Meyer Recognized as Red Angus Advocate of the Year

Posted October 5, 2023

DENVER — A true supporter of the Red Angus breed both on the farm and off, this year’s Red Angus Advocate of the Year is Randy Meyer of Brunswick, Missouri. As owner and operator of Meyer Family Farms, along with Steve Meyer, Randy was awarded the honor by the Red Angus Association of America during the 70th National Red Angus Association Convention, held Sept. 13-15 in Denver, Colo.

The Advocate of the Year recognizes a special Red Angus member or commercial producer who passionately expresses support of the Red Angus breed to seedstock producers, industry partners and/or consumers.

Always promoting the Red Angus breed, Randy is one of the primary organizers of the Red Tie Event. This elite cattle sale gives several Red Angus breeders an opportunity to put their cattle in front of buyers they may not have been able to reach on their own, plus share the production cost of hosting a sale.

“Randy is definitely a great advocate of Red Angus cattle,” said Harold Bertz, of Mayview, Missouri. “Not only is he a great supporter of local, state and national associations, but Meyer cattle truly exemplify what Red Angus is about: carcass and mother cows. Randy is a great voice for the beef industry, but the Meyer cattle speak volumes for Red Angus.”

The Meyers use artificial insemination to incorporate top Red Angus sires into their herd, displayed by the quality of cattle produced on their operation. From top-selling females to four consecutive years of Grid Master Award-winning feeder calves, Meyer Family Farms produce cattle that speak volumes for the Red Angus breed.
