Red Angus Foundation, Inc. Presents Unique Auction Offerings

Commerce City, Colorado – Red Angus breeders will be jumping out of their chairs to place bids at the upcoming Red Angus Foundation, Inc. (RAFI) auction. The auction, slated for 7 p.m. on September 13, offers a wide variety of items to vie for, however, the prize gem of the auction is a “Pick of the Herd” package from Mushrush Red Angus of Strong City, Kansas.

The buyer will have choice of any heifer calf, bred heifer or mature cow, including donors, from more than 1,000 head of high-quality females. In addition to the animal, the buyer will also receive a support package including: 50 units of semen from Genex, 30 units of semen from Select Sires, and $500 toward any service from Trans Ova Genetics. The Mushrush family has indicated the funds from their generous donation should be allocated towards the RAFI Research and Development Fund. This fund ensures that RAFI will continue to help finance research projects throughout the U.S. and continue the pattern of providing universities much needed research resources. 

Other items on the sale list are multiple pieces of artwork, ranging from pencil-drawn to oil-on-canvas, and a set of custom-made spurs from Twisted Steel Spurs. Producers will have their chance to own a piece of Red Angus history by bidding on a vintage “Chieflining" pamphlet written by George Chiga featuring Choctaw Chief, and a rare “1” Red Angus promotional poster. 

The RAFI Auction is one of many distinguished events during the 64th annual National Red Angus Convention, to take place in Colorado Springs, Colorado, September 13-15. Also on the docket are the Commercial Cattlemen’s Symposium, a guest address from Zoetis’ Dr. Gary Sides, a private tour of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, and the annual awards banquet.
