell their animal to a judge, interviewed for scholarships, had a team fitting contest and judged livestock.

Forrest Roberts from the NCBA spoke to the kids and presented them with a strong education on the beef industry.  The kid are participating in a mentoring program where the young one are partnered up with an older one.  This program has had an unbelievable success and has given the older kids an opportunity to teach their skills and knowledge to the younger ones, but at the same time give the younger ones the ability to get to know and look up to the older ones.

Quiz bowl teams are being established, preparations for showmanship and friendships are being forged. Shy ones are coming out of their shells and the amount of knowledge about the beef industry being presented to and from the youth at this event is incredible.

As with any organization, there are fund raisers.  This event is ran SOLELY by volunteers and the Red Angus Breeders, Ag businesses and parents all contribute to help support and fund this great event.  Again this year, there will be a fund raising auction on Friday night after the Awards banquet.  Some great items have been donated to help support this great educational event.  You can see some of the items up for auction right here.  In addition to the items available in this catalog are also calendar pages for the 2016 NAJRAE Calendar.  If you are unable to attend this event, be sure to give someone a call if you are interested in any of these lots.

Preparations for the 2015 NAJRAE is ramping up!  The 2015 IReport has been released and the kids are getting excited! Be sure to check out the IReport on our website as well as the NAJRAE website and facebook page. Red Cow Relocators is proud to be the sponsor for the 2015 NAJRAE Showmanship Buckles this year. We are very excited to support our Red Angus Juniors. These kids are the future of our breed!!  It is amazing to see these kids show animals in this show and then see them bring progeny back from those animals year after year.  The Red Angus is a truly spectacular breed that can not only work in the pasture but also shine in the show ring.  We were in awe last year at what we saw in the barn.  The kids were networking in the barn.  They were learning from one another as well as the adult advisers.  It was fun watching the parents work with their kids as well as their neighbors in the stall. The pride the kids were taking in not only their animals, but their areas, their states and each other was not only heart warming, but gave us a sense of pride to be a part of this breed and the Red Angus family!
