Important Information about Canada Post Service Disruptions
On Tuesday, November 20th, it was announced that the backlog of mail due to the ongoing disruptions to Canada Post service is so severe that mail currently in the system may not be delivered until the new year. Your Canadian Angus Association strongly recommends that members find other ways to submit their paperwork to avoid extreme delays in work arriving at Angus Central for processing. Options include:
1. Complete the application to become an authorized user and send it to email@example.com so that you can submit your work online
2. Send transfer requests by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Send DNA testing requests by email to email@example.com
4. Respond to your RFIs (Requests for Information) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
5. If you have a quick correction or message for the member service team, send a text to 587-439-3440. Be sure to include your name, your member ID, and a short, clear message. Please note that this phone number does not receive calls.
6. If you are unable to access electronic services, fax your work to (403) 571-3599. Please ensure that you print clearly and use a dark pen before sending the work to ensure readability.
7. If you are unable to submit your work electronically, by email or by fax, please consider using a courier service to ensure that your work arrives quickly.
Please be aware that 2019 membership renewal packages will be mailed from Angus Central on Friday, December 7th. Non-electronic users may experience large delays in receiving their information.

Canadian Beef Sustainability Acceleration (CBSA) pilot
The CBSA pilot is an effort to create a certified sustainable beef supply chain. Canadian producers with cow-calf operations, backgrounders, and feedlots are eligible to participate. This pilot will help strengthen consumer trust in the Canadian beef industry, in addition to potential financial reward for participants. Participants must become certified under the Verified Beef Production Plus (VBP+) program or Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) framework to be able to participate in the program. For more information visit the CBSA website.
Makes a wonderful gift for all those difficult to buy for people on your list!
