The scenic beauty of the majestic Rocky Mountains, pristine pine-and-aspen forests and twisting canyons of Colorado’s Front Range will greet cattlemen and women from across the country as they gather in Colorado Springs, Sept. 13 to 15, for the 2017 National Red Angus Convention. Online registration is open at RedAngus.org.

Red Angus cattle continue to add value to premium markets and build customer reputations through the Feeder Calf Certification Program. Red Angus’ ability to consistently grade Choice or higher and maintain low levels of Yield Grade 4s make them a target for packers to fill premium branded-beef program demands. Cattle wearing the yellow FCCP tag or green Allied Access tag signifying enrollment in Red Angus value-added programs may submit carcass data to be considered for the distinguished Grid Master Award.
