Message from your Canadian Angus Association Board of Directors regarding the Angus Cow Enrollement (ACE) program

Good day, fellow Canadian Angus Association member:

Thank you for your interest and engagement regarding the new CAA Angus Cow Enrollment (ACE) program announced last fall. We appreciate your letters, e-mails, telephone calls, texts and personal conversations.

At our Board meeting this week, we decided to keep in effect the existing Fee Schedule (implemented on January 1st, 2015).

We are further pleased to let you know that ACE will come into effect on January 1st, 2018… as a VOLUNTARY program.

The opportunity to enroll your cow herd in “ACE” will be a new addition to the Fee Schedule at the rate of $65/cow.

All members will receive information throughout this year regarding the ACE program so you can choose to take advantage of this exciting and optional new initiative.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Canadian Angus Board of Directors or our Chief Executive Officer Rob Smith.

Again, thank you very much. And may your calving and bull sale season be successful.

Kind regards,

Your Canadian Angus Association Board of Directors


History Book

We’re thrilled with the interest that our members are showing in the Canadian Angus Foundation’s new history book project. Project leads Doug and Linda Henderson have heard from many people who are working on their Angus stories and are gathering photos to share. James Bowman’s grandson, who recently entered the Angus breed with his daughter, contacted us to discuss the project. James Bowman was the breed inspector who reviewed the records and pedigrees of all Angus cattle in Canada and provided the data for the first Canadian Aberdeen Angus Herd book published in 1908.
As we work on the new book, the 1985 history book produced by Lloyd Pickard is receiving new interest. The Canadian Angus Association would be grateful for any additional copies that members would like to donate. These books will be auctioned to raise funds to produce the new history book and the Canadian Angus Foundation. Please contact Belinda Wagner (bwagner@cdnangus.ca or 306-757-6133) or Tina Zakowsky (tzakowsky@cdnangus.ca or 1-888-571-3580 ext 3584) to make a donation.
Don’t forget to share your Angus story! Contact Tina at Angus Central or submit your story online.
