Red Angus Marketing Programs offer a variety of services that allow you to spend more time visiting with bull customers while streamlining the sale promotion and preparation process. Sale Catalog Data Extracts (SCDE) allow you to download all pedigree and performance information directly from the RAAA database, thus eliminating much typing and proof reading.
Utilize Red Angus Stockyard for FREE promotion of feature sale lots.
E-mail Kevin LeMaster, Publisher/Advertising Director, to place your ad in the ARA Magazine, which is mailed to all RAAA members and all of last year's bull customers.
Fill out the form to ensure your sale date is in the ARA Magazine's Sales & Events and online calendar, and to receive free posters and Red Angus promotional materials. Would you like to expand your mailing list?
The ARA Magazine mailing list can be purchased at a very reasonable rate. Please contact Halla Pfeiff for more information.
Through the new REDSPro system, members can pull data extracts to prepare production sale catalogs. SCDEs no longer must be requested to be pulled by the National Office.
The option is available under the Herd Management Tab/ My Reports in REDSPro.
To pull your Sale Catalog Data Extract, create a group of your sale animals. This can also be accomplished by copying and pasting the desired registration numbers you wish to pull.
Select “SCDE/Pedigree” to pull the animals data into the standard .CSV format download. This is the same format that was previously being pulled by the National office.
If templates are still needed please send an email request to SCDE@redangus.org. As always, please allow a few business days for this data to be returned.
The download includes three-generation pedigrees, complete performance data and the entire EPD suite with accuracies and breed-ranking percentiles.
The CSV text file may be imported into Microsoft Excel, and on most computers with Excel or other spreadsheet application installed can be opened by double-clicking the CSV file; if that doesn't work, then right-clicking the CSV file and choosing Excel from the "Open With" menu should work.
