Red Angus announces Choice+ Red Angus Grid

FCCP-enrolled calves eligible for new Tyson grid

RAAA and Tyson Foods introduce the new Choice+ Red Angus Grid directed at Red Angus strengths. The program revolves around incentives equivalent to “Angus” premiums for cattle that grade upper 2/3 Choice, as well as additional incentives for load lots of cattle grading a high percentage Choice and Prime.

The program is for FCCP-enrolled cattle only and is offered only through Tyson Foods.

Call RAAA at 940-387-3502 to enroll your cattle in the FCCP. For more information on harvesting FCCP-tagged cattle on the new Choice+ Red Angus grid, contact Myron Edelman, director of breed growth, at 307-351-6032.

Tag your calves for profit

It's not too late to enroll in FCCP or Allied Access

It's not too late to enroll this spring's calf crop in Red Angus' tag programs. Contact the Red Angus Marketing Department at 940-387-3502 to enroll your calves in the Feeder Calf Certification Program (FCCP) "Yellow Tag" program or the Allied Access "Green Tag" program. Enrollment is simple and free – the only cost is the 99¢ tag! Calves just need to be tagged before they leave the ranch of origin so you can still tag at branding or even weaning this fall.

Enrollment in FCCP ensures genetic, age and source verification and gains access to Pro-Cow, the Tyson Red Angus Choice+ grid and other marketing opportunities. Allied Access ensures age and source verification.
